Lumbo-aortic lymphadenectomy: improving exposure with the T’lift™ device
Lymph node dissection in the lumbo-aortic area is a challenging procedure. The main concerns during surgery include the risk of major vascular injury and the potential lesion of other structures such as the ureter or the duodenum. A thorough surgical strategy and adequate exposure are mandatory to reduce the possibility of complications.
During this surgical demonstration, the most important aspects of the strategy are discussed. Special emphasis is put on exposure and the use of the T’lift™ device is shown. This simple technique allows for a fast and safe suspension of the peritoneum, improving the visualization of the operative field.
