Preclinical, cadaveric study of the application of da Vinci single port system in thoracic surgery

Seong Yong Park, Hubert Stein, Seung Young Heo


Conventional robotic thoracic surgery has been performed with multiple robotic arms through 4 or more ports, and robotic single-site approaches have also been attempted through enlarged single incisions. The authors previously reported our experiences with robotic single-site thoracic surgery for mediastinal mass excision (1).
