Left Lung Apex Lesion
As the robot advanced the instrument, the lesion was displaced behind the rib due to respiratory movement. The robot was able to compensate with a non-linear trajectory to successfully reach the lesion with 10-minute skin-to-target time.
Lesion was at the apex of the left lung between 1st and 2nd ribs. The angle needed to access the lesion in its current location led to a small intercostal access space.
Respiratory movement led to multiple trajectory updates during the procedure, with the lesion ultimately shifting behind a rib.
The XACT ACE® Robotic System utilized non-linear steering to compensate for the movement and reached the target.
