Better outcomes for benign da Vinci hysterectomy

"Intuitive Surgical today announced the published results from a new study titled, “Multicenter analysis comparing robotic, open, laparoscopic and vaginal hysterectomies performed by high volume surgeons for benign indication.”  When evaluating comparable surgeon experience, the study found that women undergoing benign hysterectomies by robotic-assisted surgeons using da Vinci® Surgical Systems had better outcomes and experienced fewer complications compared to conventional abdominal, vaginal and laparoscopic hysterectomies outcomes.

The study, which was published in the International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics, and led by Peter Lim, M.D. at Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, Nevada, analyzed over 32,000 benign hysterectomy cases and compared the outcomes of high-volume surgeons across the four surgical approaches.  The study compared 30-day outcomes from robotic-assisted hysterectomies performed by high-volume surgeons (≥60 procedures) with data from high-volume surgeons obtained from the Premier Perspective database for abdominal, vaginal, and laparoscopic hysterectomies. The data evaluated included: 2,300 robotic-assisted, 9,745 abdominal, 8,121 vaginal and 11,952 laparoscopic hysterectomies.
