To construct patient-specific physical three-dimensional (3D) models of renal units with materials that approximates the properties of renal tissue to allow pre-operative and robotic training surgical simulation, 3D physical kidney models were created (3DSystems, Rock Hill, SC) using computerized tomography to segment structures of interest (parenchyma, vasculature, collection system, and tumor). Images were converted to a 3D surface mesh file for fabrication using a multi-jet 3D printer. A novel construction technique was employed to approximate normal renal tissue texture, printers selectively deposited photopolymer material forming the outer shell of the kidney, and subsequently, an agarose gel solution was injected into the inner cavity recreating the spongier renal parenchyma...

The role of a cystogram to assess the vesico-urethral anastomosis (VUA) after robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RARP) has been debated. Early catheter removal without cystogram was reported to be associated with a trend towards an increased risk of acute urinary retention (AUR). In two cohorts we studied the effects of VUA leakage on cystogram and functional outcome after RARP. Cohort A contained 1390 consecutive men that routinely underwent a cystogram after RARP. Transurethral catheter (TUC) was removed in the absence of VUA leakage or minimal leakage on subsequent repeat cystogram...

We have recently described the use of a retropubic suburethral autologous sling created and placed during robotic radical prostatectomy (RARP). In this study, we assess the effectiveness of newly designed six-branches compared to two-branches suburethral autologous sling in improving early urinary continence (UC) recovery. 120 patients submitted to RARP were prospectively randomized according to the intraoperative positioning of six-branches (group 1, n = 60) or two-branches autologous sling (group 2, n = 60) obtained by different configuration of a same tract of vas deferens removed...

Abdominal intercostal hernia is an uncommon phenomenon, reported in few case reports and small case series. If left untreated, it can lead to strangulation and visceral ischemia. Prompt diagnosis and appropriate surgical intervention are thus critical to prevent resulting morbidity. We present a 50-year-old woman with a large abdominal intercostal hernia after an open nephrectomy. She underwent a successful robotic repair of the hernia with mesh placement. Through the presentation, we would like to raise awareness of intercostal hernia as a complication of open nephrectomy and significance of early diagnosis in avoiding potential morbidity...

We describe a simple technique in which current and freely available technology can be utilised by surgeons while operating the Da Vinci Si/Xi Surgical Robotic systems. This technique allows for a parallel intraoperative display within the surgical console of any desired subject material from a standard computer, utilising commercially available cabling. The ability to view 3D reconstructed images, patient radiology and patient results within the console whilst operating, has the potential to increase operative efficiency, reduce error and aid in adequate resection of tissues...

An 87-year-old man, who had been experiencing progressive dysphagia and slight chest discomfort for 12 months, presented for an esophagram with a diagnosis of achalasia. A giant esophageal lipoma (14.5- × 4.5- × 3.5-cm) that caused symptomatic dysphagia and a dilated esophagus was revealed by computed tomography and endoscopic esophageal ultrasound. For such a huge esophageal lipoma in a geriatric patient, we successfully enucleated the mediastinal lesion via a minimally invasive approach using the da Vinci S Surgical System...

The objective of this is to compare the surgical outcomes of partial nephrectomy (PN), performed via three different approaches: robot-assisted (RAPN), laparoscopic (LPN), and open (OPN), in a single non-academic regional center. The data of patients undergoing PN at our Department from 2005 to 2016 were prospectively collected. A logistic regression model adjusted for preoperative variables (age, tumor size, creatinine and hemoglobin, ASA and Padua scores) was performed to evaluate whether transfusion, conversion, and postoperative complication rate were influenced by the surgical approach...

This case report describes the use of trans-oral robotic surgery (TORS) for the excision of a combined laryngocele. Mixed or combined laryngoceles extend from the supraglottic larynx through the thyrohyoid membrane into the neck. Surgical excision for these benign lesions often requires combined external (transcervical) and internal (transoral endoscopic) approaches which carry significant morbidity. We present the case of a 37-year-old male who was diagnosed with a large laryngopyocele and was subsequently managed with a transoral excision using the da Vinci Si surgical robot system...

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) has been used to treat localized prostate cancers. Similar to all forms of ablation, including radiation and cryoablation, there is a local persistence rate. Salvage robotic prostatectomy has been utilized but published series are multi-institutional, multi-surgeon, and do not segregate the different HIFU devices. The results are also grouped with other forms of ablation. This series describes the technical results of a single surgeon performing salvage robotic prostatectomy on only HIFU patients, and only after whole gland ablation on a Sonablate 500 device...

Laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery, two forms of minimally invasive surgery (MIS), have recently experienced a large increase in utilization. Prior studies have shown that video game experience (VGE) may be associated with improved laparoscopic surgery skills; however, similar data supporting a link between VGE and proficiency on a robotic skills simulator (RSS) are lacking. The objective of our study is to determine whether volume or timing of VGE had any impact on RSS performance. Pre-clinical medical students completed a comprehensive questionnaire detailing previous VGE across several time periods...
