SIG Project:

Meta-analysis on R-LPS for 1) benign gynaecological disease, and 2) deep infiltrating endometriosis

Project description:

The project will perform a literature Meta-analysis on robotic-assisted laparoscopy (RLPS)for hysterectomy in benign conditions and for deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE). To date there are a lot of data about R-LPS in gynaecological oncologic disease, with specific advantage showed only for obese patients with early endometrial cancer. In order to evaluate the potential interest to design prospective trials, an analysis of the present literature will be performed.
