The use of robotic techniques in colorectal surgery is increasing. Recently, the Senhance™ surgical robotic system was introduced as a novel robotic platform designed to overcome some of the limits of standard laparoscopy. This study describes the initial, single‐center experience, evaluating feasibility and safety of the new robotic system in performing colorectal surgical procedures. 
An early experience with the Senhance surgical robotic system in colorectal surgery: a single‐institute study
The initial single‐centre experience with Senhance surgical robot‐assisted colorectal surgery is presented and its safety and feasibility are examined.

Initial Experience With a New Robotic Surgical System for Cholecystectomy
The results suggest that Senhance-assisted cholecystectomy is safe, feasible, and effective, but currently has longer operative times.
Haptic feedback in the da Vinci Research Kit (dVRK): A user study based on grasping, palpation, and incision tasks
It was suggested that the lack of haptic feedback, formerly considered a limitation for the da Vinci robotic system, does not affect robotic surgeons because of training and compensation based on
Robotic Surgery in Children: Embracing the Future
The use of robotic-assisted surgery is increasing even in younger children, infants, and neonates, however, more strong studies are needed in order to assess the scientific evidence of this approach versus the conventional open or laparoscopic techniques.
New Robotic Systems
The MIRA system is a novel robotic design in development phase, which miniaturizes and internalizes the robotic working elements of the da Vinci Surgical System.
First experience using the Senhance surgical system in laparoscopic local gastrectomy for gastrointestinal stromal tumor
This study experienced a case of laparoscopic local gastrectomy (LLG) for gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) with the Senhance Surgical System (SSS), the first to report LLG for GIST with the SSS.


Use of robot‐specific resources and operating room times: the case of Telelap Alf‐X robotic hysterectomy
The aim of this study was to identify, quantify and evaluate the use of robotic materials and operating theatre times in Telelap ALF‐X robotic hysterectomy.
Robotic and Laparoscopic Surgery for Treatment of Colorectal Diseases
Robot-assisted surgery proved to be as safe and effective as laparoscopic techniques in the treatment of colorectal diseases and the cost-effectiveness of the procedure still needs to be evaluated.
A new telesurgical platform – preliminary clinical results
The new Telelap Alf-x telesurgical system combines the benefits of open surgery and endoscopy and enables for the first time to feel the consistency of the tissues and avoid tearing of the stitches while suturing.
Experimental Nephrectomies Using a Novel Telesurgical System: (The Telelap ALF-X)-A Pilot Study.
The Telelap Alf-X proved to be safe and reliable and can be easily used by the surgeon, and the porcine model nephrectomies proved to been an excellent way to gain experience and avoid future complications.
Robotic Surgery: A Current Perspective
Robotic surgery is still in its infancy and its niche has not yet been well defined, so its current practical uses are mostly confined to smaller surgical procedures.
Transatlantic robot-assisted telesurgery
It is shown that robot-assisted remote telesurgery can be safely carried out across transoceanic distances and will eliminate geographical constraints and make surgical expertise available throughout the world, improving patient treatment and surgical training.
Robotic Colonic Surgery: Is It Advisable to Commence a New Learning Curve?
The present evidence on robotic Colonic surgery has shown both feasibility and a safety profile comparable to standard laparoscopic colonic surgery, however, operative time and cost were greater in robotic colonic Surgery, with no difference in the length of postoperative stay in comparison with standard lapARoscopic coloni surgery.
Robotic surgery in Italy national survey (2011)
From the analysis of world literature and a survey carried out in Italy, Robotic surgery, which at the moment could be better defined as telesurgery, represents a significant advantage for operators and a consistent gain for the patient, however, it still has important limits such as high cost and non-structured training of operators.
