Resumen

SANTA MARIA H, Pablo  y  SANTA MARIA M, Pablo. Use of robot-assisted surgery in otorhinolaryngology. Rev. Otorrinolaringol. Cir. Cabeza Cuello [online]. 2008, vol.68, n.1, pp.73-79. ISSN 0718-4816.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48162008000100011.

The introduction of minimally invasive robot-assisted endoscopic procedures has led to great advances in general surgery, allowing the performance of complex procedures by laparoscopy or thoracoscopy The main advantages of these systems are stereoscopic vision and motion precision and versatility comparable, and sometimes even superior, to open procedures. Although there are limitations when acting on confined spaces, as is the case in head and neck surgery, the advantages over conventional endoscopy have permitted the expansion of robot-assisted surgery to our field. To date, there have been reports of procedures as complex as selective neck dissection, supraglottic laryngectomy and base of tongue surgery. These reports are the first steps of the development of robot-assisted surgery on ENT and head and neck surgery, a field that will evolve tremendously when the robotic instrumentation is designed specifically for it

Palabras clave : Robot-assisted surgery; da Vinci surgical robot; transoral robotic surgery; minimally invasive surgery.
