ROBOTIC RESECTION OF A MESENTERIC INFLAMMATORY PSEUDOTUMOR: A NOVEL APPROACH

Inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) is a rare chronic inflammatory process morphologically difficult to discern from a neoplasm. Mesenteric IPTs reportedly required laparotomy due to size and proximity to vascular structures. We present a case of a 42 yr old male with an incidentally found mesenteric IPT abutting the uncinate process and partially encasing the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). He underwent successful robotic en bloc resection of the right colon and mass while preserving the SMA. The robotic approach, with its advantages of 3-D visualization, articulating instruments, and natural hand-eye coordination, allows for safe and complete resection of IPTs in a minimally invasive fashion.
