New Studies Demonstrate Benefits of Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy and Colectomy When Compared to Open Surgery
Date:10/26/2009

nvasive procedures may be riskier for patients should be reassured because this real-world data demonstrates the overall complication rate is actually higher with the open abdominal approach."

When compared with patients that underwent an open abdominal hysterectomy, the vaginal approach was associated with an average cost-savings of more than $4,000 and laparoscopic hysterectomy an average of $2,000 in cost-savings. Among the three methods of hysterectomy, open abdominal hysterectomy remains the most common approach as 70 percent(iii) of procedures are still performed in this manner, despite the clear benefits of minimally invasive approaches. The retrospective analysis was performed on 15,404 patients using claims data from a large U.S. managed care plan. The results of the study, which was sponsored by Ethicon Endo-Surgery, were published in the September issue of The Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology.

In similar findings, another study titled "Comparison of the Clinical and Economic Outcomes Between Open and Minimally Invasive Appendectomy and Colectomy: Evidence from a Large Commercial Payer Database" concluded minimally invasive appendectomy and colectomy were associated with lower infection rates, fewer complications, shorter hospital stays and lower expenditures than open surgery. The results of the retrospective analysis, which was also sponsored by Ethicon Endo-Surgery, has been accepted for publication in the peer-reviewed journal Surgical Endoscopy and is currently available on the journal's Web site. The data included analysis of 7,532 appendectomy and 2,745 colectomy procedures using a large commercial payer database.

"This data strongly suggests that if someone needs a colectomy, regardless of age, a minimally invasive procedure will result in fewer complications, get them out of the hospital several days sooner and cost the healthcare system $15,000 less than if the patient underwent
