Abstract

Advancement in both surgical technique and medical equipment has enabled solo surgery. ViKY(®) Endoscope Positioning System (ViKY(®)) is a robotic system that remotely controls an endoscope and provides direct vision control to the surgeon. Here, we report our experience with ViKY(®)-assisted solo surgery. We retrospectively examined 25 cases of solo surgery TAPP with ViKY(®). ViKY(®) was setup by the surgeon alone, and the setup duration was determined as the time at which the side rail was positioned and that when the endoscope was installed. For assessing the control unit, the number of false movements was counted. We compared the operative results between ViKY(®)-assisted solo surgery TAPP and the conventional method with an assistant. The average time to set up ViKY(®) was 7.9 min. The average number of commands for ViKY(®) during surgery was 98.3, and the average number of errors and no response of control unit was 7.9. The mean duration of surgery was 136 min for the ViKY(®) group, including the setup time, and 117 min for the conventional method. No case required an assistant during the operation. There was also no difference between the two groups with regard to postoperative complications and the rate of recurrence. ViKY(®) proved reliable in recognizing orders with very few failures, and the operations were performed safely and were comparable to the conventional operations with assistants. Solo surgery with ViKY(®) was beneficial in this clinical evaluation.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 29 July 2017.
All research outputs
#10,840,458
of 12,229,156 outputs
Outputs from Surgical Endoscopy
#3,338
of 3,571 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#222,662
of 268,458 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Surgical Endoscopy
#216
of 235 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,229,156 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,571 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.6. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 268,458 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 235 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
