There is some evidence that robotic cholecystectomy may decrease minor biliary injuries, open conversion rates, and mean blood loss compared with laparoscopic cholecystectomy.Gangemi A, Danilkowicz R, Elli FE, et al. Could ICG-aided robotic cholecystectomy reduce the rate of open conversion reported with laparoscopic approach? A head to head comparison of the largest single institution studies. J Robot Surg. 2017 Mar;11(1):77-82.
However, other studies have not found any benefit in surgical outcomes with the robotic approach.Lim C, Bou Nassif G, Lahat E, et al. Single-incision robotic cholecystectomy is associated with a high rate of trocar-site infection. Int J Med Robot. 2017 Dec;13(4).
