The new Da Vinci XI Robot debuts at the Sant’Eugenio hospital

From this morning the operating rooms of the Sant’Eugenio hospital are equipped with the Robot da Vinci XI, One of the most advanced robotic systems for minimally invasive surgery. The new robot was presented by the Councilor for Health of the Lazio Region, Alessio D’Amato and by the general manager of the ASL Rome 2, Giorgio Casati.

The technical characteristics of the robot

The technical characteristics of the robot allow the surgeon, physically far from the operating field and sitting at a position with monitors and commands, to move the arms of the robot, connected to endoscopic tools, which are introduced through small incisions. The operating field is projected three -dimensionally, with firm and very high resolution images.

Robot-axist surgery allows to carry out small engravings with reduction of tissue traumatism, less bleeding and less need for transfusions, the reduction of hospitalization and post-operative pain, the reduction of recovery times with a faster recovery in carrying out thedaily activities and above all greater security for the patient.

The application of this new system will be adopted by the specialist surgies of the UOC of gynecology and obstetrics and the UOC of Urology of the Sant’Eugenio hospital.

Comment on the Councilor for Health, Alessio D’Amato

“It is a great innovation Comment on the Councilor for Health, Alessio D’Amato Thanks to the robotic surgery that operates through a robotic arm, an extremely precise planning of the interventions is allowed taking into consideration the specific anatomy of each individual patient. The Sant’Eugenio hospital takes a decisive step forward towards a future where the figure of the patient is placed in the center by combining new technologies and humanization of care ”.

Gynecological surgery represents, together with the urology, the specialist branch with greater clinical indications to the robotic technique. The pathologies, in the gynecological field, which require a robotic approach in robotic surgery are without uterine neoplasms, both the carcinoma of the endometrium and that of the neck of the#8217; uterus, where the possibility of performing a mininvasive techniqueof greater precision also compared to laparoscopy in safeguarding nerve and vascular structures, offers advantages to all patients.

Furthermore, particular indication is for patients with obesity where, the possibility of reducing the traumatism and technical difficulties of a traditional laparotomic intervention also joins the fact of performing interventions with low endaemal pressures and therefore with a rapid recovery in the postoperative.

Other indications, in the field of benign pathology, are without the other the deep endometriosis disease where there is the involvement of organs and structures adjacent to uterus and ovaries and all the pathology of the pelvic floor, such as the uterus, right and bladder prolaxis, where, with the minimum traumatism, the reconstruction of the affected structures is performed.

The assisted robot surgery is in the most extensive application in the field of surgery in the urology and in particular in the interventions that require a three-dimensional vision with strong enlargement and refined movements in treating nerve structures that in the post-operative will be essential for a rapid recovery of theurinary and sexual functions. It also allows to deal with interventions of greater complexity such as in kidney saving surgery and the intracorporeal reconstruction of the bladder with less invasiveness and better functional results.
