Robot Assistant Extrapleural Pneumonectomy for Mesothelioma
Robotic Surgical systems by virtue of high definitions by virtue of high definition, three-dimensional visualization, and greater instrument maneuverability in a confined space, may enhance the pleurectomy phase of the extrapleural pneumonectomy procedure. We report the first cases where robotics was used for the pleurectomy phase of extrapleural pneumonectomy in patients with mesothelioma. Robotic assisted pleurectomy is associated with lower blood loss and greater tumor clearance. This procedure should be considered for the pleurectomy phase of extrapleural pneumonectomy.
