Robotic Gynecology: From Concept to Applications
This book presents a review from diagnosis to management on the innovative use of Da Vinci Robot in gynecology (including both benign and gynecological oncology).
The authors of this book present and review important data on different chapters as: preface, history of robotics, evolution of robotics in medicine, the console – the robot -instruments used by the robot, use of energy by robotic instruments – siting of ports – docking, positioning of the patient, role of bedside assistant, anaesthetising for robotic pelvic surgery, applications in gynaecology, non-gynaecological applications of the robot, simple hysterectomy, sacrocolpopexy, endometriosis, tubal surgery, radical hysterectomy, radical trachelectomy, nerve sparing techniques, pelvic lymphadenectomy – para-aortic lymphadenectomy, sentinel nodes, omentectomy, appendicectomy, pelvic exenteration, pelvic side wall recurrence surgery, robotic surgery during pregnancy and early pregnancy complications, role of the robot in elderly and obese patients, suturing, accessory instruments to facilitate robotic pelvic surgery, post-operative care after robotic surgery, cost of robot. Finally, the authors suggest fields for possible future research. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
