Robotic Assisted Kidney Transplant- Complications

 

Dr. Himanshu Sharma presented this KS National Robotic Surgery Awards video as a finalist at the Robotic Surgeons Council of India.  Here it is followed by the group discussion of his project.  Robotic assisted kidney transplantation (RAKT) has recently been introduced as a management option for patients with end stage renal disease. While open kidney transplant (OKT) remains the gold standard, RAKT is increasingly being adopted across the world as a technique with equivalent outcomes and lesser complications especially for the obese patient. The challenges encountered during the performance of vascular anastomosis owing to multiple renal vessels and right-sided renal allograft transplant (short renal vein) are potential reasons for non-selection of patients for RAKT as well as open conversion.  Narrated Robotic Surgery Video, with PPTs, photos, CT scans, and discussion 10:40
