BACKGROUND There currently exist several training modules to improve performance during video-assisted surgery. The unique characteristics of robotic surgery make these platforms an inadequate environment for the development and assessment of robotic surgical performance. METHODS Expert surgeons (n=4) (>50 clinical robotic procedures and >2 years of(More)
We sought to study our mid-term outcomes and our patient's perceptions of robotically-assisted coronary artery bypass (RACAB). The daVinci robotic system was utilized to harvest and prepare the internal thoracic artery (ITA) as well as to open the pericardium and identify the target vessels. Anastomoses were performed by hand on the beating heart through(More)
