A surgical robot in China's Guangdong province successfully carried out a kidney surgery on a six-year-old boy, a media report said on Friday.

在中国广东,一个外科手术机器人成功地对一个六岁的小男孩实施了肾脏手术。

The surgery was carried out in the First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou city on November 16, the People's Daily reported.

据《人民日报》报道,手术是11月16日在位于广州的中山大学第一附属医院进行。

Hospital authorities on Thursday said it is the very first robotic surgery performed on a child in the region.

院方表示,这是在该地区第一次为儿童进行的机器人手术。

The child was diagnosed with severe left kidney hydronephrosis — severe swelling of the kidney due to failure of normal drainage of urine to the bladder.

孩子被诊断为严重的左肾积水——由于对尿液正常引流失败导致的膀胱肾脏严重肿胀。

As the boy was old enough and his symptoms were clear-cut, the hospital decided to employ the da Vinci Surgical System, using robotic manipulators.

因为男孩已经六岁,而且症状是明确的,医院决定采用达尔文手术机器人系统来操作机器人手术。、。

During the surgery, the surgeon sat behind the screen with a magnified view of the surgical site and operated the machine's arms. The system is hailed for its precision.

在手术中,外科医生坐在屏幕后面,通过放大的手术部位的视图,来操作机器的手臂。该系统以其精确度而知名。

The surgery was completed within two hours and 20 minutes, one hour less than normal laparoscopic surgeries.

手术均在2小时20分钟内完成,比平时的腹腔镜手术缩短了一个小时。

达芬奇手术机器人

达芬奇机器人手术系统以麻省理工学院(原名斯坦福研究学院)研发的机器人外科手术技术为基础。Intuitive Surgical随后与IBM、麻省理工学院和Heartport公司联手对该系统进行了进一步开发。FDA已经批准将达芬奇机器人手术系统用于成人和儿童的普通外科、胸外科、泌尿外科、妇产科、头颈外科以及心脏手术。达芬奇外科手术系统是一种高级机器人平台,其设计的理念是通过使用微创的方法,实施复杂的外科手术。
简单地说,达芬奇机器人就是高级的腹腔镜系统。大家可能对现在流行的微创治疗手段如:胸腔镜、腹腔镜、妇科腔镜等有所了解,达芬奇机器人进行手术操作的时候也需要机械臂穿过胸部、腹壁。
