Abstract

The gasless transaxillary robot-assisted endoscopic thyroid surgery is recently proposed and developed in South Corea and USA. We reported the perianaesthestic concerns for the seven first patients scheduled to undergo this innovative surgical technique in France. The anaesthetic considerations focused on the length of surgery according to the learning curve, the risk of the arm posture and the postoperative painful evaluation and relief.
