Retrospective Study on Colorectal Robotic Surgery Results Obtained Using a New Robotic Platform

2017-04-27 08:53:21 | BioPortfolio


The ALF-X (Advanced Laparoscopy through Force reflection) Robotic Surgery System is a medical device that is available for distribution in the EU (European Union) under CE Mark for use in general surgery, thoracic surgery, gynecological surgery and urological surgery. The main research question is to assess, from a retrospective poit of view, the safety and feasibility of this new robotic platform in the colorectal surgery.


The rationale of this study is to investigate the perioperative and the short term perioperative outcomes of this new robotic Platform in minimally invasive colorectal surgery. Tha ALF-X utilizes fully reusable along with haptic feedback and an innovative vision control system.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A surgical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and abnormalities of the colon, rectum, and anal canal.

Clusters of colonic crypts that appear different from the surrounding mucosa when visualized after staining. They are of interest as putative precursors to colorectal adenomas and potential biomarkers for colorectal carcinoma.

Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 5q21 region on the long arm of human chromosome 5. The mutation of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (MCC stands for mutated in colorectal cancer).

Tumor suppressor genes located in the 18q21-qter region of human chromosome 18. The absence of these genes is associated with the formation of colorectal cancer (DCC stands for deleted in colorectal cancer). The products of these genes show significant homology to neural cell adhesion molecules and other related cell surface glycoproteins.
