Fully Robotic Repair of Renal Artery Aneurism
P.C. Giulianotti SUMMARY: The pneumoperitoneum is induced with the Verres needle and 7 trocars are inserted. The right renal hilum is exposed mobilizing the right colon and the duodenum. The renal vein is dissected and retracted to expose the artery. The aneurism is identify and carefully dissected. A graft from the right great safena is harvested and introduced in the abdominal cavity. The aneurism is clamped and opened. The renal artery is finally reconstructed with the “Y-shaped” veno us graft.
Chicago 2009 Video – Robotic Repair of Renal Artery Aneurysm
P. Addeo SUMMARY 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.
