The study, 'A retrospective evaluation of the perioperative drug use and comparison of its cost in robotic vs open surgery for endometrial cancer' was conducted at Department of Gynaecologic oncology, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences , between January 2014 and June 2017. The study published in the Journal of Robotic Surgery, part of international publisher Springer, was carried out to compare the usage and cost in robotic vs open surgery for EC. The results showed that when compared to open surgery, robotic surgery was associated with significantly lower medicine and material costs attributed to IV fluids, analgesia (pain killers) and anti-emetics (for vomiting and nausea).
