Single-port thoracoscopic lung wedge resection using the Endo GIA Radial Reload

Abstract

The GIA Radial Reload is a surgical stapler with a curved cut line that is perpendicular to the direction of instrument insertion. We used the GIA Radial Reload in three cases of single-port thoracoscopic lung wedge resection. The operations were performed through a 3.0–4.5-cm incision. For the first stapler, we selected the GIA Radial Reload. The orientation of this device’s cut line enabled us to easily cut the lung behind the lesion during single-port thoracoscopic surgery.
