Closing

The robotic instruments and camera are removed from the ports and the robot is dedocked. The first assistant places the camera through the lateral 12 mm port and grasps the endocatch string through the 12 mm umbilical port. Once the string is secured with a clamp, a 15 French Jackson-Pratt drain1 is placed through the left-sided 5 mm port under visualization. Next, the ports are removed under direct vision to assess for bleeding and the umbilical port site is enlarged to allow removal of the specimen. The fascia is closed with 1-0 Ethibond™ on a CTX needle. The skin is closed with 4-0 Vicryl subcuticular sutures.
