Thoracic surgery and Robots!

Continuing on our theme of robotic assisted thoracic surgery, here’s a selection of full-text case reports and published reports on thoracic surgery.  Some of these stories discuss the more technical aspects of this approach, such as optimal patient positioning, and equipment placement.

A couple case reports of pediatric surgery using robot-assisted techniques.

Robotic surgery for mediastinal tumor resection - another Japanese report of six cases.

Robotic assisted lung resection - an interesting italian/ american study looking at 38 cases (single surgeon experience) from 2001 – 2009.  Nicely illustrated.  It’s a fascinating study, so I’ve written to the lead author (and surgeon) for more information.

Robotic Surgery Training: the Japanese Pneumonectomy experience.

Thymectomy and the daVinci robot – nice photo showing post-operative incisions.
