REVIEW
Ingrid M Balsa
Significant advances in veterinary minimally invasive surgeries and procedures have occurred in the past 10 years. These advances have been allowed due to continual research into optimizing working space through one-lung ventilation techniques and carbon dioxide insufflation. Additionally, minimally invasive surgery enthusiasts have joined forces with interventionalists and, in many cases, physicians to push the boundaries, minimize pain, suffering, and time away from owners with advances in a variety of procedures...

Nicole J Buote
This article details the rise of surgical robots in the human surgical sphere as well as their use in veterinary medicine. Sections will describe in detail the equipment required for these procedures and the advantages and disadvantages of their use. Specific attention is given to the articulated instrumentation, which affords psychomotor benefits not only for surgical precision but also for surgeon ergonomics. A discussion of the possible indications and current use of robotics in veterinary medicine and the challenges to integrating robotics is also provided...

#3
REVIEW
Heidi Phillips
This article discusses the laser-assisted turbinectomy (LATE) procedure and indications for its performance in dogs suffering from brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome (BOAS). The article summarizes landmark works that reported, for the first time, endoscopic-assisted identification and treatment of structures within the brachycephalic nose that contribute to intranasal obstruction and resistance to breathing, specifically hypertrophic and aberrant nasal turbinates. Brachycephaly is discussed in the context of how these aberrations form and how definitive treatments such as LATE and adjunctive treatments such as ala vestibuloplasty, folded flap palatoplasty, and others may ameliorate the negative effects and improve patient outcomes associated with aberrant intranasal conchal configurations...

REVIEW
William Hawker, Ameet Singh
Idiopathic chylothorax is a challenging clinical condition historically associated with poor resolution rates following surgical intervention. Recent advances in imaging and surgical techniques have revolutionized the treatment of this disease process. Computed tomographic lymphangiography has facilitated improved surgical planning and postoperative assessment, while intraoperative use of near-infrared fluorescence imaging aids in highly accurate intraoperative thoracic duct identification. Utilizing these advancements, minimally invasive surgical techniques have been successfully developed and have been associated with considerable improvements in surgical outcomes...

REVIEW
Andi Flory, Heather Wilson-Robles
The past decade has seen incredible advances in blood-based cancer detection in people and in dogs - yet this represents only a glimpse of the benefits these tests can provide to patients. The clinical uses of this technology range from screening asymptomatic individuals for early detection to use as an aid in diagnosis when cancer is suspected, to cancer monitoring both during and after treatment. This article summarizes the benefits of early cancer detection and examines use cases and methods of blood-based cancer detection in dogs, including quantitative, qualitative, and alternative approaches...

Erin A Gibson
Veterinary minimally invasive surgery continues to grow as a specialty. With increasing experience in this field, comes improved accessibility as well as progressive complexity of procedures performed. Advancement in technology has been both a response to the growth and a necessary driver of continued refinement of this field. Innovative research leading to advancements in surgical equipment has led to the development of novel image acquisition platforms, cannulas, smoke evacuation systems, antifog devices, instrumentation, and ligating/hemostatic devices...

REVIEW
Chris Thomson
Minimally invasive endoscopic surgery is growing in veterinary medicine, in large part, due to the advantages associated with reduced pain, potential for decreased complications, and increased visualization of structures through magnification and illumination. With advancing technologies, we can now improve upon natural "white light" endoscopy with fluorescence-guided imaging. Near-infrared (NIR) cameras allow for real-time, high-definition visualization of vessels, anatomic structures, and perfusion. New uses of NIR technologies during laparoscopy are continuing to grow for vascular, lymphatic, and oncologic-related techniques...

REVIEW
Chris Thomson
Intraoperative near-infrared fluorescence imaging allows for real time, noninvasive visualization of anatomic structures (blood vessels, lymphatic vessels) or diseased states (cancer, inflammation). This technique is easily adapted to thoracoscopy and has allowed for improved detection of lung tumors and other various cancers, thoracic lymphatics, and cardiothoracic vasculature.

#10
REVIEW
Sarah Marvel, Eric Monnet
Hiatal hernias result from a widening of the esophageal hiatus that leads to the displacement of the lower esophageal sphincter and stomach into the thoracic cavity. Clinical signs of regurgitation, gastroesophageal reflux, and esophagitis are managed medically, but surgery is considered in those that fail to respond to medical management. Surgical treatment of hiatal hernia can be performed laparoscopically. Treatment involves plication of the esophageal hiatus, as well as a pexy of the esophagus to the diaphragm and a left sided gastropexy...

JOURNAL ARTICLE
Dave Nicol
Veterinary practice ownership has long been a financially rewarding option. High time it was an emotionally rewarding one for all concerned, too. This is the gift that strong leaders bestow on those lucky enough to work on their team. If more of us developed these skills, the course of veterinary medicine would change inevitably for the good.

New knowledge and data can influence the treatment options of dogs and cats affected by neoplasms. Partial limb amputation with the use of a prosthesis is possible in dogs. Newer studies attempt to define better and understand the complications and limb function associated with this approach. Limb sparing is an alternative to amputation, and three-dimensional printing allows the manufacturing of personalized endoprostheses. Finally, the recommended approach for the excision of cutaneous mast cell tumors (MCTs) is with proportional margins...

Precision medicine focuses on the clinical management of the individual patient, not on population-based findings. Successes from human precision medicine inform veterinary oncology. Early evidence of success for canines shows how precision medicine can be integrated into practice. Decreasing genomic profiling costs will allow increased utilization and subsequent improvement of knowledge base from which to make better informed decisions. Utility of precision medicine in canine oncology will only increase for improved cancer characterization, enhanced therapy selection, and overall more successful management of canine cancer...

REVIEW
Douglas H Thamm
Lymphoma is a common disease in companion animals. While conventional chemotherapy has the potential to induce remission and prolong life, relapse is common and novel treatments are needed to improve outcome. This review discusses recent modifications/adjustments to conventional standard of care therapy for canine and feline lymphoma, options for treatment or relapsed/refractory disease, and cutting-edge immunotherapy and small molecule-based approaches that are in varying stages of regulatory approval.

William T N Culp
Interventional oncology (IO) is a rapidly growing field in veterinary medicine and has been accepted as a fourth pillar of treatment of neoplastic disease with other modalities including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. The major categories of IO therapies in companion animals are focused on the use of locoregional therapies and stenting of malignant obstructions. Although significant assessment of veterinary IO techniques is still necessary, early evaluation of these varying techniques is demonstrating promising results...
