Abstract

Purpose: Our objective was to determine the efficacy of computer-assisted robotic laparoscopic Heller myotomy. Methods: A 76-year-old woman with a significant history of achalasia was evaluated for laparoscopic Heller myotomy. The daVinci(TM) surgical system was used throughout the procedure. Results: Computer assistance allowed scaling of hand motions from a range of 2:1 to 5:1. Successful dissection of the esophageal musculature was accomplished, and a Toupet-type fundoplication was performed. The patient was discharged from the hospital the day after surgery with five port incisions,each < 1 cm. Conclusions: Telemanipulator computer-assisted surgical devices may have applications in procedures that require advanced and finely tuned motions, such as Heller myotomy. The benefits of extra magnification and three-dimensional imaging can help prevent esophageal perforation and identify residualcircular muscle fibers.
