Initial Experience of Robotic Sleeve Resection for Lung Cancer Patients.

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to identify the technical aspects and short-term results of robotic sleeve resection for lung cancer patients.

METHODS: Twenty-one consecutive cases of robotic sleeve resection from September 2014 to September 2015 were reviewed.

RESULTS: There were 17 single sleeve resection (bronchial) and 4 double sleeve resection (bronchial and vascular) cases. Nineteen of 21 cases (90.5%) achieved R0 resection. The mean console time was 120.4 ± 37.3 minutes. The mean operation time was 158.4 ± 42.0 minutes. There was no massive bleeding (800 mL or more) during operation. The mean intraoperative blood loss was 157.1 ± 97.8 mL. One case (4.8%) was converted to thoracotomy owing to severe calcification of lymph node. There was no intraoperative death. The overall complication rate was 19.0%. The major complications were subcutaneous emphysema (14.4%), cardiac arrhythmia (9.6%), pneumonia (9.6%), pyothorax (9.6%), bronchial anastomosis bleeding (4.8%), bronchial anastomosis leakage (4.8%), and multiple organ failure (4.8%). The 30-day mortality rate was 4.8%. The mean postoperative length of stay was 10.7 ± 7.6 days.

CONCLUSIONS: Robotic sleeve resection is technically feasible and can be carried out with acceptable short-term results.
