Single-Site da Vinci ®Surgery

da Vinci® Single-Site® Surgery enables surgeons to operate through a small incision in the patient’s belly button to remove the gallbladder or uterus. The end result: virtually scarless surgery.

Single-Site Port

1. The five-lumen port provides access for two Single-Site Instruments: the 8.5 mm 3DHD endoscope, a 5/10 mm accessory port and insufflation adaptor.
2. Pliable architecture accommodates variable patient anatomy and enables simple and safe entry into a 2.0-2.5 cm incision.
3. Marked lumens on the port provide guidance for proper set-up and remote center placement.

Curved 5 mm Instrument Cannulae

1. Specifically designed to optimize triangulation toward the target anatomy and provide an unobstructed view of the surgical field.
2. Curved architecture separates the instrument arms outside the body wall, maximizing range of motion and minimizing potential internal and external crowding.

5 mm Semi-Rigid Instruments

1. Designed with the flexibility to go through curved cannulae and the rigidity to retract tissue.
2. A full instrument suite is available.

Single-Site Configuration

1. Compatible with the da Vinci Si Surgical System.
2. Instruments and camera cross within the Single-Site port and use remote center technology to avoid cannula collisions, arm interferences and port-site movement.
3. da Vinci System software automatically detects and re-associates the user's hands with the instrument tips to create Intuitive® movement through crossed cannulae.

da Vinci® Surgery with Single-Site® instrumentation is cleared for use in gallbladder removal, and for hysterectomy and ovary removal for benign conditions. Patients who bleed easily, have abnormal blood clotting, are pregnant or morbidly obese are not candidates for minimally invasive surgery, including da Vinci® Surgery with Single-Site Instruments. Research suggests there may be an increased risk of incision-site hernia with single-incision surgery.

PN 876747 Rev A 12/12

Serious complications may occur in any surgery, including da Vinci® Surgery, up to and including death. Examples of serious or life-threatening complications, which may require prolonged and/or unexpected hospitalization and/or reoperation, include but are not limited to, one or more of the following: injury to tissues/organs, bleeding, infection and internal scarring that can cause long-lasting dysfunction/pain. Risks of surgery also include the potential for equipment failure and/or human error. Individual surgical results may vary.

Risks specific to minimally invasive surgery, including da Vinci Surgery, include but are not limited to, one or more of the following: temporary pain/nerve injury associated with positioning; temporary pain/discomfort from the use of air or gas in the procedure; a longer operation and time under anesthesia and conversion to another surgical technique. If your doctor needs to convert the surgery to another surgical technique, this could result in a longer operative time, additional time under anesthesia, additional or larger incisions and/or increased complications.

Patients who are not candidates for non-robotic minimally invasive surgery are also not candidates for da Vinci® Surgery. Patients should talk to their doctor to decide if da Vinci Surgery is right for them. Patients and doctors should review all available information on non-surgical and surgical options in order to make an informed decision.
