Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital malformation and may cause recurrent infections and hemoptysis. Although video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is feasible, some drawbacks remain, mainly dealing the managing of anomalous vessels. We describe the use of a robotic system (da Vinci Robotic System, Surgical Intuitive, Mountain View, CA, USA) in the treatment of four consecutive cases of pulmonary sequestration.
