It was determined that a 15-year-old high school student who applied to Ege University (EU) Medical Faculty (EUTF) Hospital with the complaint of abdominal pain had a cyst in his spleen. Surgery was decided to remove the cyst. Ege University Faculty of Medicine (EUTF) Department of Pediatric Surgery Lecturer Assoc. Dr. Emre Divarcı and his team successfully removed the cyst with robotic surgery. In the statement made by Ege University, Assoc. Dr. Visiting Divarcı, EU Rector Prof. Dr. Necdet Budak said, “Our instructors are making important success stories in many fields. Our teachers, who performed robotic spleen cyst surgery, broke new ground in the world. We are proud of our doctors. Ege University successfully performs important surgeries in many fields in the field of health. As Ege University, we continue on our way by providing the best facilities in terms of tools and equipment in line with the possibilities of our state. Our aim is to provide the highest quality health service to our people. I wish our patient well and congratulate our teachers for their success.

” A risky surgery Stating that congenital spleen cysts can be seen in children, EUTF Pediatric Surgery Department Lecturer Assoc. Dr. Emre Divarcı said, “If these cysts are not intervened, long-term risks such as cancer, infection or bleeding may occur. So we had to intervene. The cyst had to be surgically removed; However, since the spleen is a very well-blooded organ and there is a high risk of bleeding during surgery, it is in the risky category. For this reason, part or all of the spleen must be removed in order to completely remove the cyst. In order not to remove the entire spleen, it may be possible to leave a part of the cyst. Robotic surgery has given us a great advantage in this regard. The region is a hard-to-reach area. We can also perform these surgeries with the methods we call laparoscopy, but the probability of recurrence may increase due to both the difficulty in reaching and the risk of bleeding. We can reach this area much better in robotic surgery. The camera provides 3D vision. It enables us to perform safer surgery. It also enlarges the image 16 times, which is very important for patient safety. Surgically, the robotic arm can rotate 540 degrees. In this way, it provides the opportunity to work in difficult areas in a very ergonomic way. We wanted to use the advantages of robotic surgery in this patient," he said.

"According to the scientific publications we follow, the surgery was the first robotic cyst surgery in our country and in the world" Noting that EU is a leading institution in robotic surgery, Assoc. Dr. Divarcı said, “As Ege University Department of Pediatric Surgery, we are taking firm steps forward in robotic surgery. We are gaining more experience in this regard. The surgery we performed was the first robotic cyst surgery in our country and in the world, according to the scientific publications we follow. We are proud of it. We successfully completed this surgery with robotic surgery. Post-surgery was also uneventful. We did not find any cyst findings in the controls, everything seems fine. Normally, in open surgery, a large incision of 15-20 centimeters had to be made to reach the spleen of our patient. There would be a big scar on his stomach. We performed this surgery with small incisions of 8 millimeters. This provided a great cosmetic benefit for the child in the post-operative period, as well as significantly reducing pain complaints. This girl is a high school student. She went back to school very quickly, she. This could have been weeks to months in open surgery,” she said.
