Abstract
The present Thesis explores the theoretical background and practical implementation of Robotic Pancreatic Surgery, with a particular reference to the assessment of the learning curves and the thorough description of novel minimally invasive techniques.<br> <br>Firstly, the dissertation recapitulates the anatomy and embryology of the pancreatic gland under the lens of the Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary (HPB) surgeon. Secondly, the hallmarks of pancreatic cancer are examined, including early diagnosis, imaging and staging. Thirdly, technically demanding and challenging robotic pancreatic surgeries are introduced, with an unprecedented light on complications and outcomes. Finally, the learning curves of robot-assisted complex pancreatic resections have been characterized with an innovative combination of powerful statistical and bioinformatic tools.
