Robotic Ileocecal Resection with Enterovesicular Fistula Takedown

Timothy Feldmann, Jason Weiss, Andreas Kaiser. USC

This video shows a robotic ileocecal resection in conjunction with a takedown of an enterovesicular fistula.  The patient had a three year history of fistulizing Crohn's disease and suffered from fecaluria and pneumaturia along with recurrent urinary tract infections.  The video displays the dissection along with reconstruction using an intracorporeal anastomosis.  Robotic techniques are feasible for use in treating inflammatory bowel disease.
