Preclinical cadaveric study of transanal endoscopic da Vinci® surgery

Published inBritish journal of surgery, vol. 99, no. 8, p. 1144-1148
Publication date2012

Single-port platforms are increasingly being used for transanal surgery and may be associated with a shorter learning curve than transanal endoscopic microsurgery. However, these procedures remain technically challenging, and robotic technology could overcome some of the limitations and increase intraluminal manoeuvrability. An initial experimental experience with transanal endoscopic da Vinci(®) surgery (TEdS) using a glove port on human cadavers is reported.
