Abstract: Endometrial cancer (EC) is the most common gynecological malignancy. A large proportion of patients present with the risk factors high age and obesity, which puts them at increased risk when undergoing surgery. The last decades, robotic surgery has become the preferred method of treating EC in many settings, instead of open surgery that was the traditional method. We aimed to investigate robotic surgery in women with EC with regard to surgical outcomes, costs, survival, and health-related qualit... more
