Since the first robotic case in 1999 with the da Vinci® system, Intuitive Surgical has created three different surgical platforms: the da Vinci Standard, the S and the Si. This presentation first reviews the latest da Vinci® system and instrumentation: the simulator, firefly, suction-irrigation, and the vessel-sealer. It then moves on to show upcoming instruments (the linear stapler) and introduces the possible future application of medical imaging agents (non-specific to the robot). As this presentation was made within the context of the RAMSES congress, a few slides show ongoing work specific to “shallow procedures” as well as ongoing research in that field.
