abstract

  • Total laparoscopic radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy for selected patients with stage I cervical cancer is feasible, safe, and associated with a low morbidity in the pilot phase. Estimated blood loss and postoperative hospitalization appear shorter than historical controls, at the cost of longer operating time. Oncologic outcome requires longer follow-up.
