Since there is no abstract available we provide the first paragraph.

Minimally invasive approaches such as laparoscopic or robotic surgery have changed surgical practice. Indeed, two decades after the introduction of laparoscopic surgery and a decade after the approval of the Da Vinci Surgical System (DVSS), minimally invasive approaches progressively replace traditional open surgery. The potential advantages of minimally invasive over open surgery include greater precision, lower error rates, reduced bleeding, shorter hospital stays, more rapid patient recovery, and reduced pain [1-3].
