Abstract

The diagnosis and management of mediastinal masses frequently necessitates biopsy and surgical resection. The use of videothorascopic techniques has broadened the surgeon's ability to evaluate and treat such tumors using a minimally invasive approach. We describe herein the use of the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System for evaluating a mediastinal mass in a young woman.
