Complications in Robotic Single Port Surgery

Chapter

Abstract

Here in this chapter, we wish to outline the surgical complications specific to robotic laparoendoscopic single-site (R-LESS) surgery. This is an emerging field, and only a few centers of excellence in the world have attempted R-LESS urological procedures. Although many of the possible complications of conventional laparoscopy are inherent to R-LESS urologic surgery, they have yet to be identified by the limited number of surgical cases which have been reported in current literature. The aim of this chapter is to review the literature on R-LESS urologic surgery, describe the complications, and suggest the management strategies for each complication.
