BACKGROUND The use of surgical robots has slowly gained an increasing presence in the realm of hepatobiliary and pancreatic (HPB) surgery. With additional experience, anecdotal evidence has been useful in guiding patient selection for complex robotic procedures. In the following analysis, we reviewed our case series and looked for predictors of conversion in robotic HPB surgery. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed all patients who underwent robotic HPB procedures by a single surgeon at two… CONTINUE READING
