da Vinci Robot Assisted Right Hemicolectomy with Intracorporeal Anastamosis

Contributors: Jimmy Lin and Craig Rezac

This procedure is a da Vinci Robot assisted Right hemicolectomy with intracorporeal anastomosis performed on a 52 year-old male who was found to have a cecal adenocarcinoma on screening colonoscopy. Metastatic work-up was negative.

da Vinci Assisted Extended Right Hemicolectomy and End Ileostomy

Contributors: Jimmy Lin and  Craig Rezac

Robotic surgery offers benefits to both patient and surgeon by allowing smaller incisions and faster recovery time, to better accuracy, flexibility and control.  Many procedures which have previously been conducted with laparoscopy, or open surgery, are becoming further improved in robotic surgery. This video demonstrates once such procedure, the extended right hemicolectomy.

Modified Martius Flap for Rectovaginal Fistula

Contributors: Dr. Jimmy Lin, Dr. Juana Hutchinson-Colas, Dr. Nell Maloney-Patel

Rectovaginal fistulas can occur for a number of reasons, including obstetric trauma, iatrogenic, radiation damage and Crohn’s disease. Symptoms range from asymptomatic to uncontrollable passage of gas or feces from the vagina leading to poor quality of life for some patients. For those patients whom surgery is indicated, there are several different approaches depending on the fistula etiology and previous attempts at repair. These range from simple fistulectomy to transabdominal repair with tissue interposition to Martius flap interposition. Our patient in the video had previously underwent multiple various repairs which failed to provide adequate resolution of her fistula and therefore presented for a Modified Martius flap repair. The benefit of such a repair is to provide neovascularity at the site of repair with minimal cosmetic effect.

Robotic-assisted Low Anterior Resection with Proximal Colotomy

Contributors: Dr. Jimmy Lin and Dr. Craig Rezac

Robotic surgery offers benefits to both patient and surgeon by allowing smaller incisions with faster recovery time, as well as better accuracy, flexibility and control.  Many procedures which had previously been conducted with laparoscopy, or open surgery, are further improved upon with robotic surgery. This is a video of a robotic-assisted LAR in a male with a T4N2M0 rectal cancer with concern for invasion into the prostate and seminal vesicles. The patient also has a synchronous proximal tubulovillous adenoma which had been biopsied but not completely resected during a previous colonoscopy. He therefore also underwent an intra-operative colotomy and colon polyp resection. This video demonstrates the advantages of robotic-assisted surgery in conjunction with more traditional procedures in order to provide the best care possible for the patient.
