Chinese Abstract

過去十年來有很多學者描述了用胸腔內視鏡手術切除縱膈腔腫瘤的報告。最近引進的機器手臂系統變革了內視鏡手術。這些系統可以讓外科醫師執行複雜的胸腔內視鏡手術。它同時提供了讓手術安全所需要的精細度與靈巧度。過去發表過有關機器手臂輔助性胸腔內視鏡手術的病例並不多,特別是上縱膈腔的腫瘤。這裡我們首先介紹了一個四十四歲無症狀的女性患者上縱膈腔神經源性腫瘤,成功地用機器手臂輔助性胸腔內視鏡手術切除腫瘤。術後並無併發症。對於治療縱膈腔腫瘤的病人,機器手臂輔助性胸腔鏡手術或許是一個有效率的另類手術方式。

English Abstract

Although a thoracoscopic approach has been used for thoracic neurogenic tumors for several decades, it is the recent introduction of robotic systems that has revolutionized videoscopic surgery by allowing surgeons to perform complex thoracoscopic procedures safely. However, there have been few reports describing robot-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, especially for tumors of the apical thorax. Herein we present our experience with successful robot-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for a 44-year-old woman with a superior mediastinal neurogenic tumor that was discovered during workup for a chronic dry cough of about one month's duration. No obvious complication was noted after the procedure, and recovery was uneventful. Robot-assisted thoracoscopic surgery may be an effective alternative in treating selected patients with mediastinal tumors.
