VILLAVICENCIO MAVRICH, H.. Da Vinci advanced robotic laparoscopic surgery: origin and current clinical application in urology, and comparison with open and laparoscopic surgery. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2006, vol.30, n.1, pp.1-12. ISSN 0210-4806.

Over the last decade, open surgery, which is able to perform large extirpations and repairs of fragile tissues, is gradually being substituted with laparoscopic surgery due to the high benefits the latter entails for the patients, an also due to the learning difficulties for surgeons who must make up for such deficiencies applying higher efforts and a larger amount of stress. Robotic surgery stands in for the limitations of conventional laparoscopic surgery by means of performing more ergonomic and more accurate surgeries, particularly in the case of the most complex and difficult to access operations, such as radical prostatectomy. This review will perform a reminder of the history and clinical applications of new advanced and robotic technologies, and also a comparison with open surgery and conventional laparoscopy.
