About this Research Topic
The prevalence of PFD is estimated to increase in the next decades due to the aging population.
Even if vaginal approach for the treatment of these diseases is most common with up to 90% of procedures being performed through this route, nowadays laparoscopic surgery for the treatment of PFD has gained increasing importance due to its lower morbidity and reoperation rate.
Additionally, the development of robotic systems in recent years has consequently revolutionized the surgical approach to PFD. The introduction of robotic systems determined improvements in terms of the surgical learning curve and the feasibility of minimally invasive surgery.
The purpose of this Research Topic is to collect Original Research, Reviews as well as Clinical Trials concerning the following aspects:
-New surgical procedures in urogynecology.
-Technical notes, perioperative risks and post operative outcomes of current surgical procedures.
-Refinements of existing surgical techniques able to produce positive postoperative outcomes.
-Minimally invasive abdominal and vaginal surgeries.
-Artificial intelligence and development of robotic systems.
