This blog has been born in order to share information about one of my professional passion: Thoracic Surgery, mainly focused on minimally invasive surgery (MIS).
All surgeons notice that, as we evolve and improve in our surgical practice, we develop tricks and keypoints to make our procedures safer and give the best to our patients.
Most of the evidence we report is focused on outcomes in terms of morbidity, mortality and oncological results.
Last years, technological development and social media have brought a revolution in the way clinicians and surgeons share they knowledge and experience.
Surgical videos (edited/non edited), live streaming surgeries, practical VATS courses and wetlabs, and online consults to experts have grown exponentially, and now surgeons talk not only about succesful procedures but also about technical mistakes and intraoperative complications, so as they serve as a guidance for others.
This initiative tries to redirect my previous activity through social professional media, to a tool open to anyone who dedicates to Thoracic Surgery. There, I want to show the systematic I use in my procedures, the key points I find essential to highlight, and the tricks I've developed to make my procedures safer and faster.
Never want to talk dogmatically, never be an expert, just want to share surgical experience to anyone who trusts and gets interested.
Our current contraindications will be overthrown soon; what we consider as a surgical true now will probably fade off in the future.
