State-of-the-art lecture Robot and children: Special care
 M. De Gennaro, Rome (IT)
Aims and objectives of this presentation

Robot-assisted surgery has been one of the major innovations introduced to pediatric surgeons. The first series was published in 2001.The more frequent procedures are Pyeloplasty and Funduplication (collectively 46% of overall volume). The robot is definitely more helpful than laparoscopy for complex reconstructive procedures: ileocystoplasty with Mitrofanoff appendicovesicostomy are feasible, even if the instrument isn’t suited for pediatric patients in its current form. It has been calculated that in pediatric urology a volume of 100-150 procedures/year is needed to balance revenues and costs.
