The laparoscopy surgical team of Hospital Plodnost led by Dr. Hristijan Trpcevski, performed a total removal of the uterus with sentinel marking of the lymph glands with indocyanine green, in a 73-year-old patient. Lymph glands in the lesser pelvis were also removed.

“The main problem in this case is that the patient is short, weighing 130 kg. Excess weight makes such patients more difficult to be operated laparoscopically. We successfully performed this procedure laparoscopically, which is a great benefit for the patient despite the huge body mass. With classic surgery, recovery would have been very long. The patient left the hospital on the third postoperative day. Although the laparoscopic approach in this case was more difficult for us, for the patient it is certainly much easier. Our goal is to relieve patients. We used the advantage of laparoscopic marking of the lymph glands with indocyanine green contrast, a method which in North Macedonia is applied only in Hospital Plodnost.” said Dr. Hristijan Trpcevski.
