Robotic Mediastinal Surgery

Posted On 2018-11-20 10:44:42

Since the introduction of the first robotic surgical systems in the late 90’s, it has been clear that the technical advantages of this novel approach were maximized when operating in a narrow to reach and delicate region as the mediastinum. This focused issue on Robotic Mediastinal Surgery, guest edited by Dr. Giuseppe Marulli, aims to provide comprehensive perspectives and surgical techniques in the field of robotic mediastinal surgery to all surgeons around the world, which we hope will also be beneficial to the growth of young surgeons.
