Robotic assisted surgery is the most rapidly developing field of minimally invasive surgery. Its wide diffusion has led to the development and standardization of robotic-assisted approaches also for adrenalectomy. In this study, we present the first five robotic-assisted lateral transabdominal adrenalectomies performed with the new Hugo RAS™ system (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN, USA). After an official training course of the surgical team, five consecutive patients scheduled for unilateral adrenalectomy, underwent robotic-assisted operations in our institution. Patients that were candidates for partial adrenalectomy were excluded. A description of the operating theatre, robotic arms and docking setup is provided. Four female and one male patient underwent lateral transabdominal adrenalectomy, three for lesions on the left side and two on the right. Median lesion size was 3.9 cm (range: 30–90) and preoperative diagnosis was Cushing’s syndrome in three patients, an adrenal cystic lesion and a pheochromocytoma. The median docking time was 5 min (range: 5–8) and the median console time was 55 min (range: 29–108). Procedures were performed without intraoperative complications and no conversions or additional ports were needed. System’s function and docking were uneventful. Based on our initial experience, adrenalectomy with the Hugo™ system is feasible. This study provides technical notes for other centres that wish to perform robotic-assisted adrenalectomies with the Hugo™ RAS as well as general information and our preliminary insights on this new platform.

Abstract

Robotic assisted surgery is the most rapidly developing field of minimally invasive surgery. Its wide diffusion has led to the development and standardization of robotic-assisted approaches also for adrenalectomy. In this study, we present the first five robotic-assisted lateral transabdominal adrenalectomies performed with the new Hugo RAS™ system (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN, USA). After an official training course of the surgical team, five consecutive patients scheduled for unilateral adrenalectomy, underwent robotic-assisted operations in our institution. Patients that were candidates for partial adrenalectomy were excluded. A description of the operating theatre, robotic arms and docking setup is provided. Four female and one male patient underwent lateral transabdominal adrenalectomy, three for lesions on the left side and two on the right. Median lesion size was 3.9 cm (range: 30–90) and preoperative diagnosis was Cushing’s syndrome in three patients, an adrenal cystic lesion and a pheochromocytoma. The median docking time was 5 min (range: 5–8) and the median console time was 55 min (range: 29–108). Procedures were performed without intraoperative complications and no conversions or additional ports were needed. System’s function and docking were uneventful. Based on our initial experience, adrenalectomy with the Hugo™ system is feasible. This study provides technical notes for other centres that wish to perform robotic-assisted adrenalectomies with the Hugo™ RAS as well as general information and our preliminary insights on this new platform.
