Complex Pulmonary Segmentectomy - Left S9+10 with Lobar Split
2 weeks ago
Surgical video case: complex segmentectomy, left S9+10, showcasing the advantages of the (*brand hidden*) robotic platform. Bimanual bipolar energy dissection of lung tissue, vessel seal extend bipolar diathermy device, tremendous magnification and great 3D optics, Firefly mode, complete control of camera and retraction of the lung, virtually zero blood loss, etc, etc. The early splitting of the S6 from S9+10 is useful because this patient had a incomplete fissure and fairly distal bifurcation of the A9+10 artery from the common basal artery. Once the division of S6 lung parenchyma is performed the dissection of the basal segmental bronchovascular structures becomes much easier.
