Abstract: The aim of this thesis was to compare minimally invasive- with traditional open surgical techniques for various diseases with regards to cost-effectiveness. Health economic evaluations were performed using data from clinical trials and routine care data from registers. The healthcare perspective was represented in all four studies and the societal perspective (including sick-leave costs) was represented in three out of four studies. Paper I included a cost-minimization analysis of laparosc... more
