abstract

  • The incidence of LN metastasis in ESS is commonly associated with gross extrauterine disease, extensive myoinvasion, and LVI. Since myoinvasion and LVI status often are not assessable at the time of hysterectomy, LN dissection remains a reasonable option at primary surgery. The rate of adnexal metastasis appears to be negligible in the absence of gross adnexal and extrauterine tumor.
