Robotic Surgery: Treatment of a Type I Choledochal Cyst in an Adult Patient
May 3, 2010
Pier C. Giulianotti (Chicago – USA)
The video shows the technique of a minimally invasive robotic assisted treatment of a choledochal cyst type one. The cyst is dissected and resected in a totally minimally invasive technique. Once the lesion and the common bile duct are isolated, the common bile duct is transected distally using a blu load stapler (endogia) and using scissors proximally. The reconstruction of the biliary tree is performed by a roux-en-Y intestinal interposition.
