Left Carotid to Subclavian Artery Bypass

Daniel Gwan-Nulla
This video demonstrates a left carotid to subclavian artery bypass. Due to increased use of aortic stent grafts that sometimes cover or compromise the orifice of the left subclavian artery, cardiothoracic surgeons need to be familiar with revascularization of the extremity.

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....

Sutureless Aortic Valves

Robotic S9-S10 Segmentectomy Assisted by Multimodal Reconstruction Imaging System

Zied Chaari, Jean-Marc Baste & Christophe Peillon
This presentation is about a robotic S9-S10 segmentectomy assisted by a multimodal reconstruction imaging system. In the literature, several series report experiences of robot-assisted segmentectomy for benign or malignant pathologies. However, they were either common to the basal segments interesting segments 7 to 10, or the segment of the Fowler (segment 6). In the series from Cerfolio and colleagues, basal segmentectomies were for the upper, basilar, or posterior segment. The case shown here is an...

Southampton Reviews in Cardiothoracic Surgery Chapter Three: Cardiac Anatomy

Abdelhadi Ismail, Sunil Ohri, Geoffrey Tsang, Szabolcs Miskolczi & Theodore Velissaris
Abdelhadi Ismail of the Southampton University Hospitals Trust in the UK presents an educational series on cardiac anatomy in which he discusses some of the fundamental concepts.The optimal way to memorize a topic is to first classify it, then understand it, then forget it. Once you forget and recall it, you will never forget it again. In this third chapter of the Southampton Reviews in Cardiothoracic Surgery, the authors again focus on the merits and...

VATS for Congenital Lobar Emphysema With Osseous Metaplasia

Saleh Abu Daff
This video demonstrates a video-assisted thoracoscopic resection of a congenital lobar emphysema in a young woman with spontaneous pneumothorax. Congenital lobar emphysema occurs when there is a developmental ball-valve obstruction in the bronchial tree. This is usually related to bronchial malformation and most commonly affects the left upper lobe.Small osseous formations were observed in the resected lobe. Pulmonary osseous metaplasia (OM) is a poorly understood phenomenon related to chronic inflammation and possibly related to fibroblast...

Cor Triatriatum Dexter

Aaron Abarbanell & Rachel Simon-Lee
This video depicts the repair of an extremely rare congenital heart defect known as cor triatriatum dexter. In this condition, the right valve of the sinus venosus fails to involute and effectively separates the smooth and trabeculated portions of the right atrium. The degree of separation (ie, right atrial septation) will determine if the patient is asymptomatic or has signs of right heart failure due to inflow obstruction to the right ventricle. The patient was...

Correcting a Rare Congenital Anomaly in an Adult: A Case Report

William J. Parker, John Duggan, Samuel Richey, Charles B. Huddleston & Junewai L. Reoma
ObjectivesAnomalous origin of the right coronary artery (RCA) from the pulmonary artery is an extremely rare condition with an uncertain natural history. Here, the authors present an otherwise healthy active duty service member who was found to have an anomalous RCA arising from the pulmonary artery as an incidental discovery during a workup for possible pulmonary embolus.MethodsThe authors describe the preoperative workup, which showed dilation of the coronary arteries and evidence of ischemia. The operative...

Robotic Sleeve Lobectomy of the Right Lower Lobe

Shruti Jayakumar, Marco Nardini & Joel Dunning
This is the case of 65-year-old male with a proven adenocarcinoma at the orifice of the apical segment of the right lower lobe. He underwent a robotic sleeve lobectomy with a station 7 lymphadenectomy. The right lower lobe artery and right lower lobe vein were divided using the Covidien Curved Tip Stapler with a leader catheter, which facilitated ease of stapling by the assistant. Initially, the right lower lobe bronchus was cut with scissors and...

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...

The Buffalo Trunk Technique for Aortic Arch Reconstruction

Mohamed Eldeiry, Edward J. Bergeron, Muhammad Aftab, Jay D. Pal, Joseph C. Cleveland, David A. Fullerton & Thomas B. Reece
ObjectivesThe frozen elephant trunk can facilitate the repair of arch and proximal descending aortic pathologies. Commercially available hybrid grafts may simplify this approach by allowing for a single suture line with the soft graft secured to the stent, potentially streamlining the distal anastomosis. However, this is a commodity not available at all institutions. The authors developed a system to streamline performance of the frozen elephant trunk that obviates the need for a hybrid graft and...

Robot-Assisted Left Upper Lobectomy After Immunotherapy

Alessandro Wasum Mariani & Ricardo Mingarini Terra
This video demonstrates a robot-assisted upper left lobectomy as surgical treatment for a patient with a lung adenocarcinoma that had been previously submitted to immunotherapy. It was performed with the da Vinci Si platform with a 3-arm technique plus a 10 mm assistant port. In the right arm, the authors used the Marlyland bipolar forceps and on the left arm the thoracic grasper forceps. The assistant helped on the lung exposition with a regular laparoscopic...
