Dr. Diego Gonzalez-Rivas, a pioneer in uniportal surgery, has posted a new video on YouTube featuring Scanlan instruments. In his video, a left upper lobectomy is performed by single-port VATS in a non-intubated patient. The surgery was performed with the spontaneous ventilation of the patient. This video highlights the Scanlan VATS Node Grasper, Scanlan Curved Suction and the Gonzalez-Rivas Dissector.
The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was discharged on the second postoperative day with excellent recovery.
