This video presents a uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery left lower posterobasal anatomic segmentectomy S10. The segmentectomy uses the inferior approach, which is less difficult technically because it avoids the fissure dissection of the bronchovascular elements. When the fissure is incomplete, this inferior approach is the best approach.

This video and text describe the utility and technique of a totally robotic-assisted pulmonary resection with concomitant left atrial appendage ligation.
A Thoracic Surgeon’s Dream Operating Room: A Cios-Spin Intraoperative CT Scan to Do Localization Prior to an Intuitive Xi Segmentectomy
June 6, 2022
This is a video of thoracic surgeon Joel Dunning’s dream operating room. He was able to bring an intraoperative CT scanner called the Cios-Spin into his robotic theater so he can mark nodules himself prior to robotic resection.
Management of Recurrent Bronchopleural Fistula: A Multidisciplinary Approach for A Reconstructive Challenge
May 31, 2022
A forty-seven-year-old woman presented multiple times with a reoccurring bronchopleural fistula and post-pneumonectomy multi-drug resistant empyema. In challenging cases like this, a multidisciplinary approach between thoracic and plastic surgery is imperative.

Minimally Invasive Sternal Reconstruction for Chronic Partial Sternal Separation After Cardiac Surgery
May 23, 2022
Sternal dehiscence without mediastinitis is a rare and relatively benign complication after cardiac surgery. However, it may cause severe discomfort for a patient. Traditional approaches include the Robicsek technique and its modifications. In this video the authors present less invasive approach for chronic partial sternal separation using titanium implants.
