Robot-assisted and laparoscopic pyeloplasty.
CONCLUSIONS: In view of published literature, minimally invasive surgery has been postulated as the standard treatment in UPJ stenosis, with superimposable results to open surgery. The high cost of robotic approach limits its use in this type of pathology. PMID: 28530625 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion With one of the largest follow-up periods in the literature, this study provides added evidence that minimally invasive surgery could become the preferable surgical approach for early stage cervical cancer, since it appears to reduce morbidity without affecting oncological results.
Conclusions Even with regular oral health care, bacterial numbers remained high in the upper incisor tooth gingiva in gastrointestinal cancer patients who received open surgery. Additional procedures are likely needed to effectively reduce the number of bacteria in the gingival area associated with the upper anterior teeth.
Conclusion MIS for apparent early stage MOGCTs was less comprehensive but associated with a decreased hospital stay and unplanned readmission rate.
Conclusion Developments in minimally invasive surgery are progressing day by day. As advances in laparoscopic and robotic surgery progress, complicated surgical procedures would be done efficiently.
Conclusions: Laparoscopic common bile duct exploration is an effective, safe management of common bile duct stone. PMID: 29862073 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: This subset of patients suggests the potential role of R3 and the benefits correlated to robotic surgery. In fact, the laparoscopic approach uses mostly a medial to lateral mobilization. Indeed, during laparoscopic surgery an early right colon mobilization may create problems in the surgical field visualization. In robotic surgery, R3 can lift upwards the cecum/ascending colon/hepatic flexure exposing, in doing so, the anatomical structures. Hence, we can use also the same approach of the open surgery (where the first step is usually the mobilization of the ascending colon mesentery). In other words, the R3 of...
Authors: Mangano A, Bustos R, Fernandes E, Masrur M, Valle V, Aguiluz G, Giulianotti PC Abstract Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has produced an important improvement in terms of peri-operative outcomes. Laparoscopic colorectal surgery presents comparable outcomes vs open approach from an oncological standpoint. However, there are some technical challenges/hurdles that laparoscopy may have. Worldwide there are still too many colonic/rectal operations carried out by the open approach. The robotic technology may be useful in solving some of the potential laparoscopic issues and potentially it may increase the number...
Conclusion: Regression analysis shows that there are significant learning and fatigue effects when peg transfer task in the training is repeated in a series of trials. However, for the training to be effective and efficient, there should be monitoring during the training to observe where in the learning curve a trainee gains maximum learning benefits. Furthermore, fatigue is a significant indicator of efficiency and accuracy in terms of completion time and errors, respectively. PMID: 29854453 [PubMed]
CONCLUSIONS: In our experience, and according to some of the literature data as well, during robotic left colonic/rectal resections the routine mobilization of the left flexure as a standard procedure is not a risk factor in terms of iatrogenic spleen injury rate. Conversely, this technique may be beneficial: a) it does not excessively extend the operative time; b) It increases the surgical skills acquirement; c) It reduces the tension-related anastomotic ischemia; d) It allows a better oncological dissection. Standard laparoscopic approach reduces the rate of spleen by almost 3,5 times in comparison to open surgery. The i...
