By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Women's Health Weekly -- Research findings on Surgery are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting from Izmir, Turkey, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "The benefits of laparoscopic surgery over open abdominal surgery have been well documented. Efforts continue for development of strategies that further reduce the size of abdominal incisions and the number of trocars used."
The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the University of Ege, "Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS) is a promising approach that can further enhance cosmetic satisfaction and reduce the risks of laparoscopic surgery. Loss of triangulation, instrument crowding and clashing, poor visualization, and ergonomic problems are the most challenging issues associated with the use of LESS. The combination of LESS and the robotic system seems to be a promising choice to overcome the technical difficulties of LESS. The da Vinci Single-Site Surgical Platform is a novel semirigid robotic operating system."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "We present our initial clinical experience with robotic-assisted single-incision transumbilical total hysterectomy using the novel da Vinci Single-Site Surgical Platform."
