Objective: To describe perioperative adverse events, fertility and obstetric outcome, following a robot assisted laparoscopic approach for treating Cesarean scar pregnancies (CSP).
Study Design: A retrospective case series of 14 consecutive women with a CSP and a wish for and attempts towards subsequent pregnancies, having undergone minimal invasive surgical treatment at two tertiary referral Swedish centers (Dep's of Obstetrics and Gynecology Skåne University Hospital, Lund, and Södersjukhuset, Stockholm) between 2008 and 2019.
