Aim: To report our initial experience with robotic single-port myomectomy (RSPM) using the da Vinci SP surgical system and to evaluate the feasibility of the procedure. Material and Methods: This prospective observational study was performed at a university teaching hospital from January 2019 to December 2019. Sixty-one women with symptomatic fibroids received RSPM. Results: Based on seven resected fibroids and a maximal diameter of resected fibroids <10 cm, the women were arbitrarily divided into two groups. The mean number and maximal diameter of the removed fibroids were 3.7 ± 3.8 (2.3 ± 1.8 in Group 1 vs. 7.2 ± 5.3 in Group 2) and 7.6 ± 2.9 cm (6.8 ± 1.6 in Group 1 vs. 9.5 ± 4.3 in Group 2), respectively. The mean operation time, hemoglobin change, and hospital stay were 149.9 ± 72.9 min (123.8 ± 43.8 in Group 1 vs. 217.6 ± 89.4 in Group 2), 2.3 ± 1.0 g/dL (2.1 ± 0.9 in Group 1 vs. 2.7 ± 1.2 in Group 2), and 4.5 ± 0.8 days (4.4 ± 0.8 in Group 1 vs. 4.7 ± 0.9 in Group 2). There was no conversion to multi-port laparoscopy or laparotomy nor were there any major complications. Conclusions: RSPM using the da Vinci SP surgical system is feasible surgical modality for women with symptomatic fibroid and is expected to increase indications of single-port myomectomy by solving many of the ergonomics problems inevitably accompanying single-port laparoscopic myomectomy.
