New stapling devices in robotic surgery
Minimally invasive thoracic surgery is rapidly diffusing worldwide. Robotic anatomic pulmonary resection is gaining popularity and acceptance in the thoracic community for the reported feasibility, safety, and good outcomes. The last available robotic system, da Vinci Xi System, added new technical improvements on robotic device allowing best performances in robotic lung resection. We report our initial experience in the use of EndoWrist Stapler during robotic anatomic surgery for lung cancer.
