INTRODUCTION: Surgical resection is gold standard for early stage lung cancer and early stage esophageal cancer.
CASE PRESENTATION: A 72-year-old man was diagnosed with synchronous TTF1-positive right lower lobe (RLL) adenocarcinoma and TTF1-negative T3N1 gastroesophageal adenocarcinoma. After neoadjuvant chemoradiation for esophageal cancer, he consented to concurrent robotic-assisted Ivor-Lewis esophagectomy and robotic-assisted RLLobectomy. Gastric mobilization, celiac and paraaortic lymphadenectomy, pyloric botulinum injection, and feeding jejunostomy were performed via hand-assisted laparoscopy in supine position. Robotic-assisted video-thoracoscopic RLLobectomy, with mediastinal lymph node dissection (MSLND), was then performed in left lateral decubitus with 3 thoracoscopy ports, including a 4-cm camera port along the 6th intercostal space (ICS) at the anterior axillary line, which doubled as the assistant’s access port, and two 1-cm instrument ports along the 3rd ICS at the anterior axillary line and along the 9th ICS at the posterior axillary line. Robotic-assisted right transthoracic esophagogastrectomy and primary reanastomosis (with circular endostapler and orally-introduced anvil) were performed through the same thoracoscopy ports. Total operative (skin-to-skin) time was 517min, with RLLobectomy and MSLND taking 131min. Total intraoperative estimated blood loss was 100mL. Esophagram on postoperative day (POD)#4 revealed no anastomotic leak, and chest tube was removed on POD#6, but dysphagia delayed oral intake until POD#8, with nutrition via jejunostomy. Pseudomonas and E. coli jejunostomy site infection required antibiotics, but he was discharged home on POD#12 tolerating post-esophagectomy diet. Pathology revealed pT2N0M0 lung adenocarcinoma and no residual esophageal cancer. He was readmitted on POD#16 with aspiration pneumonia, contained anastomotic leak, and grade 1/2 sacral decubitus (treated with IV antibiotics, NPO with nutrition via jejunostomy, and sacral wound care) and discharged to skilled-nursing facility on hospital day#19. At 5-month follow-up, he was tolerating oral diet but had gastritis and small gastric ulcer, resolved with sucralfate by 8-month and 11-month follow-up.
DISCUSSION: Concurrent robotic-assisted RLLobectomy and Ivor-Lewis esophagogastrectomy was associated with postoperative complications related to feeding and nutritional intake.
CONCLUSIONS: We successfully performed the first reported concurrent robotic-assisted pulmonary lobectomy and robotic-assisted right transthoracic esophagogastrectomy.
