Implementation of the Versius Surgical System in Complex Abdominal Wall Repair: First Reported Case of an Robotic ETEP/TAR Procedure.

BACKGROUND: Robotic ventral hernia repair has been increasing globally, with comparable outcomes to laparoscopic repair and lower rates of conversion to open surgery. Robotic surgery is increasing in popularity, and there is a number of new robotic systems entering the marketing. We report the first case of a Roboic eTEP using the Versius robotic system in a patient with an incisional hernia.

METHODS: Surgery was performed using the Versius system from CMR surgical which consists of bedside units for each instrument and a console. The patient presented with an incisional hernia measuring 9.5×5 cm in the left flank.

RESULTS: The patient was discharged on postoperative day (POD) 2 with a drain. There was no need for opioids. The drain was removed at POD 7. The patient presented at POD 10 with erythema and cellulitis in the area that previously had tape on it, and it was resolved with a short course of oral antibiotics.

CONCLUSION: The eTEP technique for hernia surgery was safe and feasible using the Versius robotic system. Implementation is possible in experienced hands with minimal changes to the surgical techniques.
