Abstract

Introduction: The da Vinci Xi system, the latest model of the robotic technology, is proposed to enable multiquadrant abdominal surgery to be performed in a fully robotic approach without the need for a laparoscopic assistance, robot re-docking or re-positioning of the trocars. However, the literature has limited data on this topic. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the feasibility of the Xi robot use in rectal cancer surgery, a multiquadrant surgical procedure.
