We are pleased to announce publication of the collaborative assessment OTCA14 “Robot-assisted surgery for thoracic and visceral surgery”.
This is the assessment of the relative effectiveness and safety of robot-assisted surgery for 13 different procedures within the thoracic and visceral surgery area. The assessment is based on evidence from RCTs or –in the absence of RCTs for specific surgical procedures– from prospective, controlled clinical trials.
