Background: To date, robotic surgery in urology is well established all over the world. The newest platform on the market is the HUGO (TM) RAS system, developed by Medtronic.

Abstract

Background: To date, robotic surgery in urology is well established all over the world. The newest platform on the market is the HUGO (TM) RAS system, developed by Medtronic. In this paper we provide a brief description of the system and describe our system set-up and surgical approach with this new platform in our initial experience of robotic radical prostatectomy (RARP) series.Materials and methods: After an official training, seven consecutive patients affected by localized prostate cancer underwent RARP with HUGO (TM) RAS system at our Institution. A description of our surgical approach and docking setup is provided. Docking and console times were reported for all precedures together with main suggestions to facilitate the use of this new system at the beginning of the experience.Results: Our operating room setup has shown to be safe, effective, and easy replicable. During our series, operative times appeared to be easy reproducible and comparable to those obtained with daVinci system. No major system faults and conflicts between robotic arms were observed after the first procedure.Conclusions: Our surgical approach and system configuration for performing RARP with the new HUGO (TM) RAS system appears to be safe, efficient and easy reproducible.
