Professor Joachim W. Thüroff: Applications and advantages of the daVinci® robotic surgical system in the field of urology

The Urology Department at Mainz University Medical Centre is highly experienced in performing operations using the daVinci® robotic surgical system. Professor Thüroff and his team have been using the system on a routine basis since 2007. Professor Thüroff is highly regarded around the world as a specialist surgeon for treating cancers of the kidneys, bladder and prostate.

Urology covers a broad spectrum of different operations, ranging from oncological surgery to reconstructive procedures. The Urology Department and Clinic at Mainz University Medical Centre offers the full range of treatments in this field. In recent years, there has been an increasing trend towards keeping surgical scars as small as possible and trauma to a minimum whilst maintaining a high rate of success and low rate of complications. The minimally invasive method (‘keyhole surgery’) is now a firmly established part of the urological spectrum and is always the preferred option for any operation whenever possible.

Mainz’s Urology Department has performed laparoscopies since 2002 and robot-assisted laparoscopies using the daVinci® system since 2007. This type of minimally invasive surgery is now an integral part of the urological surgeon’s armament and is used to treat conditions affecting almost all organs of the urinary tract.

Tumours of the kidney can be removed using minimally invasive, organ-preserving techniques; for patients suffering from prostate cancer it is often possible to carry out daVinci® prostatectomies in a way that maintains potency. Even for benign enlargements (where the prostate weighs over 100 grams) it makes sense to enucleate the gland using the robotic system. The system can also help to remove large stones in the ureter and to reconstruct the ureter in cases of constrictions (‘nephropyeloplasty’). It is also possible to correct a prolapsed bladder and diverticula (outward intestinal bulges) can also be removed in a minimally invasive procedure.

The benefits of robot-assisted keyhole surgery lie not only in the manner of access but also in the technical possibilities of the system itself. In minimally invasive procedures, surgical trauma is kept to a minimum, the wound heals more quickly, patients experience less pain and they recover faster. This is partly due to the reduced loss of blood, which is made possible by the very precise and detailed view that is presented during the operation. Two cameras operating in parallel give the surgeon a three-dimensional image that he can enlarge by up to twelve times the original size. Thanks to special hinges, the instruments are more dexterous than the human hand and offer seven degrees of freedom of movement and almost 360° rotation. Involuntary tremors of the human hand are also compensated for. This makes it possible to operate with great precision, which is of paramount importance particularly in meticulous phases of the surgery such as when cutting off the blood supply to renal tumours or when preserving the erectile nerves in radical prostatectomies.

Because the Urology Department at Mainz University Medical Centre was among the first to introduce the daVinci® robot in Germany, Professor Thüroff and his team have been able to acquire a vast amount of experience in all applications of the system.This is reflected by the many occasions that Professor Thüroff has been invited to other hospitals to demonstrate surgical practice using the daVinci® system and to pass on his expertise. Professor Thüroff and his experienced and well-coordinated team at the Urology Department in Mainz have performed numerous procedures using the daVinci® system and are able to carry out a wide range of surgical operations with great success.

Blutenfest des Rotes Moselweinbergpfirsich

ROZE LENTE IN COCHEM

We hebben éven moeten oefenen, maar na een tijdje rolde Rote Moselweinbergpfirsich vanzelf uit onze mond. Toch kan je in Cochem ook gewoon Rud Peesche zeggen, het plaatselijke dialect voor deze kleine perzik met haar robijnrode vruchtvlees die overal in de Moezelvallei groeit. Terwijl de wijngaarden er nog kaal bijliggen, zijn de roze bloemen van de Moezel-Wijnbergperzik al een fleurige voorbode van de lente. Goed nieuws voor de plaatselijke wijnboeren dus, maar ook voor al wie dol is op perziken, want dan wordt er in Cochem smakelijk gefeest.

Saarbrucken

LANGS DE TAFELS VAN SAAR (LEKKER) LAND

Voor de ene is het een stukje Frankrijk in Duitsland, voor de andere is het een stukje Duitsland dat ook in Frankrijk niet zou misstaan. Wij houden het bij typisch Duits met een stevige Franse twist: Saarland. De kleinste Duitse deelstaat ging een paar keer over en weer tussen beide landen, was tweemaal op zichzelf en werd in 1957 definitief bij Duitsland ingelijfd. Het resultaat is een grensoverschrijdende kruisbestuiving van savoir-vivre en savoir-faire die zich vooral in de lokale gastronomie laat gelden. Wij trokken in Saarland letterlijk van de ene rijk gedekte tafel naar de andere, gingen er tafeltoeren en lieten ons galant overtuigen van het feit dat je van 'een schone tafel' wél kan eten.

Crazy SB Waschsalon

Crazy SB Waschsalon

Quando estamos viajando, nada como ter uma lavanderia perto para as horas de aperto. Não tem como não notar essa lavanderia toda "modernosa". Crazy SB Waschsalon chama a atenção por suas centenas de meias penduradas. Uma decoração perfeita para o ambiente. Eu não cheguei a lavar nenhuma roupa na minha estádia em Dresden, mas se ficasse mais uns dias, teria voltado lá de certeza. Fica na Louisenstraße 6, aberto todos os dias das 06h - 23h.

Travel Bookshop

Travel Bookshop - para os apaixonados por viagem

As coisas mais legais, sem dúvidas eu encontrei em Neustadt. É a região mais alternativa e legal de Dresden. Foi lá que eu vi uma das Lojas de Livros de Viagem mais legais. É aquela loja/livraria/papelaria que você vai querer comprar tudo. Passei uma boa hora lá dentro, folheando (porque ler em alemão, nem em sonho!) todos os guias, livros. Comprei uns postais lindos. Bobeei por não ter comprado uns mapas antigos, eram lindos.

Kunsthofpassage

1000 e 1 passagem

Em Neustadt tem a Kunsthofphpassage, que é uma passagem incrível. Ela tem vários prédios "temáticos". O azul por exemplo quando chove, a água nos canos vira música. Fora os prédios, ainda tem várias lojas bacanas e cafés charmosos para você aproveitar. #youngDresden #mustsees #shopping #cafés

Zwinger Palace

O Chateau de Versailles de Dresden

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.
