To compare conventional minimally invasive (MIS) approaches and newer technology approaches in women undergoing hysterectomy for benign disease. PubMed was searched for all pertinent randomized-controlled trials (RCTs). Selected outcomes were compared using standard meta-analysis methods. Three RCTs compared conventional MIS to robotic-assisted hysterectomy and 5 RCTs compared conventional laparoscopy to single-incision hysterectomy. There were no significant differences in outcomes.

Postoperative outcomes and quality of life following hysterectomy by natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) compared to laparoscopy in women with a non-prolapsed uterus and benign gynaecological disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
At the present NOTES should be considered as a technique under evaluation for use in gynaecological surgery and RCTs are needed to demonstrate its effectiveness. Expand

The introduction of the robotic surgical platform has significantly lowered abdominal hysterectomy rates and emerging platforms with flexible, articulating instruments may increase the uptake of single-port procedures including natural orifice transluminal endoscopic cases. Expand
Mini-plus percutaneous setting in total laparoscopic hysterectomy.
The preliminary data suggest that MpPc approach is a feasible and safe surgical modality for total laparoscopic hysterectomy. Expand
Incorporating 3D Laparoscopy for the Management of Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer: A Comparison with Open Surgery
3D-laparoscopic nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy via 3D laparoscopic technology allows the execution of challenging operations via minimally invasive surgery, thus reducing open abdominal procedure rates. Expand
Laparoscopic hysterectomy in chronic renal failure patients with abnormal uterine bleeding
For CRF patients with AUB who no longer want to preserve their fertility, hysterectomy may be a better option, not only to permanently resolve the problem, but also to remove the risk of future uterine lesions. Expand
Comparison of the short-term and long-term outcomes of laparoscopic hysterectomies and of abdominal hysterectomies: a case study of 4,895 patients in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
LH is a safe and efficient operation for improving patients?long-term quality of life (QoL), and LH is a cost-effectiveness procedure for treating benign gynecological disease. Expand


Innovations in Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy
As with any evolving technology, well-designed studies are needed to demonstrate safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness before wide-spread adoption of minimally invasive hysterectomy. Expand
A randomized trial comparing vaginal and laparoscopic hysterectomy vs robot-assisted hysterectomy.
Robotic-assisted hysterectomy was associated with less blood loss and fewer postoperative complications, and a similar hospital cost can be attained for laparoscopy and robotics when the robot was a preexisting investment. Expand
Robotic Compared With Conventional Laparoscopic Hysterectomy: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy and conventional laparoscopy compare well in most surgical aspects, but the robotic procedure is associated with longer operating times and postoperative quality-of-life index was better; however, long-term, there was no difference. Expand
A systematic review and cost analysis of robot-assisted hysterectomy in malignant and benign conditions.
In malignant conditions, less blood loss, fewer complications and a shorter hospital stay were considered as the main advantages of robot-assisted surgery, like any mini-invasive technique when compared to open surgery, and vaginal hysterectomy was considered the optimal choice when feasible. Expand
A randomized trial comparing conventional and robotically assisted total laparoscopic hysterectomy.
Although laparoscopic and robotic-assisted hysterectomies are safe approaches to hystEREctomy, robotic- assisted hySterectomy requires a significantly longer operative time. Expand
Single-Port Compared With Conventional Laparoscopic-Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Transumbilical two-channel single-port laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy significantly decreases postoperative pain and analgesic use. Expand
Surgical approach to hysterectomy for benign gynaecological disease.
Assessing the most beneficial and least harmful surgical approach to hysterectomy for women with benign gynaecological conditions found VH should be performed in preference to AH where possible and where VH is not possible, LH may avoid the need for AH. Expand
Robotically assisted vs laparoscopic hysterectomy among women with benign gynecologic disease.
The use of robotically assisted hysterectomy for benign gynecologic disorders increased substantially between 2007 and 2010, and the use of robotic technology resulted in substantially more costs. Expand
Minilaparoscopic versus single-port total hysterectomy: a randomized trial.
Laroscopic hysterectomy can be safely performed by M-LPS and LESS and is associated with significantly lower operative time and less postoperative pain than LESS, which has no noteworthy impact on the patients' early postoperative management. Expand

The decision to electively perform a salpingoophorectomy should not be influenced by the chosen route of hysterectomy and is not a contraindication to performing a vaginal hysteretomy. Expand
