Robotic Assisted Urologic Procedures
Urologists performing single-port robot assisted surgery depend on VTI’s Remotely Operated Suction Irrigation System (ROSI) to provide flexible suction and irrigation in these challenging procedures. Single-port robotic surgery allows Urologists to perform minimally invasive surgery through a single incision; however, rigid suction irrigation probes cannot be effectively angulated or manipulated within such narrow surgical fields.
The ROSI system with its flexible 24-inch suction irrigation probe allows for optimal angulation and improved reach within single-port robotic cases. The flexible probe can be inserted directly through the access gel port or placed through a port used for insufflation. The distal tip of the probe is then manipulated with the robotic instruments; suction and irrigation are activated using a foot pedal. ROSI has become a critical device in the toolbox of urologists performing single-port robotic surgery.
ROSI in Single Port Robotic Surgery
– Single port robotic prostatectomy
– Single port robotic partial nephrectomy
– Single port robotic nephrectomy
– Single port robotic pyeloplasty
– Eliminates need for a “plus one” port in single port robotic procedures
– Can be inserted directly through Gel Point access platform
– Increases surgeon autonomy via direct robotic control of suction and irrigation
– Slim, flexible profile allows ROSI to be dropped into and remain within the surgical field
– Flexible design, longer probe working length equals more access in surgical field
Clinical Studies Demonstrate:
– Surgeon-controlled suction [during robotic prostatectomy] allowed more surgeon autonomy without a negative impact on efficiency or safety issues requiring “bailout” suctioning by the bedside assistant whether urgent or otherwise.1
– During robotic prostatectomy, when historically compared to cases in which suction was provided by the bedside assistant (BAS), the mean operative time in cases where ROSI was used for suction and irrigation was shorter than in BAS group (149min vs 156 min, p<0.001).1

Vascular & General
VTI’s 8 MHz TQI Doppler System allows for optimized evaluation of intraoperative and transcutaneous blood flow, providing real time information.
VTI’s TQI Doppler System provides a reliable and cost-effective solution for locating perforators in free flap surgeries, as well as evaluating flap vessels and anastomoses intraoperatively.
VTI’s 20 MHz Microvascular Doppler System can identify and preserve the testicular artery while allowing veins to be safely tied off during the varicocele repair.
VTI’s Selectable Depth Doppler System is a sound breakthrough in the endoscopic treatment of acute peptic ulcer hemorrhag; it incorporates a probe that can be passed down a 2.8mm endoscope channel.
