Abstract

Radical parametrectomy is rarely performed for benign diseases given the considerable risk of complications, however, some benign conditions require wide excision of the pelvic tissue, including parametria. We report on two cases of robotic radical parametrectomy performed for benign diseases. An electronic search was also carried out in PubMed database online to review this subject. Robotic surgery for radical parametrectomy seems safe and feasible and may be the preferred approach in terms of both lower complication rates, and shorter hospital stay compared to laparotomy, with the same results in terms of improvement of symptoms of chronic pelvic pain, although further studies are needed to confirm this observation.
