Chicago 2009 Video – Robotic Repair of Renal Artery Aneurysm
December 4, 2009
Renal artery aneurysms (RAA) represent a rare disease. Open surgical repair represents the gold standard for RAA not suitable for endovascular treatment. This presentation shows the technique and the results of a new therapeutic option for RAA repair using robotic surgery. This preliminary experience, even though limited by the small sample size, suggests that robotic RAA repair represents a potential alternative to open surgery for RAA repair.
