Robot-assisted extraperitoneal gynaecologic cancer surgery has fewer surgical complications
In recent years, minimally invasive surgery has found its way into many operating rooms, and gynaecologic cancer surgery is no exception. With robotic surgery, surgical complications are reduced and a better recovery of the patient is achieved. However, there are different possible approaches to perform these interventions. Now, for the first time, a study explores the differences between all of them in performing para-aortic lymph node dissection. This is a common procedure for gynaecological cancers to see if the cancer cells have spread.
