Abstract

NONE DECLARED The preservation of ovarian function in young patients after radical hysterectomy has an important role at the post-oncologic management and preserves life quality. Ovarian transposition is a technique in order to avoid irreversible damage to the ovaries caused by irradiation. The principal surgical ways in the transposition of the ovaries is both through laparotomy and laparoscopy. Recently, the application of the robotic technology on this method seems to be promising. We performed a literature search with terms related to robotic surgery and ovarian transposition in Pubmed and Scopus. Two articles were identified dealing with this technique. Robotic assisted ovarian transposition is presented and the possible advantages and disadvantages of such a technique are discussed.
