Purpose of review To illustrate the current stand on robotic versus conventional laparoscopic hysterectomy regarding operating times, clinical outcome and costs. Recent findings Only six studies were reviewed, as there are only few recent studies comparing robotic with laparoscopic hysterectomy and most are retrospective. Apart from one multicentre study with over 36 000 patients, 350 institutions and numerous surgeons, most studies were performed with few cases by one or two surgeons at one or… Expand

Topics from this paper

Robotic vs Laparoscopic Hysterectomy: Is Robot Superior?
TLDR
Recent comparative studies have found that robotic and conventional laparoscopic hysterectomy are essentially equivalent regarding surgical and clinical outcome. Expand
Comparison of cost and operative outcomes of robotic hysterectomy compared to laparoscopic hysterectomy across different uterine weights
TLDR
In expert hands, robotic hysterectomy for uteri weighing more than 750 g may be associated with shorter operative time and improved cost profile. Expand
Cost comparison of robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy versus standard laparoscopic hysterectomy
TLDR
The hospitalization total cost result showed that, after adjusting for hospital, age, BMI, previous abdominal/pelvic surgery, and uterine weight, RTLH was not significantly more expensive than LAVH/TLH (mean diff. = $283.1, 95 % CI =–[−569.6, 1135.7]; p < 0.0001). Expand
The benefits and challenges of robotic-assisted hysterectomy
TLDR
The place of robotic hysterectomy in the gynecologic surgical armamentarium is still evolving and most surgeons are unlikely to be equally proficient in both techniques, so future studies will need to question whether subgroups of patients with complex benign disease such as endometriosis and pelvic adhesive disease may benefit from the robotic assistance. Expand
Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy With and Without Robotic Assistance
TLDR
Significantly lower operative times and blood loss indicate that robotic assistance can facilitate surgery already during the learning curve period, and the cost-effectiveness of robotic hysterectomy for benign conditions is yet to be confirmed. Expand
A randomized trial comparing vaginal and laparoscopic hysterectomy vs robot-assisted hysterectomy.
TLDR
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
Robotically assisted vs laparoscopic hysterectomy among women with benign gynecologic disease.
TLDR
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
Benign GYN Surgical Outcomes in an Academic Teaching Hospital : Robotic Assisted Laparoscopic Hysterectomy versus Conventional Laparoscopic Hysterectomy
Objective: Worldwide robotic procedures are gaining acceptance, and it has been well documented that the daVinci surgical system used for hysterectomies is a safe, feasible technique with similarExpand
Arm reduced robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy with transvaginal cuff closure

  • 2017
TLDR
Two-armed robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy appears to be a cost-effective solution for robotic gynecologic surgery and has the potential to be an widely preferred surgical approach in medical communities where cost reduction is one of the primary determinants of surgery type. Expand
Clinical comparison of robotic, laparoscopic, and open hysterectomy procedures for endometrial cancer patients
TLDR
Comparing outcomes for robotic, laparoscopic, and open hysterectomy procedures for endometrial cancer as well as to investigate whether specific patient demographic, comorbidity, and severity variables were associated with the type of hysteretomy performed, showed no significant differences in patient or tumor characteristics.

Robotic hysterectomy versus conventional laparoscopic hysterectomy: outcome and cost analyses of a matched case-control study.
TLDR
Robotic-assited hysterectomy is a feasible and interesting new technique with comparable outcome to total laparoscopic hysteretomy and costs are still higher than for conventional laparoscopy. Expand
Robotic-Assisted Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Versus Conventional Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy
TLDR
Robotic hysterectomy can be performed safely with comparable operative times to those of conventional laparoscopic hysteretomy, and postoperative measures were improved over measures for conventional Laparoscopy. Expand
Robotic-Assisted Hysterectomy for Endometrial Cancer Compared With Traditional Laparoscopic and Laparotomy Approaches: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Perioperative clinical outcomes for robotic and laparoscopic hysterectomy appear similar with the exception of less blood loss for robotic cases and longer operative times for roboticand laparoscopy cases. Expand
Comparing robot-assisted with conventional laparoscopic hysterectomy: impact on cost and clinical outcomes.
TLDR
In inpatient and outpatient settings alike, use of robotic assistance was consistently associated with statistically significant, higher per-patient average hospital costs, which suggests that further investigation is warranted when considering this technology for routine laparoscopic hysterectomies. Expand
A comparison of total laparoscopic hysterectomy to robotically assisted hysterectomy: surgical outcomes in a community practice.
TLDR
A higher likelihood of exploratory laparotomy for hysterectomy in the prerobotic cohort versus the robotic cohort and aHigher likelihood of intraoperative conversion to laparotomies with the preRobotic cohort than with the robotic cohorts existed. Expand
Robot-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy: technique and initial experience.
TLDR
Robot-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy is a feasible and promising new technique that may overcome surgical limitations seen with conventional laparoscopy. Expand
Pilot study assessing robotic laparoscopic hysterectomy and patient outcomes.
TLDR
While the number of patients and nonrandomized nature of this single-institution experience are insufficient to draw any definitive conclusions regarding potential treatment efficacy, the patient postoperative stay and low complication rates suggest that this procedure is feasible and promising. Expand
Perioperative Outcomes of Robotically Assisted Hysterectomy for Benign Cases With Complex Pathology
TLDR
This study suggests that robotic assistance facilitates the use of a minimally invasive approach in high-risk patient populations with complex pathology, with low morbidity and a short hospital stay. Expand
Comparison of minimally invasive surgical approaches for hysterectomy at a community hospital: robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy, laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy and laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy
TLDR
Outcomes in RALH can be as good as or better than those in LSH, suggesting the latter should be the choice primarily for women desiring cervix-sparing surgery. Expand
Comparison of laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy with traditional hysterectomy for cost-effectiveness to employers.
TLDR
For most patients, laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy provides a minimally invasive way to accomplish a hystEREctomy with a lower cost to employers (payers) on the basis of lost work hours. Expand
