Robotic assisted laparoscopy pyeloplasty (RALP) has been associated with shorter recovery, less pain and improved cosmesis. To minimize visible scars, the hidden incision endoscopic surgery (HIdES) trocar placement has been previously developed. Our aim was to compare outcomes between the HIdES and traditional port placement (TPP) for pediatric RAL...


... Recently, robot-assisted laparoscopic single-port pyeloplasty has shown to be feasible in noninfant pediatric patients [27,28]. Of note, new hidden incision endoscopic surgery (HIdES) technique aims to eliminate visible scarring, placing the robotic working port and camera port below the line of a Pfannenstiel incision, while a second working port is placed infraumbilically [29]. A recent comparative cross-sectional study [30] using da Vinci Xi Surgical System® compared the efficacy, safety, and cosmetic outcomes of three-port RALP with the conventional fourport RALP method, showing that the first can be applied with similar success and safety to the latter in all patients, including infants. ...
