This video shows a case of a large post-intubation tracheal laceration repair performed by robotic assisted thoracoscopic surgery with a veno-venous ECMO support. It demonstrates the enormous potential of these two technological tools when applied together for selected complex cases of tracheal diseases.

The Role of Virtual-Assisted Lung Mapping 2.0 Combining Microcoils and Dye Marks in Deep Lung Resection
June 16, 2022
A new study recently published in JTCVS found that virtual-assisted lung mapping 2.0—a novel preoperative bronchoscopic lung mapping technique—can facilitate successful resections for deep pulmonary nodules, overcoming the limitations of conventional virtual-assisted lung mapping.

Stanifer and colleagues present a contemporary analysis of tracheal surgery in the US with the goal of identifying predictors of major morbidity and mortality. Tracheal resections reported in The Society of Thoracic Surgeons General Thoracic Surgery Database between 2002 and 2016 were included in this analysis.
