导语:2017年3月4日,为期三天的第四届国际单孔胸腔镜手术教育课程(The 4th International Uniportal VATS Course-Live Surgery and Wetlab)终于在德国柏林圆满落幕。期间,AME编辑采访到了美国匹兹堡Esophageal and Lung Institute 主任Rodney Landreneau教授。

Rodney Landreneau教授在University of Pittsburgh Medical Center做了世界第一例微创肺切除术(minimally invasive lung resection),在1990s早期曾是微创胸外科领域的领军人物。

据其讲述,在1990s早期电视辅助胸腔镜手术(VATS)没有专用的手术器械,他们缺乏足够的尝试、经验和知识,甚至遭同行的怀疑;而今天,有了3D影像技术,精细的手术器械,电视辅助胸腔镜手术(VATS)这一路发展过来实属不易。对此,Rodney Landreneau教授总结道,我们应该客观地审视那些合理合法的新技术的价值,甚至是去接受它们。

当被问及微创胸外科继VATS之后的新一轮革新会是什么,Rodney Landreneau教授坚定地说道,“Human Surgeons will never be out!”

When you look back to your career as a thoracic surgeon and director of department, what is the thing that has made you proudest?
