Two retrospective studies were performed at a local Maryland hospital to compare surgical techniques for hysterectomy and myomectomy procedures.
In the comparison of 2,689 patients who underwent a laparoscopic hysterectomy procedure (the review included patients who had DualPortGYN, Robotic or standard laparoscopic surgery), DualPortGYN (also known as laparoscopic retroperitoneal hysterectomy or LRH) clearly showed the best patient outcomes with the lowest complication rates, and 0% conversion to open surgery.
The combined intra- and post-op complication rate of LRH is 5.4%.
In the comparison of 1,313 patients who underwent a myomectomy (the review included patients who had LAAM, robotic, standard laparoscopic or open myomectomy procedure), LAAM (laparoscopic assisted abdominal myomectomy), showed the best patient outcomes, including removal of large and multiple fibroids, lowest complication rates, and the lowest conversion to open surgery at 0.7%.
The combined intra- and post-op complication rate of (LAAM) is 9.4%.
