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… CONTINUE READING
