Doctors of St. Nicholas hospital in Lviv successfully treated vascular defect in kidneys of 8-year-old girl Maryna, Life Pravda writes.

The robot allows to perform difficult surgery, like in this case, without human penetration to the body but making only a three small openings instead, through which a camera and necessary instruments penetrate.

In order to perform the intervention as safely and minimally as possible, they decided to use the Da Vinci robot surgeon, – doctors explain. – The surgeons reached the abdominal cavity through three small punctures. They introduced a video camera there and isolated the collecting system of the kidney. They saw that a part of the renal vessels was pressing heavily on the urinary tract.
