Daryl Phillip Pearlstein
A drawback of robotic lobectomy is the inability of the operating surgeon to perform stapler division of the pulmonary vessels and bronchi. With the advent of the robotic stapler, the surgeon is able to control this instrument from the console. The robotic stapler presents certain challenges. This article outlines techniques to use the robotic stapler for the safe and predictable performance of lobectomies.

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary segmentectomy with radical lymphadenopathy has been considered effective to manage small primary lung cancers [1, 2]. This procedure provides the advantages of minimal invasive surgery and is reported sufficient for safe margin. However, segmentectomy is more difficult to be performed than lobectomy because intersegmental plane cannot be detected easily. Several methods have been reported for identifying the actual intersegmental plane [3-7], but the sensitivity of these methods is limited to the lung conditions like patients with emphysematous lung and needed skilled surgeon to perform...

Aspergilloma of the lung eroding into the airway may lead to perioperative endobronchial spillage and contamination of the normal lung. Our aim in this group of patients who are undergoing robotic- or video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy is to protect the contralateral lung and, if possible, uninvolved lobes of ipsilateral lung. Double-lumen endobronchial tubes do provide lung protection to the contralateral lung intraoperatively, but there is no protection to the ipsilateral lung lobes not involved by the disease process...

BACKGROUND: Lobectomy is standard treatment for early-stage lung cancer, but sublobar resection remains debated. We compared outcomes after robotic-assisted video-assisted thoracoscopic (R-VATS) segmentectomy vs lobectomy. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed data from 251 consecutive patients who underwent R-VATS lobectomy (n = 208) or segmentectomy (n = 43) by a single surgeon over 36 months. Pulmonary function tests and perioperative outcomes were compared using Chi-squared test, unpaired Student t test, or Kruskal-Wallis test, with significance at P ≤ ...

The robotic surgical system is the result of a long process of development aimed at producing a natural extension of the surgeon's eyes and hands via the intermediation of a computer. In this way, the ease of movement obtained with open surgery is summated with the advantages of the minimally invasive technique. Since 2000, when the first robotic system for surgery was introduced, robot-assisted thoracic surgery (RATS) has been adopted by an increasing number of centres around the world, and today is used in ∼10% of lobectomies in the US...

BACKGROUND: We investigated whether robotic-assisted surgery improves mediastinal lymph node dissection (MLND). METHODS: We analyzed patients (pts) who underwent robotic-assisted video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (R-VATS) lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) over 36 months. Perioperative outcomes, tumor histology, numbers, locations, and status of all lymph nodes (LNs), and TNM (tumor, nodal, and metastasis) stage changes were analyzed. RESULTS: One hundred fifty-nine pts had mean tumor size 3...

BACKGROUND: Robotic facelift thyroidectomy (RFT) was developed as a new surgical approach to the thyroid gland using a remote incision site. Early favorable results led to this confirmatory multi-institutional experience. METHODS: Prospectively collected data on consecutive patients undergoing RFT in five North American academic endocrine surgical practices were compiled. Surgical indications, operative times, final pathology, nodule size, complications, and postoperative management (drain use and length of hospital stay) were evaluated...

Recent advances in the surgical treatment of early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) have focused heavily on making procedures less invasive, less radical, and better tolerated. Advances in accuracy and increased utilization of cross-sectional imaging allows for diagnosis of smaller and more indolent tumors and preinvasive lesions. Similar to advanced disease, early-stage treatment is now being tailored to individual patients and their tumors. Sublobar resections are gaining acceptance as an oncologically equivalent approach to lobectomy in well-selected stage I patients...

BACKGROUND: The positive impact of hospital operative volume on outcomes following video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery has been established. The goal of this study was to determine whether or not this volume-outcome relationship translates to robotic-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (RobATS) lobectomy. METHODS: Patients who underwent RobATS lobectomy were identified between 2008 and 2013 in the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project National Inpatient Sample (HCUP-NIS) database...

BACKGROUND: Mediastinal involvement in resected non-small-cell lung cancer mandates adjuvant therapy and affects survival. This study investigated lymph node dissection efficacy, lymph node metastasis detection, and survival after robotic-assisted lobectomy for non-small-cell lung cancer. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed patients who underwent robotic-assisted lobectomy for non-small-cell lung cancer. Survival was assessed through chart reviews, Social Security Death Registry, and national obituary searches...

BACKGROUND: Induction therapy has been shown to benefit patients with resectable stage-2 or stage-3 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We aimed to determine if induction chemotherapy (CTx) with or without radiation therapy (± RT) for NSCLC with clinical lymph node (LN) involvement (cN1 or cN2) affects LN dissection or perioperative outcomes during robotic-assisted video thoracoscopic (RAVTS) lobectomy. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed patients who underwent RAVTS lobectomy for NSCLC over 45 months...

BACKGROUND: In this study, we sought to investigate the effect of post-operative atrial fibrillation (POAF) after robotic-assisted video-thoracoscopic pulmonary lobectomy on comorbid postoperative complications, chest tube duration, and hospital length of stay (LOS). METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed prospectively collected data from 208 consecutive patients who underwent robotic-assisted pulmonary lobectomy by one surgeon for known or suspected lung cancer. Postoperatively, 39 (18...

Background To evaluate pulmonary function, pain, and quality of life at midterm after robotic lobectomy performed in a single institution. Methods Sixty-five consecutive patients underwent robotic thoracic surgery over 32 months using a complete four-arm portal technique. Sixty-one patients underwent lobectomies predominantly for stage I non-small cell lung cancer. Pulmonary function tests were repeated at midterm follow-up. Pain and quality of life were evaluated during the follow-up on a subgroup of 39 patients, excluding the learning period...

Anomalies in pulmonary vasculature are rare; however, the knowledge of the anomal and potential physiological implications for a patient undergoing a thoracic surgery must be understood. We report a case of a 64-year-old female who had a robotic left upper lobectomy for an incidental pulmonary nodule and was found to have a partial anomalous pulmonary vein. We discuss the incidence of pulmonary vein anomalies, associated conditions, and surgical management in patients requiring thoracic surgery.
