A background in minimally invasive colorectal surgery (MICS) has been thought to be essential prior to robotic-assisted colorectal surgery (RACS). Our aim was to determine whether MICS is essential prior to starting RACS training based on results from our initial experience with RACS. Two surgeons from our centre received robotic training through the European Academy of Robotic Colorectal Surgery (EARCS). One surgeon had no prior formal MICS training. We reviewed the first 30 consecutive robotic colorectal procedures from a prospectively maintained database between November 2014 and January 2016 at our institution...

Laparoscopic TAPP inguinal hernia repair is an established alternative to open hernia repair, which offers equivalent outcomes with less postoperative pain and faster recovery. Unfortunately, it remains technically challenging, requiring advanced laparoscopic skills which have limited its popularity among surgeons. The robotic platform has the potential to overcome these challenges. The objective of this study was to examine the long-term quality of life and outcomes following robotic assisted TAPP inguinal hernia repair, since these data have not been reported up to now...

Image-guided approaches to spinal instrumentation and interbody fusion have been widely popularized in the last decade [1-5]. Navigated pedicle screws are significantly less likely to breach [2, 3, 5, 6]. Navigation otherwise remains a point reference tool because the projection is off-axis to the surgeon's inline loupe or microscope view. The Synaptive robotic brightmatter drive videoexoscope monitor system represents a new paradigm for off-axis high-definition (HD) surgical visualization. It has many advantages over the traditional microscope and loupes, which have already been demonstrated in a cadaveric study [7]...

Robotic upper urinary tract reconstruction (UUTR) has been widely utilized for surgical management of congenital obstruction. To further reduce morbidity and simplify postoperative care, outpatient robotic pyeloplasty (RP) and robotic ureteroureterostomy (RUU) were performed without ureteral stents, drains, or urethral catheters. The aim of the study was to assess the safety of performing tubeless robotic UUTR as an outpatient procedure. A retrospective review was performed for patients who underwent outpatient tubeless RP and RUU between July 2015 and January 2017...

New techniques in minimally invasive and robotic surgical platforms require staged curricula to insure proficiency. Scant literature exists as to how much simulation should play a role in training those who have skills in advanced surgical technology. The abilities of novel users may help discriminate if surgically experienced users should start at a higher simulation level or if the tasks are too rudimentary. The study's purpose is to explore the ability of General Surgery residents to gain proficiency on the dVSS as compared to novel users...

The incidence of cervical insufficiency is 0.1-1% of all pregnancies and 8% of second trimester losses. After failed vaginal cerclages or in patients with amputated or congenitally abnormal cervices, transabdominal cerclages may be performed. Recent advances allow for use of the da Vinci robot to perform transabdominal cerclages. This case series presents three cases of robotically placed cerclages, performed prior to pregnancy. All patients had experienced prior second trimester losses. Two of the three had previously failed vaginal cerclage placement...
