1201 Laparoscoic Supracervical Hysterectomy and Sacrocervicopexy Using Flexdex's Platform Technology with Extraction of The Surgical Specimen by the Posterior Colpotomy for the Treatment of Uterine Prolapse

ConclusionThe FlexDex platform allows similar amplitude and intuitive wrist movement of the surgeon during complex procedures such as the one here presented – being a cost-effective alternative to the robot technology in countries where it is not readily available.

CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic LEER for a laterally recurrent previously irradiated cervical cancer with concomitant sciatica was technically feasible, however, further study involving a greater number of patients and longer follow-up period is warranted to determine the stringent indications.

A 46-year-old female patient presented to her gynecologist who complained of one-month history of irregular vaginal bleeding and abdominal pain two months ago. She first visited the local hospital, abdominal B-mode ultrasound showed multiple myomas of the uterus. The patient had severe vaginal bleeding symptoms and no fertility requirements, so laparoscopic hysterectomy was a suitable treatment option. It was found that the lower segment ureter and the uterine tumor were obviously adhered during the operation.

CONCLUSION: The incidence of urologic complications during radical hysterectomy is low. The risk of urologic complications may be higher for patients who are treated at a women and children's hospital, are treated in first-tier city hospitals, and receive laparoscopic surgery. Urologic complications have an impact on short-term survival, but not on long-term survival. PMID: 32507516 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Recently, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) for cervical cancer has been shown to result in a higher recurrence rate than open surgery [1]. Manipulation and handling of the uterine cervix during MIS may contribute to this finding [2 –4]. Therefore, minimal handling of the uterine cervix is being promoted in cases in which MIS is still used. The parametrium can be sufficiently exposed by suspension of the umbilical ligament and the ureter from the abdominal wall, minimizing the need for handling of the uterine cervix [2].

This study focused on the macroscopic description of the superior hypogastric plexus, hypogastric nerves, inferior hypogastric plexus, the parasympathetic pelvic splanchnic nerves and the sympathetic fibres. Their arrangement is described in relation to commonly used surgical landmarks such as the sacral promontory, ureters, uterosacral ligaments, uterine and rectal blood vessels. Thirty-one embalmed female pelvises from 20 formalin-fixed and 11 Thiel-fixed cadavers were prepared. In all cases explored, the superior hypogastric plexus was situated anterior to the bifurcation of the abdominal aorta. In 60% of specimens, it ...

Conclusions: We have developed a novel device, VESOPASTA, which can be used for organ traction during robotic surgery. This new device allows easy ureteral traction, facilitate the identification of ureter and prevent ureteral injuries during robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical hysterectomy.
