Özet

We report a 27 year-old patient with a dermoid cyst who underwent robotic single port transumbilical ovarian cystectomy. She was operated through a 2 cm long single midline umbilical incision using a new platform from Intuitive Surgical. The operative time was 45 minutes and the docking time was 15 minutes. Ovarian cystectomy using the da Vinci single-port system is feasible and effective. This new semi-rigid robotic surgery platform may increase access to the potential advantages of single-site surgery. Robotic systems designed specifically for single port approach have the potential of alleviating several of the limitations associated with traditional laparoscopic single-site surgery.
