The robot has 7 degrees of freedom and can rotate the wrist, which can filter the hand vibration during direct operation.

Yesterday, Xi, the first fourth-generation Da Vinci surgical robot in the mainland, successfully completed a partial nephrectomy in the First Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing University, which means that the surgical robot officially “works” in the hospital. It is understood that the Da Vinci surgical robot can increase the scope of the surgical field of vision, and has fluorescence development technology, with higher image quality.

Operation:Robot completed successfullyA case of partial nephrectomy

Yesterday, Xi, the first fourth-generation Da Vinci surgical robot in the mainland, successfully completed a partial nephrectomy in the First Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing University, which means that the surgical robot officially “works” in the hospital.

According to reports, the 70 year old patient who underwent partial nephrectomy was found to have a left renal tumor and needed to be removed by surgery. At noon yesterday, after a series of preoperative preparations and the final commissioning of the fourth generation Da Vinci surgical robot Xi, patients and surgical robots were pushed into the operation room together. After waiting for more than one hour, the operation was a complete success. “With the operation of the fourth generation Da Vinci surgical robot Xi, the operation time is shortened and the damage to the patient’s body is smaller.” Wang Gongxian, chief physician of Urology, introduced to the reporter.

Advantages:Clear vision, flexible operation,It also saves labor

The reporter learned from the hospital that the Da Vinci surgical robot can provide a clear and enlarged 3D vision, increase the effective range of surgical vision, and have fluorescence development technology. The improvement of image quality will help to improve the quality of surgery and ensure the safety of patients.

The operating arm of the robot is smaller than that of the human hand. It also has 7 degrees of freedom and can rotate the wrist. It can filter the hand vibration during the direct operation. The operation in the narrow cavity is more flexible, accurate and has a wide range of operation. It improves the stitching technology under the endoscope. Moreover, the operator can sit to complete the operation, which is not easy to fatigue, and can be more relaxed when completing the complex operation with long time and high difficulty. “For this reason, 2-3 Assistants Needed for traditional laparoscopic or open surgery can be saved.” Director Wang introduced.

So, what kind of operation can Leonardo do? According to Director Wang, based on the application scope and technical characteristics of the Da Vinci surgical robot, all the operations that can be performed in the basic traditional way can be completed by the Da Vinci surgical robot.

“At present, there are many departments using da Vinci surgical robot for surgery in China, such as general surgery, Urology, obstetrics and Gynecology, cardiac surgery, etc., which have more clinical data. However, most studies have found that the effect of robot surgery is not much different from that of traditional laparoscopic surgery Wang explained that the Da Vinci surgical robot has obvious advantages when it comes to the requirements of small operation space, difficult identification of anatomical structure, accurate separation and protection of small nerves.

In addition, Da Vinci surgical robot also has great advantages in gastrointestinal surgery, especially in suture. “With the coming of 5g era, the long-distance advantages of Da Vinci surgical robot will be fully reflected, and the long-distance operation will be realized in the near future.” Said director Wang.
