The study was presented at the 40th Global Congress of the Minimally Invasive Gynecology of the American Association of GynecologicLaparoscopists (AAGL) and revealed that using Endo Stitch reduced the mean operating time by more than 40 minutes when compared to surgeries using robotic assistance and was also less expensive.
