Abstract

Purpose

This study evaluated the feasibility, safety, effectiveness, and long-term results of pelvic organ prolapse surgery using the Da Vinci® robotic system.

Methods

During a 7-year period, 52 consecutive patients with pelvic organ prolapse underwent robotic-assisted abdominal sacrocolpopexy. Clinical data were retrospectively collected and analyzed.

Results

All but two of the procedures were successfully completed robotically (96 %). Median operative time was 190 (range, 75–340) mins. There was no mortality and no specific morbidity due to the robotic approach. Mean hospital stay was 5 days. The median follow-up was 42 months. Five recurrent prolapses (9.6 %) were diagnosed.

Conclusions

Our experience indicates that using the Da-Vinci® robotic system is feasible, safe, and effective for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse with good long-term results.
