Come to think of it, Da Vinci is truly a state of the art device. If only these horrible possibilities of adverse events which I have read at http://www.rotlaw.com/da-vinci-surgical-syste... could be prevented, it would have been great.Be it traditional or robotic, surgical procedures are risky. As for the alleged flaws of the machine, hopefully it can be corrected and improved.
