BACKGROUND Robotic techniques are claimed to be an alternative to laparoscopic and open approaches for gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) treatment. Our aim is to present our single center experience and a literature review. MATERIALS AND METHODS From June 2012 to August 2014, six patients with preoperative diagnosis of GIST were treated by robotic surgery at Sanchinarro University Hospital. RESULTS Two GIST tumors were localized in the second part of the duodenum, one in the first… CONTINUE READING
