Standardized steps for robotic right upper lung lobectomy
Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery has been accepted as a safe and effective technique for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer. The robot-assisted technologies have been rapidly applied to general thoracic surgery and many studies have proven their efficacy.
This video reports the case of a 64-year-old patient complaining of cough and mild dyspnea secondary to a double nodule localized on the right upper lobe and which showed fixations on PET-scan. There was also a fixation of a hilar lymph node with a clinical T3N1 disease according to the TNM staging system. We report the 4 standardized operative steps and exposure required to make a complete robotic right upper lobectomy, along with trocars positioning, the different techniques for lymph node dissections, and postoperative outcomes.
