ZSX Medical completed enrollment in its First in Human Ease of Use study in May of 2017, in Monterrey Mexico. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the ease of use of Zip-Stitch™, to generate first in human data, and to refine surgical technique of the device. Ten subjects were enrolled and received total laparoscopic hysterectomies, including vaginal cuff closure with the Zip-Stitch™ system during their otherwise standard care. Procedures took place over the course of one week. Subjects had in person follow-up appointments at 1 and 6 weeks. Subjects are continuing follow-up through a one-year extension period which will end in May 2018.
American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) advises minimally invasive methods in gynecological surgery to ensure increased benefits to the patient and reduce potential hospitalization costs. Laparoscopic hysterectomy has become the standard approach in gynecological benign disorders. During laparoscopic hysterectomy, vaginal cuff can be closed with different sutures, techniques and approaches, which is one of the challenges of this surgery. Data is limited on potential impact of different sutures, techniques and approaches for vaginal cuff closure on female sexual function in relation to vaginal length. Various studies in the literature evaluated different approaches (abdominal, vaginal, laparoscopic, robotic-assisted laparoscopic). In addition, for cuff closure, different techniques (interrupted, continuous) and sutures (barbed, Vicryl) were compared. Measures like operation time, cuff healing, complications, cost effectiveness, etc. were usually measured. However, there is no prospective randomized clinical study in the literature that compares laparoscopic approach with vaginal route for cuff closure in terms of female sexual function in relation to vaginal length.
Objective: To compare the occurrence and intensity of pelvic pain as well as patient satisfaction and quality of life after total laparoscopic and laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy. Design: Prospective randomised trial. Null hypothesis 1: There is no significant difference in occurrence and intensity of pelvic pain following TLH compared with following LSH. Null hypothesis 2: There is no significant difference in patient satisfaction and quality of life following TLH compared with following LSH.
