ConclusionTo optimize targeting and visualization of the surgical field in right pelvic sidewall/paracolic gutter, robotic arms can be placed in a straight line from above the pubic symphysis extending to the left subcostal line and between the midline vertical and midclavicular lines. Robotic tumor debulking should be considered in selected patients with recurrent ovarian cancer who present with oligo-metastatic disease, in the absence of carcinomatosis.

ConclusionThere are numerous reports of the minimally invasive repair of CSD; however, it remains unknown in the obstetrical literature when interventions are required. Patients with minimal myometrial thinning and without evidence of serosal dehiscence may not require repair of the defect. More evidence is needed to observe obstetrical outcomes with or without repair.

ConclusionPectopexy appears to be a new, useful tool in the armamentarium of gynecological endoscopists for hysteropexy in patients desirous of further child bearing as it gives bilateral support at level of pericervical ring. It is also applicable for vault prolapse repair and after Laparoscopic Subtotal Hysterectomy for vault suspension.
