Expert Consensus Statement on Optimal Approach to Lobectomy for Non–Small Cell Lung Cancer

Ng and colleagues evaluated 145 studies in order to provide evidence-based statements on the optimal approach for lobectomy for non–small cell lung cancer, comparing thoracotomy, multiport video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS), robotic VATS, and uniportal VATS.

Four-Arm Robotic Sleeve Right Upper Lobectomy

In this surgical video, Durand presents a four-arm robotic sleeve right upper lobectomy and node harvest. The patient was a 60-year old man who had been diagnosed with a proximal right upper lobe squamous cell carcinoma after exploration for hemoptysis. Additionally, the author highlights the differences between the technique shown in this video and other recently published techniques.

The Evolution of Robotic Thoracic Surgery

Melfi and colleagues present a keynote lecture outlining the evolution of robotic thoracic surgery. The robotic technique in thoracic surgery has progressively become widespread, particularly for the treatment of mediastinal and pulmonary lesions. The authors discuss the development of technology in the robotic system that has been associated with the improvement of intraoperative and postoperative results.
