From Laparoscopy to Robotic Surgery: Sense and Nonsense

  • 639 Accesses

Abstract

The very first study relating to the use of robotic surgery in pediatrics was released in 2001 by Meininger with a case report about the execution of a Nissen fundoplication on a 10-year-old female, in which they analyzed the standard intraoperative monitoring parameters and some other more specific parameters such as the invasive pressure monitoring throughout the entire procedure; the results showed that the robotic procedure didn’t cause instability nor difficulties in the anesthesiological management [1].
