Robot-Assisted Laparoscopic Myomectomy Versus Abdominal Myomectomy A Retrospective Comparison of Short-Term Surgical Outcomes.
CONCLUSION: Robotic-assisted and abdominal myo- mectomies have similar surgical outcomes. However, the longer total operating time for robotic-assisted myomec- tomies is a drawback which may not be completely offset by the benefit of a shorter hospital stay.

Saline Infusion Sonography Can Improve Outcome in Subsequent ICSI Cycles When No Intrauterine Pathology Is Detected.
CONCLUSION: .SIS can be used to assess the endome- trial cavity prior to ICSI cycle; moreover, SIS might be associated with improved outcomes when no intrauterine pathology is detected. Confirmation of this finding via future robust randomized trials is needed and would be useful to further guide clinical practice. PMID: 30383938 [PubMed] (Source: Journal of Reproductive Medicine)
