Engineer replaced a second camera arm. As a precaution, two other robotic arms where replaced to match software version of the third. ======================manufacturer response for da vinci robot endoscopic instrument control system: manufacturer was sympathetic and regretted circumstances surrounding robot arm failing twice in a row.
