Robotic Management of Pulmonary Sequestration

Luis F. Alberton & Kimberly Costas
Pulmonary sequestration is a rare condition. The blood supply originates from systemic circulation and can consist of small fragile vessels. Injury to these vessels can be challenging to control during minimally invasive approaches and should be avoided at all costs.In this video, the authors demonstrate a few advantages of using robotic surgery in selected cases such as the procedure shown. These advantages include better visualization with depth perception (3D), easier maneuverability of instruments, and the...

Minimally Invasive Valve Sparing Aortic Root Replacement in a Patient With Marfan Syndrome

Oleg Orlov, Vishal Shah, Matthew Thomas & Konstadinos Plestis
Minimally invasive valve sparing aortic root replacement in a patient with Marfan syndrome is feasible and provides an excellent outcome in a young patient.Preoperative computed tomography of the chest showed an aortic root dilatation at the sinuses of Valsalva, which measured 5.5 cm. Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) demonstrated a trileaflet aortic valve with moderate aortic valve insufficiency. A 6 cm upper partial sternotomy incision extending to the right fourth intercostal space was performed. The aorta was...

Hybrid Uniportal VATS Technique for Left Upper Lobectomy With Chest Wall Resection and Reconstruction

Firas Abu Akar, Helmi Tamimi, Hassan Al-Khatieb, Bisanne Shaqqura, Nizar Hijjeh & Tammah Safadi
A 60-year-old patient was diagnosed with a T3N0M0 squamous cell carcinoma. A multidisciplinary tumor board decided to perform a hybrid procedure of left upper lobectomy with resection of three involved ribs. The course of the surgery was uneventful, and the patient was discharged home on postoperative day five.

Open Surgical Repair for the Removal of an Atrial Septal Amplatzer™ Device Eroding the Aortic Root

Joseph S. Coselli, Scott A. LeMaire, Ourania Preventza, Kim I. De La Cruz, Cristian Rosu, Gregory Pattakos & Scott Weldon
ObjectivesThe Amplatzer™ Septal Occluder is a minimally invasive device used to treat atrial septal defects (ASD). Despite the low associated complication rates, the Amplatzer™ device has, on rare occasions, been found to erode surrounding structures. The authors describe a case in which a patient presented with an aortic root fistula and underwent open surgical repair to remove an Amplatzer™ device that had been percutaneously inserted nine years earlier to repair an ostium secundum ASD.MethodsA 33-year-old...

Robotic Right Upper Lobectomy for Stage IIIA-pN2 Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer After Induction Chemotherapy

Monica Casiraghi, Alessio Mariolo & Lorenzo Spaggiari
This video showed a robotic right upper lobectomy for stage IIIA-pN2 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) following induction chemotherapy. The patient underwent three cycles of cisplatinum-based induction chemotherapy, and then she was enrolled in the authors’ ongoing prospective study to assess the safety and effectiveness of the robotic approach in patients with NSCLC, stage IIIA-pN2. Thanks to an excellent robotic view, it was possible to perform a radical and oncologically adequate hilar and mediastinal lymphadenectomy.

Three-Minute Review: Essentials of Cardiopulmonary Bypass

Abdelhadi Ismail, Sunil Ohri & Szabolcs Miskolczi
The aim of this Three-Minute Review is to enable junior doctors to study and memorize topics in cardiac surgery in a simplified manner based on the rationale of things rather than rote memorization. In this publication, the authors set a mind map of how to study cardiopulmonary bypass. They simplify the major criteria, processes, and components in a rational manner, which helps one recall it easily.

Transmanubrial Approach for Salvage Surgery: Resection of a Single Persistent Subclavicular Breast Cancer Recurrence After Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy

Alessio Vincenzo Mariolo & Spaggiari Lorenzo
IntroductionBreast cancer can sporadically relapse in the subclavicular region, localizing in the lymph nodes around the axillary blood vessels of the axillary apex and often invading the neurovascular bundle and pectoralis muscles. In patients with failed multimodal treatment, or in those who develop an isolated recurrence, surgical resection may be useful to remove all macroscopically evident diseases. However, the procedure can be technically demanding due to vascular involvement, which could be further complicated by alterations...

Robotic-Assisted Left Upper Lobe Anterior (S3) Segmentectomy

David Rice
Sublobar resection of small (<2 cm) well-differentiated lung cancers is appropriate, especially in elderly patients, and it preserves useful lung parenchyma, thereby maximizing postoperative lung function [1]. Though minimally invasive anatomic segmental lung resection by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery is relatively straightforward for resection of the lingular (S4+5), trisegment (S1+2+3), superior (S6), and basilar (S7+8+10) segments, resection of individual segments such as the anterior segment (S3) is rarely performed due to the complexity of the procedure....

Right Main Bronchus Sleeve Resection

Marco Nardini, Joel Dunning, Marcello Migliore & Robert J. Cerfolio
Introduction
Carcinoid is a rare lung cancer that originates from the neuroendocrine cells of the airways. Pulmonary parenchyma sparing procedures should be attempted whenever feasible. Bronchoplasty and sleeve resection are technically challenging, and a minimally invasive approach has been attempted in only a few dedicated centers.
Video Description
Professor Cerfolio demonstrates the adoption of a four-arm robotic technique to resect a carcinoid tumor, which originated from the right main bronchus. The ports' positions are shown. The bronchus is...

Robotic Anterior Basilar Segmentectomy

Bernard J. Park
Robotic technology is being increasingly utilized for the performance of anatomic pulmonary resection. An excellent example of the technical advantages of the robotic platform over conventional minimally invasive video-assisted thoracoscopic techniques is in the execution of more complex resections. One such type of procedure is the single anatomic segmentectomy, particularly of the basilar segments. In this video, a single anterior basilar segmentectomy of the left lower lobe is demonstrated.
