Background: Many studies have shown the operative feasibility and safety of robotic thyroidectomy. However, there is still a concern on the operative invasiveness of robotic thyroidectomy owing to the wide flap dissection. The aim of this study was to introduce our novel robotic technique, which can minimize the dissection extent using the da Vinci SP robotic system. Methods: Ten patients underwent robotic transaxillary thyroidectomy using the da Vinci SP robotic system between December 2018 and April 2019 at Yonsei University Hospital (Seoul, Korea). All procedures were performed successfully using the single-port robotic system. Results: All 10 patients were women and diagnosed with papillary thyroid carcinoma. The mean operative time was 148.7 ± 26.8 minutes. The mean operative time using the gasless method was shorter than that using the gas insufflation method (130.5 ± 14.1 vs 176.0 ± 12.8 minutes). All patients were discharged on the third day after operation without any complications. Conclusions: Robotic transaxillary thyroidectomy using the da Vinci SP robotic system is technically feasible and safe with a short length of incision, shorter than what earlier reported. To our knowledge, this is the first study to use a single-port robotic system for thyroidectomy. To verify the superior operative outcomes, further clinical trials are necessary.
