Abstract

We are going to share the experience of robotic surgery for mediastinal mass. A 40-year-old patient underwent robotic-assisted thoracic surgery for a posterior superior mediastinal mass. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 2 without any perioperative complications. The pathological diagnosis was mediastinal neurofibroma. Our result showed the robotic thoracic surgery of the posterior superior mediastinal mass was efficient and reliable.
