Robotic partial nephrectomy in the pediatric population: Cumulative experience at a large pediatric hospitalRobotic partial nephrectomy is a complex minimally invasive procedure that addresses the intricate anatomy of renal masses while maximizing preservation of renal function. However, while common in adults, the evolution toward these minimally invasive procedures for children has been slow due to the anticipated technical difficulties in pediatric-sized working spaces. We present our technique and our experience with pediatric robotic partial nephrectomies that were performed with our adult urology colleagues at a large free-standing children’s hospital.
Robot-assisted laparoscopic pyeloureterostomy in infants with duplex systems and upper pole hydronephrosis: Variations in double-J ureteral stenting techniquesWe describe our experience with robot-assisted laparoscopic (RAL) pyeloureterostomy in infants with duplex systems and upper pole hydronephrosis with an emphasis on the various double J (DJ) ureteral stent placement techniques.
Robot-assisted laparoscopic pyeloplasty in infants using 5-mm instrumentsUtilization of the robotic approach to pyeloplasty continues to grow in the field of pediatric urology. Adoption in the infant population has perhaps been the slowest because of the limited operative domain and relatively large instruments.
