BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Minimally invasive surgery including laparoscopic and robotic surgery was recently approved for clinical use in hepatobiliary surgery. The purpose of this article is to evaluate the feasibility and technical aspects of robotic single incision for hepatobiliary surgery using the GelPort laparoscopic system in a preliminary animal study. METHODS We performed eight robotic single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) procedures, including four cholecystectomies and four lateral… CONTINUE READING
