Special Issue Introduction:

Robot assisted surgeries and their indications are rapidly expanding. The robotic surgical technology has been used in many fields in urology. Novel applications and techniques have been developed in all fields of urology. In the future, robotic systems combined with new technological innovations will lead to new surgery techniques and approaches with better patient outcomes. In this chapter, the applications, developments, complications and techniques of robot assisted surgeries in urology will be reviewed and their current applications will be highlighted.

  • Robotic and laparoscopic urologic surgery ischemic preconditioning

    Murat Zor , Kubra Ozgok Kangal
    Laparoscopic and robotic assisted surgeries have evolved from a limited surgical procedure to a major surgical technique during the last three decades. The indications increased incrementally. Despite its several advantages, it has some surgery and pneumoperitoneum related adverse effects and hemodynamic complications. One of them is the ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) of the abdominal organs that can be developed secondary to pneumoperitoneum. IRI is also a risk factor for acute kidney injury in partial nephrectomy surgeries even performed via open, or laparoscopic/robotic assisted. To... Read more

  • Robotic urologic surgery complications

    Erdem Koc , Abdullah Erdem Canda
    Robot-assisted surgery is a commonly performed procedure in the recent urological approach. The scientific data that reveal the complication rates also tend to increase by the rising popularity of the robot-assisted surgeries in the treatment of urological cancers. Patient characteristics, nature of the cancer and learning curve of the surgeon are the determinant factors of the complication rates. Nevertheless, robot-assisted surgical techniques are safer with acceptable morbidity and mortality rates as compared to open surgical methods. In urology practice, robotic surgery is most commonly...

  • Complications of robotic and laparoscopic urologic surgery relevant to anesthesia

    Muhammed Ersagun Arslan , Ayşegül Özgök
    Technology keeps advancing in this era allowing surgery to become less invasive in many surgical sciences. Besides these technological advances, minimally invasive procedures such as laparoscopy and robotic assisted laparoscopy are preferred widely around the globe by both surgeons and patients. Because of the increasing demand to laparoscopy and robotic surgery, anesthetists also should adapt to these specific surgical procedures. Carbon dioxide (CO2) insufflation is applied in these procedures in order to provide working space and exposure to target organs. CO2 insufflation... Read more
