Intravesical robotically assisted bilateral ureteral reimplantation.
TLDR
The clinical utility of robotically assisted intravesical bilateral ureteral reimplantation in children with unilateral persisting low-grade reflux is assessed and the technique may be a useful option for antireflux surgery. Expand
Minimal access portoenterostomy: advantages and disadvantages of standard laparoscopic and robotic techniques.
TLDR
Both surgical modalities are feasible from a technical point of view, however, the optical and dexterity advantages of the robotic system were offset by the large instrument size and lack of force feedback. Expand
A comparison of laparoscopic and robotic assisted suturing performance by experts and novices.
TLDR
The ProMis surgical simulator was able to distinguish between skill levels (expert versus novice) on robotic suturing tasks, suggesting that the ProMIS is a valid tool for measuring skill in robot-assisted surgery. Expand
Robot-assisted laparoscopic resection of a type I choledochal cyst in a child.
TLDR
The da Vinci Surgical System was used to facilitate the minimally invasive treatment of a type I choledochal cyst in a 5-year-old, 22 kg, girl and appears safe and feasible. Expand
First STEPs: serial transverse enteroplasty as a primary procedure in neonates with congenital short bowel.
TLDR
Primary STEP is a feasible and safe surgical option for the treatment of congenital conditions resulting in SBS and appears to obviate the need for interval stomas and their associated loss of bowel length in neonates with congenital SBS. Expand
L1CAM mutation in association with X-linked hydrocephalus and Hirschsprung’s disease
TLDR
A case of a patient with concurrent XLH and Hirschsprung’s disease, where the patient was delivered via cesarean section at 37 weeks gestation and underwent uneventful ventriculoperitoneal shunt placement, and a rectal biopsy, which was consistent with HSCR. Expand
Inventing our future: training the next generation of surgeon innovators.
TLDR
A 2-year educational fellowship is described which teaches both the process and the discipline of medical/surgical device innovation. Expand
Esophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula in very low-birth-weight neonates: improved outcomes with staged repair.
TLDR
Staged repair of EA/TEF in very low-birth-weight premature infants results in a significantly lower rate of anastomotic complications and overall morbidity and should be considered the preferred surgical approach in this group of patients. Expand
Robot-assisted pediatric surgery.
TLDR
The purpose of this article is to review the current experimental and clinical literature regarding the use of robotic surgical systems in the pediatric patient population. Expand
Robotically Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery in a Pediatric Population: Initial Experience, Technical Considerations, and Description of the da Vinci® Surgical System
TLDR
The initial RMAS experience with the da Vinci® Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Sunnyvale, California) is presented, and technical considerations, advantages, and disadvantages are discussed. Expand
