In the last few years, robotic surgery has started to take its place in pancreatic surgery. Robotic surgery provides advantages such as enhanced visualisation and freedom of dissection within a confined space and also allows economical surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, safety and short-term outcome of the robotic approach using the da Vinci robotic system in pancreatic/peripancreatic tumors other than pancreatic carcinomas. Fifteen patients with eight intraductal… CONTINUE READING
