At the end of 2019, our hospital formally introduced the world's most advanced minimally invasive surgical platform,\" Da Vinci surgical robot \", after the previous period of debugging, trial, robot equipment has officially served clinical. The use of the world's latest fourth generation \"da Vinci surgical robot\" marks a new era for minimally invasive surgery in our hospital. Before da Vinci surgery robot has been used in cardiothoracic surgery digital patients surgery, have achieved good results.
On January 2, the Malimin team used the Da Vinci surgery robot to complete the more difficult \"radical prostatectomy\" in urological surgery. Prostate cancer is a high incidence among middle-aged and elderly men, and it is the most common malignant tumor in cancer studies in developed countries such as Europe and the United States. In China, the blood screening of prostate tumors (PSA) has been listed as a routine medical examination program for men over 45 years of age.
Prostate cancer, with bladder cancer and kidney cancer, as three common malignant tumors of urology, its operation is relatively difficult, the operation needs free pelvic floor space, and the pelvic floor vein plexus is rich in blood, slightly careless, easy to bleed, affecting the operation. After removing the prostate tumor, the surgeon also needs to anastomose the urethra and bladder, the pelvic space is narrow, which increases the difficulty of surgery. The use of da Vinci surgical robot, because its manipulator can rotate 360 degrees, mechanical forceps flexible, suitable for pelvic surgery, can increase the operator's ease of operation, thus solving more difficult, higher risk of surgery.
Professor malimin's robot surgery team, the first urology team in tongcheng to carry out robotic surgery, not afraid of difficulties, dare to challenge, the first battle to choose the \"prostate cancer radical\" this difficult surgery. This patient, PSA20ng\/ml, belongs to the high risk prostate cancer, and the patient is 76 years old, the operation risk is higher. Under malimin's operation, the robot arm is like a dancer struggling with the disease, smooth and flexible, the whole operation process is smooth, the patient's vital signs during the operation are stable, the amount of blood loss is very small, no blood transfusion, the patient immediately returned to the ward after anaesthesia recovery.
In operating room 8, the author sees Malimin sitting in front of a console more than two meters from the operating table, putting his thumb and middle finger of both hands into the finger sleeve, controlling two sensitive operating rods and two buttons, and his feet controlling seven pedals, which control the surgical lens, electric knife, electrocoagulation hemostasis and so on, respectively. \"Robot surgery is less traumatic and recovers more quickly than conventional surgery. But it's very demanding and requires a high degree of coordination of hands and feet, and the operator looks a bit like playing the piano, but unlike playing the piano, the doctor's hands and feet are connected to the patient's life. Cai Bo, deputy chief physician who assisted in the operation, said.
Recently, our hospital has successfully performed three cases of urological surgery da Vinci robot minimally invasive surgery, which also represents Tongcheng urological surgery has entered a new era of robot surgery, is our hospital with the top hospitals at home and abroad medical level, but also the gospel of Tongcheng people.
