SURGICAL RISKS

Hysterectomy (Benign): urinary tract injury, vaginal cuff problem (separation, adhesions, granulation tissue, infection, cellulitis, hematoma), bladder injury, bowel injury, vaginal tear or laceration, vaginal shortening, voiding dysfunction, fistula formation: vesicovaginal, rectovaginal. Uterine tissue may contain unsuspected cancer. The cutting or morcellation of uterine tissue during surgery may spread cancer and decrease the long-term survival of patients.

Hysterectomy (Malignant): urinary tract injury, vaginal cuff problem (separation, adhesions, granulation tissue, infection, cellulitis, hematoma), bladder injury, bowel injury, vaginal tear or laceration, vaginal shortening, voiding dysfunction, fistula formation: vesicovaginal, rectovaginal.

Myomectomy: uterine perforation, uterine rupture, preterm birth, spontaneous abortion Uterine tissue may contain unsuspected cancer. The cutting or morcellation of uterine or fibroid tissue during surgery may spread cancer and decrease the long-term survival of patients.

Sacrocolpopexy: mesh erosion/infection (if mesh used in repair) with need for re-operation, rectal injury, bladder injury, rectocele, cystocele, urinary tract injury, vaginal cuff dehiscence, urinary incontinence, hematoma (retropubic, perineal or other).

Endometriosis resection: bowel injury, bladder injury, urinary tract injury.

Adhesiolysis in Benign Hysterectomy

Single-Site® Hysterectomy by Dr. Merhi

Nahla Merhi, MD of Silver Cross Hospital demonstrates a Single-Site benign hysterectomy using the da Vinci Xi platform. Watch this video to see the easier setup, improved optics, and greater patient access with da Vinci Xi Single-Site technology (when compared to da Vinci Si Single-Site technology).

Adhesiolysis in Benign Hysterectomy

Post-hysterectomy Sacrocolpopexy

Charbel Salamon, MD of Morristown Medical Center demonstrates a post-hysterectomy sacrocolpopexy using the da Vinci Xi surgical system.

Webinar – Discharging your da Vinci Patients in Three Hours Using Preemptive Multimodal
                        Analgesia

Webinar – Discharging your da Vinci Patients in Three Hours Using Preemptive Multimodal Analgesia

Thomas Shultz, MD, of Cox Health Systems, shares how adopting multimodal analgesia (MMA) has enabled him and his partners to discharge 96.5% of their patients as outpatient since 2008. Dr. Shultz explains the MMA protocol he uses, data from his patient case series, and the health economic impact of adopting this procedure.
