FIRST PRIZE IN SURGICAL TECHNIQUE FOR GENERAL SURGERY SERVICE HM SANCHINARRO at the 6th World Congress of Surgery ROBOTICS
The Department of General and Digestive Surgery Hospital HM University Sanchinarro, led by Drs. Vicente Emilio and Yolanda Quijano, has received the first prize in Surgical Technique at the 6th World Congress of Robotic Surgery organized by the Association of Clinical Robotic Surgery [CRES], held this weekend in San Francisco. The objective of the CRSA is to deal with the practical issues that focus on general surgery and its related specialties.
Despite being a relatively young congress, he attended by experts from 17 countries around the world to compare and discuss the practical aspects of robotic surgery.
The prize was awarded for the success of an intervention performed in two stages: the first stage was to conduct an in situ liver bipartition and ligation of the right portal vein resection of hepatic metastases I segment. In the second procedure, performed 15 days after the complete removal of tumor liver (80% of the liver) was performed. Both procedures were performed for the first time in the world with robotic support. "Our team performed this operation three years ago HM Sanchinarro open surgery. In the world there have been a total of 420 interventions like this, and 10 of them have been in our hospital. But we're the only ones who have done via robotics, and is a technique of a remarkable complexity, "explain Drs. Vincent and Quijano.
And it is an extreme technique liver surgery for patients with primary or secondary liver tumors. Experts say that without this technique would have no therapeutic options. Of the 10 patients operated on 5 live free of disease.
For those responsible for the General Surgery Service of HM Sanchinarro, this award is "not only a great honor, but also an important stimulus to further develop Robotics Surgery at the highest level.
We believe it is not the future, it is this surgery. Its evolution, being dizzy, is closely related to the existing technological advancement. In four years he has been active robotic surgery program 210 procedures have been performed in 205 patients. The majority (90%) in oncological surgery (rectal cancer, colon, esophagus, stomach, duodenum, pancreas and liver, and retroperitoneal tumors).
But in addition to this recognition, the Department of General Surgery and Digestive HM 6 papers presented Sanchinarro more, "what makes us the third hospital group with the largest share," say Drs. Vincent and Quijano.
The Spanish group most active
Also, Drs. Quijano Vincent and have been named responsible for the Spanish chapter of the CRSA, "is a recognition of the work done in the four years we have been performing robotic surgery. We have been the last to arrive and this time we have reached a place of authentic privilege. The purpose of this appointment is to promote and enhance the activity in Robotic Surgery within our specialty, general surgery, "they conclude
