In this live educational video, Dr. Vieira d'Almeida outlines surgical pitfalls when performing a 5-port Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) using the da Vinci Xi™ robotic surgical system (Intuitive Surgical). During the video, a comparison is made with other robotic platforms (e.g. da Vinci Si™ system) regarding trocar placement, robotic docking, dexterity, instruments quality, and the introduction of fluorescence systems. Technical steps are provided to create a RYGB with a 100cm alimentary limb and a 150cm biliary limb, transection of the greater omentum, Petersen’s defect and mesenteric defect closure, which are performed routinely.
