PURPOSE Minimal access portoenterostomy (Kasai procedure) for biliary atresia represents a technically challenging operation. The standard laparoscopic approach yields results comparable to the open technique. After an initial experience with standard laparoscopy, we assessed the potentially superior optics and dexterity of a surgical robotic system for performing portoenterostomy. We reviewed our experience with minimal access portoenterostomy to compare the relative advantages and… CONTINUE READING
