This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility of using a robotic DaVinci system to the treatment of gastric and right colon resections in patients with neoplasm.
Materials and methods
From March 2009 to September we performed by a robotic DaVinci system 5 right emicolectomies and 4 gastric resections. The patients with right colon neoplasm (3 female and 2 male

The video shows technical aspects of robotic Total Mesorectal Excision (TME). Three robotic and two laparoscopic trocars were inserted. The cart and the arms of Da Vinci© are maintained in the same position during all the operation and the technique is full robotic. The anastomosis is performed under laparoscopic guidance with the Knight-Griffen technique.
