Few publications describe the potential benefit of robotic-assisted inguinal hernia repair on acute postoperative groin pain (APGP). This study compared patients' perceptions of APGP, activity limitation, and overall satisfaction after robotic-assisted- (R), laparoscopic (L), or open (O) inguinal hernia repair (IHR). Random samples of patients from two web-based research panels and surgical practices were screened for patients who underwent IHR between October 28, 2015 and November 1, 2016. Qualified patients were surveyed to assess perceived APGP at 1 week postoperatively, activity disruption, and overall satisfaction...

Minimally invasive surgical techniques are important in surgical management of thymic pathologies. Traditional access techniques are being replaced with minimally invasive techniques using multiportal or uniportal approach. Adoption of minimally invasive techniques for thymic malignancies has been slow due to long term recurrence concerns. Recent studies show that minimally invasive video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) or robotic approach to early stage thymic malignancies are associated with less intraoperative bleeding, lower rate of respiratory complications, shorter chest tube duration and shorter hospital stay...

Studies of laparoscopic approaches in colorectal surgery support the use of such methods. Compared with the open approach, laparoscopy reduces rates of postoperative complications and decreases length of stay, while providing equivalent oncologic outcomes. Nevertheless, much of colorectal surgery is still being performed by the open approach. This may be partly due to the technical challenges in performing laparoscopy, particularly when working in narrow spaces such as the pelvis. Moreover, some of the current literature has questioned the oncologic outcomes after laparoscopic surgery for rectal cancer...

Deep intracranial tumor removal can be achieved if the neurosurgical robot has sufficient flexibility and stability. Towards achieving this goal, we have developed a spring-based continuum robot, namely a Minimally Invasive Neurosurgical Intracranial Robot (MINIR-II) with novel tendon routing and tunable stiffness for use in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) environment. The robot consists of a pair of springs in parallel, i.e., an inner inter-connected spring that promotes flexibility with decoupled segment motion and an outer spring that maintains its smooth curved shape during its interaction with the tissue...

Pancreatic mucinous cystic neoplasms (MCNs) are rare tumors typically of the distal pancreas that harbor malignant potential. Although resection is recommended, data are limited on optimal operative approaches to distal pancreatectomy for MCN. MCN resections (2000-2014; eight institutions) were included. Outcomes of minimally invasive and open MCN resections were compared. A total of 289 patients underwent distal pancreatectomy for MCN: 136(47%) minimally invasive and 153(53%) open. Minimally invasive procedures were associated with smaller MCN size (3...
