Abstract
Sciatic neuropathy is a rare complication of gynecologic procedures with lithotomy position. Anesthesiologists should be aware of the possible causes and take extreme care to prevent nerve injuries. We report a case of postoperative sciatic neuropathy after a robot-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy, despite following recommended guidelines regarding appropriate positioning. Compressive neuropathy following a prolonged operation should be considered.
Key Words: Complication; Neuropathy; Robotic surgery; Sciatic nerve
