INTRODUCTION: The aim of this review is to provide a general historical and contemporary perspective on the implementation and use of robot-assisted laparoscopy in gynecology as well as the experience gained to date. CONTENTS: Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgeries in gynecology include benign hysterectomy, myomectomy, radical hysterectomy, lymph node dissections or sacrocolpopexies. Robot-assisted gynecologic surgery is often associated with longer operating room time but generally similar clinical outcomes, decreased blood loss and shorter hospital stay when compared to open or laparoscopic surgery...

This study evaluated the feasibility and safety of robotic single port hysterectomy and laparoscopic single port hysterectomy, and to compare the perioperative parameters of the two systems. Twenty patients underwent robotic single port hysterectomy and 25 patients underwent laparoscopic single port hysterectomy. All hysterectomies were successfully performed via a single port and there were no conversions to conventional multi-port laparoscopy, multi-port robotic, open surgery, or vaginal surgery. The median operative time and hysterectomy time in robotic and laparoscopic groups were 90 vs...

AIM: Laparoscopic surgery causes fewer postoperative adhesions than laparotomy and adhesion barriers are used to lessen the chance of adhesion. Sodium hyaluronate and carboxymethylcellulose (SH-CMC), a bioresorbable membrane, is effective in preventing adhesions. However, its properties make it difficult to insert the film into the abdominal cavity and to place it into the target area during laparoscopic surgeries. Here we report a novel technique for applying SH-CMC during laparoscopic surgeries by using cut-off surgical glove fingers...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Sacropexy is considered the gold standard for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse (POP) although dissection of the promontory may be challenging, particularly in obese women. Laparoscopic lateral suspension with mesh (LLS) could be an alternative. METHODS: LLS provides lateral attachment by fibrosis of a vesicovaginal mesh. Clinical evaluation was performed at 1 year using the simplified POP quantification system (POP-Q). Primary outcomes were objective and subjective cure at 1 year...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Hysterectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures women will undergo in their lifetime. Several factors affect surgical outcomes. It has been suggested that high-volume surgeons favorably affect outcomes and hospital cost. The objective is to determine the impact of individual surgeon volume on total hospital costs for hysterectomy. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort of women undergoing hysterectomy for benign indications from 2011 to 2013 at 10 hospitals within the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center System...

A rare case of parasitic myoma mimicking an adnexal mass in a previously hysterectomized, postmenopausal woman is presented. Two years after vaginal hysterectomy (due to myomas), an asymptomatic right adnexal tumor was noted during regular annual follow up. Ultrasound demonstrated a large 4-5 cm solid mass in the right adnexa, while ovarian cancer biomarkers (CA 125 and HE4) were negative. Intraoperatively, another 3 cm large solid tumor located above the vaginal cuff was discovered. Both pelvic tumors were excised by laparoscopic surgery...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The annual cost of prolapse surgeries is expected to grow at twice the rate of population growth. Understanding the economic impact of apical prolapse procedures, including sacrospinous fixation (SSF), abdominal sacrocolpopexy (ASC), and laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (LSC), is crucial. We aimed to compare overall cost of SSF versus ASC and LSC, as well as health resource utilization, up to 90-day follow-up. METHODS: Truven Marketscan Commercial Claims and Encounter databases 2008-2012 were used to calculate index and 90-day follow-up costs for SSF, ASC, and LSC with/without hysterectomy...

BACKGROUND: Organisms that are isolated from vaginal cuff infections and pelvic abscesses after hysterectomy frequently include anaerobic vaginal flora. Metronidazole has outstanding coverage against nearly all anaerobic species, which is superior to both cefazolin and second-generation cephalosporins. Cefazolin plus metronidazole has been demonstrated to reduce infectious morbidity compared with either cefazolin or second-generation cephalosporins in other clean-contaminated procedures, which include both as colorectal surgery and cesarean delivery...

Minimally invasive hysterectomy via the laparoscopic or vaginal approach is beneficial to patients when compared with laparotomy, but has not been offered in the past to all women because of the technical difficulties and the long learning curve required for laparoscopic hysterectomy. Robotic-assisted hysterectomy for benign indications may allow for a shorter learning curve but does not offer clear advantages over conventional laparoscopic hysterectomy in terms of surgical outcomes. In addition, robotic hysterectomy is invariably associated with increased costs...
