INSPIRE Trial Summary

This trial compared the use of a surgical navigation system with standard technique during chest wall resection and found that the use of the system resulted in a more precise margin.

Who is the study for?
The INSPIRE trial is for adults who need surgery to remove a lesion from their chest wall. They must be able to understand and agree to the study by signing consent forms. Pregnant individuals, those with conditions making surgery unsafe, or those with metal implants that could interfere with the navigation system are not eligible.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
Surgeons in this trial will use a surgical navigation system during chest wall resection procedures. The goal is to see if this technology helps them achieve more precise removal of lesions while avoiding unnecessary damage or additional surgeries.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves standard surgical procedures with an added navigation system, side effects may include typical post-surgical risks such as pain at the incision site, infection risk, and potential complications related to chest surgery.
