Abstract

This study found that robotic and telerobotic operations were accomplished with the same mortality, morbidity, blood loss, length of operations and length of stay. The DaVinci operations required longer total operating room time than the AESOP operations. Telerobotic laparoscopic cholecystectomy achieved the same clinical outcomes as standard robotic laparoscopic cholecystectomy in this small trial. This study justifies further comparison of these techniques in a randomized prospective trial.
