Abstract OBJECTIVE: We describe a series of patients diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer after undergoing simple hysterectomy who subsequently underwent robotic radical parametrectomy and bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy. The goal of this study is to report on the safety and feasibility of robotic radical parametrectomy. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of all patients who underwent robotic radical parametrectomy and bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy at our institution during the period December 2006 to February 2008. We analyzed our data to evaluate the safety and feasibility of performing robotic radical parametrectomy. RESULTS: This analysis included 5 patients with invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix. The median body mass index was 23.8 kg/m(2) (range, 17.7 to 26.5). The median operative time was 365 min (range, 331 to 430). The median estimated blood loss was 100 mL (range, 50 to 175). There were no conversions to laparotomy. There was 1 intraoperative complication--cystotomy. No patient required blood transfusion. The median length of hospital stay was 1 day (range, 1 to 2). One patient experienced two postoperative complications, a vesicovaginal fistula and a lymphocyst. No patient had residual tumor in the parametrectomy specimen, and no patient underwent adjuvant therapy. The median number of pelvic lymph nodes removed was 14 (range, 6 to 16). The median follow-up for all patients was 7.5 months (range, 1.3 to 13.8). There were no recurrences. CONCLUSION: Robotic radical parametrectomy and bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy is feasible and safe and can be performed with an acceptable complication rate.
