Abstract

Introduction: Despite the potential advantages in terms of microdissection and microsuturing capabilites, the robotic approach for borderline resectable pancreatic cancer is scarcely reported. Methods: We report our technique for a robotic-assisted pancreaticoduodenectomy with tangential Portal/ Superior Mesenteric Vein resection/reconstruction (RPD PV/SMV).We also compared the surgical outcomes of eight consecutive patients undergoing RPD PV/SMV with that of sixty patients who underwent robotic-assisted pancreaticoduodenectomy (RPD) in the same period of time. Results: A total of eight consecutive patients underwent RPD PV/SMV. We observed an increased estimated blood loss (550 vs 280 mL, p = 0.003) and operative time (438 vs 350 min, p = 0.002) in the RPD PV/SMV group of patients compared with RPD group, whereas the complication rate (28% vs 31%, p = 0.726) was similar. No venous-congestion related complications were observed in the postoperative course. The median length of hospital stay was similar in the RPD group in comparison to that in the RPD PV/SMV group (10 vs 13 range 6-19 days, p = 0.313). Conclusion: RPD PV/SMV is a challenging operation. It is associated with higher operative time and increased estimated blood loss in comparison to standard RPD.
