OBJECTIVE: To increase the diagnostic sensitivity of standard MAG3 diuretic renal scans for ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) by exploring the utility of an alternative measurement P40, the percentage of maximal tracer counts present at 40 minutes. METHODS: Patients with strong clinical and anatomic evidence for UPJO may have a normal T1/2, making definitive diagnosis difficult. We reviewed the charts of 142 consecutive patients who underwent successful laparoscopic or robotic-assisted laparoscopic pyeloplasty for UPJO between 2005 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Utilization of the robotic approach to pyeloplasty continues to grow in the field of pediatric urology. Adoption in the infant population has perhaps been the slowest because of the limited operative domain and relatively large instruments. METHOD: In this video, we demonstrate key steps in performing an infant robotic pyeloplasty using the smallest instruments currently available for the da Vinci S and Si systems (Intuitive Surgical, Sunnyvale, California)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is two-fold: first to describe the non-narcotic pathway for the management of postoperative pain after robotic pyeloplasty; second, to compare perioperative outcomes for children undergoing robotic pyeloplasty whose postoperative pain was managed with and without the non-narcotic pathway. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective reviewed was performed on 96 consecutive patients from October 2011 to December 2015 who underwent robotic pyeloplasty by three primary surgeons at a single pediatric institution...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether or not temporary drainage is necessary immediately following laparoscopic (lap) and robot-assisted (rob) pyeloplasty (PP). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Of 99 patients undergoing lap PP (n = 23) or rob PP (n = 76) for treatment of ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO), 52 had no drainage, 47 were given an "easy-flow" drain (EFD). The volume of leaking urine (in mL) was defined as the volume of drainage fluid (in mL) × creatinine concentration in drainage fluid (in μmol/mL)/median urine creatinine concentration (in μmol/mL)...

OBJECTIVE: To report a novel approach of pediatric robot-assisted redo pyeloplasty with buccal mucosa graft (BMG). METHODS: An IRB-approved retrospective review of all patients undergoing robot-assisted redo pyeloplasty with BMG at our institution was performed. OPERATIVE DETAILS: For all patients, the following ports were used: one 8.5mm camera, two 8mm robotic, and one 5mm assistant. Initial dissection was performed laparoscopically and robotically, and the ureter was incised longitudinally along the anterior surface...

INTRODUCTION: The introduction of the robotic surgical platform has led to distinct changes in practice patterns and the utilization of minimally invasive surgery in urology. While use of the robotic system is associated with improvements in perioperative outcomes such as estimated blood loss and hospital stay, there are significant fixed and variable costs with the purchase, maintenance and use of the robotics system that has led many authors to investigate the cost effectiveness of robotic urologic surgery...

Robot-assisted surgery on a broad front - without evidence for being cost-effective Robot-assisted surgery is currently heavily marketed. The HTA centre in Region Västra Götaland has produced five HTA reports regarding use of robot-assisted surgery in different clinical situations (prostatic cancer, benign gynaecological surgery, pediatric pyeloplasty and fundoplication, and rectal cancer), finding weak evidence for a patient value. The current report by Per Carlsson et al confirms that robot-assisted surgery indeed leads to increased costs that are not balanced by augmented patient value, i...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic reconstructive surgery is associated with a steep learning curve related to the use of two-dimensional (2D) vision and rigid instruments. With the advent of robotic surgery, three-dimensional (3D) vision, and articulated instruments, this learning curve has been facilitated. We present a hybrid alternative to robotic surgery, using laparoscopy with 3D vision and articulated shears. OBJECTIVE: To compare outcomes of children undergoing pyeloplasty using 3D laparoscopy with articulated instruments with those undergoing the same surgery using standard laparoscopy with 2D vision and rigid instruments...

REVIEW
Khurram Mutahir Siddiqui, David Mois Albala
Advancement in surgical management of urolithiasis has revolved around improvements in technology. Urologists have been at the forefront on embracing new technology and passing on the benefits to the patients. Da Vinci(®) robotic system has contributed significantly in improving the outcomes of minimally invasive procedures especially those requiring complex resections and reconstruction. Endourological and percutaneous techniques have established superiority in management of urolithiasis and majority of the patients are ideal candidates for such procedures...

Management of pelvi-ureteric junction obstruction (PUJO) in a duplex system is technically challenging as dissection at the pelvis may jeopardize the vascularity of the normal moiety ureter. Anastomosing the pelvis to the one single ureter will have a risk of future development of stricture which then will risk both the moieties. Robotic assistance enables appropriate tissue dissection; minimal handling of normal ureter and precision in suturing, overcoming the potential challenges involved in the minimally invasive management of such complex cases...

PURPOSE: Failure after pyeloplasty for ureteropelvic junction obstruction in children may occur in up to 10% of cases. Therapeutic options include Double-J® stent placement, endoscopic treatment and reoperation. Laparoscopic and robotic reoperative modalities seem safe and efficacious, although pediatric series are limited in the literature. We report the largest known series of reoperative laparoscopic ureteropelvic junction obstruction repair in children and compare this approach to primary laparoscopic pyeloplasty...

Despite the introduction of robotic surgery in 2000, few pediatric surgeons outside the United States have embraced this technology. We discuss our experience with establishing the first Canadian pediatric robotic surgery program. After simulator training, live animal surgery and observation of robotically assisted cases at an outside institution, we performed our first pediatric da Vinci(®) surgery in July 2013. A prospective database was established to assess outcomes. Forty one children have undergone robotically assisted surgery for the following 42 procedures: (a) pyeloplasty (17), (b) ureteral reimplantations (12), (c) uretero-uretostomy (1), (d) cholecystectomies (10), (e) interval appendectomy (1) and (f) distal pancreatectomy (1)...

The objective of this study is to determine the cost and charge differences between patients undergoing open vs. robotic pyeloplasty. This is a retrospective analysis of the Pediatric Health Information System (PHIS) database in patients undergoing pyeloplasty between 2004 and 2013 conducted in large pediatric children's hospitals in the United States which contribute to PHIS. The participants included all pediatric patients undergoing pyeloplasty at these institutions. We assessed RCC-based cost, charge details, length of stay, and the presence of complications, and compared them between open and robotic cases...

PURPOSE: Diuretic renography (DRG) is commonly used to diagnose ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) and to evaluate the success of surgical repair (pyeloplasty). Duration, frequency, and interpretation of renographic follow-ups are still under dispute. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 94 consecutive patients diagnosed with UPJO who underwent a minimally invasive, robotically assisted laparoscopic pyeloplasty at our institution between January 2009 and September 2015...

OBJECTIVE: To report on a multi-institutional series of non-robotic urological laparoendoscopic single-site surgery in Japan. METHODS: Consecutive cases of laparoendoscopic single-site surgery carried out between February 2009 and December 2012 at nine academic institutions were included. We examined the surgical outcomes, including conversion and complications rates. RESULTS: Four hundred and sixty-nine cases were included in the analysis...

INTRODUCTION: It is believed that the outcomes of robotic surgery depends not only on the experience of the console surgeon but also the patient-side assistant. However, objective data supporting it is lacking. The aim of this study was to objectively determine change in operative outcomes with increasing experience of patient-side assistant. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 222 urologic robotic procedures performed by two teams of surgeon-assistant and split the data into two chronological halves according to date of surgery...
