Objective · To investigate safety of laparoscopic surgery in diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic diseases in elderly women over 70 years old. Methods · A total of 420 cases of elderly patients over 70 years old from January 2009 to December 2016 were retrospectively analyzed in Shanghai Ruijin Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine. According to ages, the patients were divided into elderly group (70-80 years old, including 70 years old) and advanced age group (80 years old and above); according to surgical methods, the patients were divided into laparoscopy group and laparotomy group. The ages, American Society of Anesthesiology (ASA) classifications, body mass indexes (BMI), preoperative complications, surgical methods, intraoperative circumstances, postoperative pathology results and postoperative complications were analyzed. Results · There were no significant differences in age, ASA classification and BMI between laparoscopy group and laparotomy group in the same age group (P<0.05). Most patients had various chronic diseases before operations. Taking total hysterectomy as an example, laparoscopy groups in the two age groups were superior to laparotomy groups in the comparison of surgical time, bleeding volume, anal evacuation time and length of hospital stay (P<0.05). In the two age groups, laparoscopic malignant tumor radical surgery took less time, less bleeding and shorter anal evacuation time than laparotomy (P<0.05). Elderly laparoscopy group had less poor wound healing cases than elderly laparotomy group (P<0.05), while there was no statistical difference in other postoperative complications (P>0.05). All the patients completed the surgeries without perioperative deaths. Conclusion · Laparoscopy is safe in the diagnosis and treatment of gynecological benign and malignant diseases in elderly women with shorter operation time, less bleeding and faster postoperative recovery compared with laparotomy.
