Enrique Cadena, Alfredo Romero-Rojas, Ricardo Guerra, Carlos Pérez-Mitchell
Hypopharyngeal cysts are very uncommon pathology. They are presented in adult people over 60 years. Although oncocytic cysts are benign tumors, an incomplete resection causes recurrence. The symptoms are not specific, but the more frequent are dyspnea and foreign body sensation upon swallowing. Diagnosis usually is under general anesthesia during intubation. A flexible fiberoptic laryngoscopy could be insufficient; the trumpet maneuver during this examination can reveled occult cysts. To perform a total resection, the surgeon must have a complete exposition of the operative field...

James Wei Tatt Toh, Seon-Hahn Kim
We have previously reported our technique of single-docking totally robotic dissection for rectal cancer surgery using the Da Vinci(®) Si Surgical System in 2009. However, we have since optimised our port placement for the Si system and have developed a novel configuration of port placement and docking for the Da Vinci(®) Xi Surgical System. We have performed over 700 cases using this technique with the Si system and have used our Xi technique since 2016 for totally robotic dissection for rectal cancer. We have kept the configuration of port placements for both the Xi and Si system as similar as possible, with the priorities to avoid arm collisions as well as to provide a workable port configuration of two left-handed instruments and one right-handed instrument...

Calyceal diverticula in children are rare and 20% eventually become symptomatic. Following the use of laparoscopic or endoscopic treatments, 85% of children report symptomatic relief. However, complete radiological resolution is seen only in three-fourths of the laparoscopic group and a quarter of those treated via endoscopy. Diathermy ablation of the lining and/or prolonged double J stenting has not altered this outcome. The robotic approach is superior to the other two techniques as the leak can be clearly identified and securely suture ligated...

Techniques for robotic resection of the right colon have not been extensively published or adopted. We report our initial experience of robotic right colectomy with intracorporeal anastomosis and specimen extraction through a Pfannenstiel incision retrospectively. Twenty-one consecutive patients with a right colon cancer (n = 18) or polyp too large to remove endoscopically (n = 3) were treated at Mayo Clinic Rochester, Minnesota. Main outcomes measured were estimated blood loss, operative time, conversion rate, return of gastrointestinal function, length of stay, overall and severe complications, discharge status, and pathology...

The da Vinci Xi surgical system was released with several upgrades and modifications compared to the previous robotic generations to facilitate minimal invasive surgery. Herein, we present our preliminary experience of robotic laparoendoscopic single-site gynecologic surgery performed for benign indications with the da Vinci Xi robotic system in a single center. Thirty-five female patients underwent robotic single-site surgery between June 2016 and January 2017. The median console time for hysterectomy with or without salpingo-oophorectomy was 41 min...

The aim of the study is to evaluate anatomic and functional late-term outcomes of robotic mesh sacrocolpopexy (RMS) at a single tertiary-care institution. Following IRB approval, a retrospective chart review of a prospectively collected database on consecutive patients who underwent RMS for symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse and had 3 year minimum follow-up was performed. Data collected included physical examination, validated questionnaires including Urogenital Distress Inventory, Incontinence Impact Questionnaire, and global Quality of Life (QOL)...

This case report describes the use a new flexible robotic system in otolaryngology, the FlexRobot(®) for cricopharyngeal myotomy in cadaver dissections, and for the treatment of a patient with esophageal stenosis and secondary dysphagia and dysphonia. The Flexrobot(®) facilitates access to the hypopharynx with increased proximity to the surgical field and improved optics, allowing more exact dilatation and injection in our patient. It also would allow surgeons to reach deep inside the cavity of the hypopharynx into anatomical regions that are typically inaccessible without an open approach, as shown in our cadaveric procedure, where full exposure of the posterior aspect of the cricopharyngeus and isolation of the muscle belly were achieved...

Although the da Vinci Single-Site(®) silicone port allows exact alignment and effective triangulation of instruments, it also has drawbacks. We introduce an alternative docking technique using the Glove port(®). From April 2014 to December 2016, respective 50 patients of the conventional silicone port and the glove port group were compared. The mean docking time was 16.6 ± 6.6 min in the silicone port group and 10.6 ± 3.6 min in the glove port group. Re-docking during the operation was needed in three patients in the silicone port group and readjustment of cannulae without re-docking could be simply performed in five patients in the glove port group...

Robotic rectal surgery is becoming increasingly more popular among colorectal surgeons. However, time spent on robotic platform docking, arm clashing and undocking of the platform during the procedure are factors that surgeons often find cumbersome and time consuming. The newest surgical platform, the da Vinci Xi, coupled with integrated table motion can help to overcome these problems. This technical note aims to describe a standardised operative technique of single docking robotic rectal surgery using the da Vinci Xi system and integrated table motion...

REVIEW
Antonia Gkouma
The aim of this literature review is to see where the robotic thymectomy stands nowadays. A thorough search of the PubMed revealed eighty-two related articles which reviewed comprehensively. The zero intraoperative mortality, the minimal intraoperative morbidity, as well as the recorded recurrence rate of 0-11.1% and complete stable remission rate of 0-40% suggests that the robotic-assisted thymectomy is a feasible, safe and an upcoming procedure. However, the lack of prospective randomized controlled trials prevents this technique to become the standard approach for the nonce...

Optimal management of node-positive prostate cancer patients after prostatectomy remains a challenge. We evaluated clinically localized patients who demonstrated node positivity and identified predictors for secondary treatment. From 2010 to 2015, clinically localized prostate cancer patients who underwent robot prostatectomy with extended lymphadenectomy and node-positive disease on pathologic analysis were identified. Clinical N1, M1 or salvage cases were excluded. Patients were stratified based on secondary treatments...

Considering the emerging advantages related to da Vinci Xi robotic platform, the aim of this study is to compare for the first time the operative outcomes of this tool to the previous da Vinci Si during transoral robotic surgery (TORS), both performed for squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) of the base of tongue (BOT). Intra- and peri-operative outcomes of eight patients with early stage (T1-T2) of the BOT carcinoma and undergoing TORS by means of the da Vinci Xi robotic platform (Xi-TORS) are compared with the da Vinci Si group ones (Si-TORS)...

Advantages of robotic-assisted colorectal surgery have been reported, but the effect on outcomes between obese and non-obese patients undergoing laparoscopic and robotic-assisted colorectal surgery remains unclear. Patients who underwent elective laparoscopic and robotic colon or rectal resections between 2012 and 2014 were identified in the ACS-NSQIP database. Propensity score matching was performed to determine the effect of obesity on laparoscopic and robotic-assisted 30-day surgical outcomes. 29,172 patients met inclusion criteria; 27,693 (94...

We evaluate the inter- and intraobserver variability of a telemanipulated femur fracture reduction system using a joystick device. Five examiners performed virtual reduction of 3D femur fracture models on two separate occasions. We assessed the inter- and intraobserver variability for the final alignment and reduction. The average difference between testing rounds was only 0.3 mm for overall displacement and 0.5° for overall rotation. There was an average time reduction between rounds of 11.7 s. The mean differences in overall displacement between examiners ranged between 0...

Very few cases of villous adenomas of the bladder or urinary tract have been described. To our knowledge this is the first account of resection of an urachal villous adenoma via robotic laparoscopy, which is a safe and efficacious surgical approach. At this time, there is not enough evidence to suggest that progression of disease to carcinoma is the typical course. Nonetheless, follow-up cystoscopy is recommended after complete removal of the adenoma to monitor for recurrence. This case report reviews the current literature and describes a novel approach to treatment of this exceedingly rare entity...

Francisco Schlottmann, Marco G Patti
Surgical simulation avoids practicing skills in patients, allowing trainees to learn in a safe, controlled, and standardized environment. Current robotic surgical simulators available include virtual reality simulators, human cadavers, and live animals. The use of cadavers has the highest possible fidelity available to practice entire operations. Nevertheless, their cost, availability, tissue compliance, and infection risk outweigh the advantages of cadaver models. Drawbacks of using live animals include anatomical differences with humans, high costs due to their housing and handling requirements, and ethical concerns...

In the interest of renal functional preservation, partial nephrectomy has supplanted radical nephrectomy as the preferred treatment for T1 renal masses. This procedure usually involves the induction of renal warm ischemia by clamping the hilar vessels prior to tumor excision. Performing robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) "off-clamp" can theoretically prevent renal functional loss associated with warm ischemia. We describe our institutional experience and compare perioperative and renal functional outcomes using a propensity score matched cohort...

Minimally invasive treatment options are a safe and feasible alternative for treatment of nutcracker syndrome. Endovascular stenting has shown promising long-term resolution of symptoms but can be complicated by stent migration or thrombosis. Laparoscopic extravascular stent placement has shown promising results with the potential to avoid these complications. We report the first case of extravascular stent placement using the robotic approach for the treatment of nutcracker syndrome.
