Summary:

Although many surgeons are now performing Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) procedures, there is still a need for thoracic lobectomy education due to complications with VATS and the need to move to an open procedure.  Also, some surgeons are still performing the open lobectomy procedure. CSTs & CSFAs need continuing education hours in all different educational areas to increase their knowledge. 

Objectives:

The goal of this lobectomy continuing education program is to provide surgical technologists with information about thoracic lobectomy, including when the procedure is performed and its potential complications. After completing this activity, the surgical technologist will be able to:
  • Identify which patients are candidates for a thoracic lobectomy procedure
  • Describe the procedural sequence, instruments, equipment and positions required for the performance of a thoracic lobectomy
  • Identify the potential complications that can be encountered during and after the performance of a thoracic lobectomy
