A Comparison of the Differences in Postoperative Chronic Pain Between Video-Assisted and Robotic-Assisted Approaches in Thoracic Surgery
Because of the recent advancement in robotic thoracic surgery, this retrospective study aimed to evaluate post-operative chronic pain in robotic versus video-assisted approaches. Although patients who undergo RATS are known to have better immediate post-operative recovery, the results did not find a statistically significant difference in chronic pain among the two methods. Further comparative studies are recommended.
