Minimally invasive robotic-assisted excision of an aortopulmonary mediastinal paraganglioma.
Eur J Cardiothorac Surg
Aortopulmonary paragangliomas are rare, neural crest-derived tumours that arise in the aortopulmonary window and present a significant surgical challenge due to their proximity to major vessels. In the relatively few cases reported in the study, thoracotomy and video-assisted thorascopic surgery (VATS) approaches have been utilized for the treatment of such masses. In this report, we describe the application of a totally endoscopic robotic-assisted VATS approach for the excision of an aortopulmonary paraganglioma.
