Abstract

 

Robot-assisted surgery (RAS) for hysterectomy or sacrocolpopexy should be limited to clinical research settings at present as it is unclear whether it is safer and more effective than conventional laparoscopic surgery (CLS). Ongoing trials are likely to have an important impact on evidence related to the use of robot-assisted surgery in gynaecology.
