The article contains a systematic review of the literature dedicated to vascular robot-assisted operations, also discussing the use of robotic technologies in vascular surgery, their advantages and disadvantages. In so doing, we studied the experience of Russian and leading international surgical centres, comparing the reported outcomes by such parameters as the average duration of the operation, mean time of aortic cross-clamping, time spent for anastomosis formation, frequency of postoperative complications, etc.

Benefits of robot-assisted operations allowed the latter to occupy the leading positions in various fields of surgery, although the use of robots in vascular surgery has only begun to gain popularity. A robotically assisted system eliminates the main shortcomings of laparoscopy and opens opportunities for expanding robot-assisted surgery in this field.

KEY WORDS: vascular surgery, robot-assisted operations, da Vinci, aortofemoral bypass grafting, iliac-deep-femoral bypass grafting.
