New research exposes a need for preoperative screening of even low-risk women undergoing robotic sacrocolpopexy, particularly those with risk factors such as obesity or diabetes.
Surgeons who perform a high volume of hysterectomies each year are less likely to injure the lower urinary tract during surgery.
Data show that maintaining surgical proficiency results in better outcomes for laparoscopic hysterectomy. The magic number for maintenance: 20 procedures a year.
Patients with uterine fibroids have been advised to avoid a hysterectomy as treatment of the condition at all costs. Sound advice or mucky water?

Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery with hysterectomy (LESS-H) for benign disease with either a lateral or vaginal approach is a feasible procedure regardless of cesarean section history.
The use of robotically assisted hysterectomy for women with benign gynecological disease offers little short-term benefit and has significantly greater costs than laparoscopic hysterectomy, according to the results of a large US cohort study.
Use of surgical mesh to correct vaginal vault prolapse after a hysterectomy is associated with a lower risk of prolapse recurrence at 1 year than sacrospinous fixation (SSF), according to results of a new study
