Abstract

Laparoscopic approach is today the standard treatment for benign and malignant gynecological pathologies. To traditional laparoscopic surgery in the last 10 years we can add the possibility to use a robotic platform. The adoption of this system allows undoubted advantages as the three-dimensional vision, the absence of the physiological tremor with enhanced ergonomics and possibility of using articulable tools. In this study we analyzed the results of 18 patients with endometrial cancer (Stage I) treated with robotic approach. The results were compared with a selected sample of 26 patients, with the same characteristics, treated with traditional laparoscopic approach in the same period by the same surgical team. The mean total operative time was significantly longer for robotic than laparoscopic group (125.6 min vs 102.3 min). However, if to this operative time we remove the time of preparation (docking time) we obtain the following results: 102.5 min for robotic group and 95.7 min for the laparoscopic control group. Intra-operative blood loss are significantly lower in the robotic group than in laparoscopic group. The robotic treatment of gynecological cancer is a safe and feasible technique. The oncological results are also equivalent to those of traditional laparoscopic surgery with advantages in terms of precision and reduction of intraoperative bleeding. Additional clinical studies on larger samples and heterogeneous patients are necessary in order to clarify the real advantages of robotic treatment.
