Posterior Uniportal VATS for the Posterior Segment (S2) Nonanatomical Resection Followed by Lobectomy: Major Bleeding Event
March 11, 2019
February 28, 2019
Filmed at the 2018 STS Annual Meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Douglas Wood moderates a discussion on the disparities in access to lung cancer screening.
February 8, 2019
This video demonstrates a robotic left apical and posterior segmentectomy, performed in a patient with bilateral adenocarcinoma, during which an aberrant superior pulmonary vein was incidentally discovered.
February 6, 2019
This video demonstrates a right upper lobectomy through a subxiphoid biportal approach. This technique offers a microinvasive surgery for major pulmonary resection with respect to safety and oncological principles, and it works in synergy with ERAS programs for better recovery.

The authors demonstrate a robotic right lower lobectomy with utilization of subxiphoid assistant port for a 35 mm lung nodule secondary to metastatic adenocarcinoma of the colon.
Debate: Lung Cancer Screening Should Be Limited to Those Recommended by the ACCP Lung Cancer Screening Guidelines
January 10, 2019
Filmed at the 2018 STS Annual Meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Douglas Wood of the University of Washington in Seattle moderates a debate on the criteria that should be used to select which patients should undergo lung cancer screening.

Paul Van Schil of Antwerp University Hospital in Belgium discusses surgical approaches for various stages of non-small cell lung cancer.
October 31, 2018
The authors present a video of a robotic assisted pulmonary segmentectomy of the anterior segment of the right upper lobe (S3) for a metastatic nodule.
October 24, 2018
This video demonstrates the surgical treatment of a 71-year-old patient with multifocal lung cancer who initially underwent a left VATS upper lobectomy, followed by a robotic completion pneumonectomy.
