The SERGS web-based database is an anonymous platform (as required by the European Authorities for the protection of persons) and is managed in a data center located in France with 2 dedicated data managers.
The main goal of this project called EuRoD (European Robotic Database), is to collect information through a web platform from all Europe concerning robotics procedures.
Statement on the oncological safety of minimal access techniques for radical hysterectomy in early stage cervical cancer
The Society of European Robotic Gynaecological Surgeons (SERGS) note the emerging data presented at the SGO in March 2018 concerning the oncological safety of minimal access techniques in the treatment of early cervical cancer. This included a study from the MD Anderson Cancer Centre examining the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Result (SEER) database (1) and early data from the Laparoscopic Approach to Cervical Cancer (LACC) study (2), that suggest improved survival for open radical hysterectomy for early cervical cancer over minimal access techniques.
