The learning curve and the advantages of transitioning to robotic-assisted lobectomy by a surgeon who is proficient in thoracoscopic lobectomy is currently unknown. The cost of robotic lobectomy has been reported to be higher than thoracoscopic lobectomy and there is no significant decrease in hospital length of stay.

Robot technology is a revolutionary technique to overcome limitations of minimal invasive surgery. The proficiency level varies from study to study. We considered the first sleeve lobectomy as a be...
The aim of this study was to assess the postoperative outcomes of robotic-assisted lobectomy in obese patients to determine the impact of the robotic approach on a high-risk population who were candid...
Robotic-assisted surgery has become the first choice for several conditions since its introduction in clinical practice in 2000. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recently raised a wa...
Minimally invasive lobectomy is associated with decreased morbidity and length-of-stay. However, there have been few published analyses using recent, population-level data to compare clinical outcomes...
Robotic-assisted total hip arthroplasty (THA) has been shown to demonstrate a variety of clinical benefits for patients, including reductions in dislocation rates, decreased impingement, and improved ...
The main objective of this study is to compare perioperative outcomes for robotic-assisted lobectomy with those associated with VATS and open lobectomy for lung cancer
Robotic lobectomy has been shown, on the basis of non-randomized studies, to have superior outcomes to thoracotomy and Thoracoscopic lobectomy. Despite the potential benefits of robotic te...
The study was designed to compare the safety and effectiveness of vedio-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy with open lobectomy for patients with surgically resectable pathologic N2 non-small...
This study will involve a quantitative assessment of prospectively collected computed tomography, radiographic and patient outcomes data from multiple centers. Specifically looking at acet...
The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of assisted-VATS (video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery) sleeve lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer for non-small cell lung canc...
Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.
Therapy assisted by the use of a horse and/or its movement, including equine-assisted psychotherapy, horseback riding, and hippotherapy.
Phenotypic changes of EPITHELIAL CELLS to MESENCHYME type, which increase cell mobility critical in many developmental processes such as NEURAL TUBE development. NEOPLASM METASTASIS and DISEASE PROGRESSION may also induce this transition.
Health care provided during a transition to a different mode of care (e.g., TRANSITION TO ADULT CARE).
Computer-assisted study of methods for obtaining useful quantitative solutions to problems that have been expressed mathematically.
