Robotic-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy compared with standard laparoscopic myomectomy--a retrospective matched control study

Fertility and Sterility

Compare robotic-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy (RALM) to a matched control standard laparoscopic myomectomy (LM). A retrospective matched control study. Private practice setting. Premenopausal and postmenopausal women who underwent either robotic-assisted or standard laparoscopic myomectomy. None. Retrospective chart review was performed. Cases of laparoscopic robotic-assisted myomectomies were compared with a matched control group of standard LM. Comparisons were based on Fisher's exact, Mann-Whitney, and exact chi-square tests. Between January 2006 and August 2007, 15 consecutive RALMs were performed at our institution, compared with 35 matched control standard LMs. The two groups were matched by age, body mass index, parity, previous abdominopelvic surgery, size, number, and location of myomas. Mean surgical time for the RALM was 234 minutes (range 140-445) compared with 203 minutes (range 95-330) for standard LMs. Blood loss, hospitalization time, and postoperative complications were not significantly different. The RALM required a significant prolonged surgical time over LM. It appears that in the hands of a skilled laparoscopic surgeon, the RALM does not offer any major advantage. This technology, however, offers exciti...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
