A novel narrow profile articulating powered vascular stapler provides superior access and haemostasis equivalent to conventional devices

The new ECHELON FLEX™ PVS provides haemostasis equivalent to six-row staplers. With a smaller anvil, narrower shaft and wider angle of articulation, the PVS demonstrated improved access capability for pulmonary vessel procedures.

Comparing robot-assisted thoracic surgical lobectomy with conventional video-assisted thoracic surgical lobectomy and wedge resection: results from a multihospital database (Premier)

Video-assisted thoracic surgical (VATS) lobectomies and wedge resections result in less morbidity and shorter length of stay than resections via thoracotomy. The impact of robot-assisted thoracic surgical (RATS) lobectomy on clinical and economic outcomes has not been examined. This study compared hospital costs and clinical outcomes for VATS lobectomies and wedge resections versus RATS.

Surgeons' volume-outcome relationship for lobectomies and wedge resections for cancer using video-assisted thoracoscopic techniques

This study examined the effect of surgeons' volume on outcomes in lung surgery: lobectomies and wedge resections. Additionally, the effect of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) on cost, utilization, and adverse events was analyzed. The Premier Hospital Database was the data source for this analysis. Eligible patients were those of any age undergoing lobectomy or wedge resection using VATS for cancer treatment.

Video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy is less costly and morbid than open lobectomy: a retrospective multiinstitutional database analysis

The Premier Perspective Database (Premier Inc, Charlotte, NC) was used to compare hospital costs and perioperative outcomes for video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) and open lobectomy procedures in the United States.

In-hospital clinical and economic consequences of pulmonary wedge resections for cancer using video-assisted thoracoscopic techniques vs. traditional open resections: a retrospective database analysis

The objective of this study was to compare the safety, use, and cost profiles of open thoracotomy vs video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for wedge resection in lung cancer performed by thoracic surgeons in the United States.
