Brachial plexus surgery using the da Vinci® surgical robot is a new procedure. To understand the limits of this technique, a cadaveric study was put together at the EEC (Ecole Européenne de Chirurgie) anatomy lab in Paris (France). Supraclavicular and axillary approaches have been studied. It was found that the supraclavicular approach is suitable for upper roots and the axillary approach is suitable for lower roots, and particularly for thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). Advantages and disadvantages are discussed in this presentation.
