Abstract

Pancreatic tumor enucleation is a procedure that can preserve pancreatic function and is sometimes performed using a minimally invasive approach. Recently, a single-port robotic platform called da Vinci SP has been developed. However, the technical details of pancreatic tumor enucleation using da Vinci SP have not been reported to date. We report a male patient in his 70s who underwent robotic SP pancreatic tumor enucleation for a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor. The dissection between the tumor and pancreatic parenchyma was performed using the double bipolar technique. The operative time was 139 min, and the estimated blood loss was 4 mL. The patient had an uneventful recovery and was discharged on the sixth day after the surgery. Robotic SP pancreatic tumor enucleation appears to be a feasible procedure with lower invasiveness and better cosmesis.
