PURPOSE: The Gynecologic Oncology group (GOG) 0263 trial is currently exploring whether adding chemotherapy to adjuvant radiotherapy improves recurrence-free and/or overall survival in stage IB-IIA cervical cancer patients with pathologic intermediate-risk factors. Using the National Cancer Data Base, we evaluated the benefit of adjuvant chemoradiotherapy over adjuvant radiotherapy alone in the community practice setting. MATERIALS: The analysis included 869 stage IB-IIA cervical cancer patients who underwent radical hysterectomy retrieving intermediate-risk factors justifying adjuvant therapy...

Malignancies of the uterus metastasize by direct invasion of neighboring structures, lymphatically or hematogenously. Endometrial and cervical cancers lymphatically spread to the pelvic and para-aortic lymph nodes. For endometrial cancer the depth of myometrial invasion, lymphosvascular space involvement (LVSI) and a microcystic, elongated and fragmented (MELF) glandular invasion pattern are predictors for lymph node metastases. Metastases to the pelvic lymph nodes occur in approximately 10 % of endometrial cancer patients and in 30 % of these cases the para-aortic lymph nodes are also involved...

BACKGROUND: The optimal surgical management and staging of borderline ovarian tumors (BOTs) are controversial. Institutions have different surgical approaches for the treatment of BOTs. Here, we performed a retrospective review of clinical characteristics, surgical management and surgical outcomes, and sought to identify variables affecting disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS) in patients with BOTs. METHODS: A retrospective review of ten gynecological oncology department databases in Turkey was conducted to identify patients diagnosed with BOTs...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of subsequent pelvic organ prolapse (POP) repair in women following radical hysterectomy versus total abdominal hysterectomy. METHODS: From the Danish National Patient Registry, we collected data on all radical hysterectomies, all total abdominal hysterectomies, and all POP operations performed in Denmark from 1 January 1977 to 31 December 2009. We excluded patients with prior POP repair, POP diagnosis, or concomitant POP repair at hysterectomy...

PURPOSE: Scintigraphic mapping of sentinel lymph node (SLN) is increasingly performed in patients with endometrial carcinoma although its routine clinical use is still under investigation. The purpose of this study was to compare preoperative SLN detection by means of SPECT/CT using pericervical (PC) versus hysteroscopic peritumoral (PT) injection. PATIENTS AND METHODS: One hundred forty consecutive patients with endometrial carcinoma who underwent surgery and preoperative SLN SPECT/CT with Tc-nanocolloid were included...

BACKGROUND: Chylous ascites is defined as the pathologic accumulation of lymphatic fluid within the peritoneal cavity and has been reported to complicate gynecologic surgeries, with an incidence of 0.17-2%. We report a case of chylous ascites after complex surgery for placenta percreta. CASE: A 26-year-old woman underwent cesarean delivery followed by bilateral uterine artery embolization and modified radical hysterectomy at 26 5/7 weeks of gestation for placenta percreta invading the urinary bladder...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the alterations on surgical outcomes after of the implementation of 3D laparoscopic technology for the surgical treatment of early-stage cervical carcinoma. METHODS: Data of patients undergoing type B radical hysterectomy (with or without bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy) and pelvic lymphadenectomy via 3D laparoscopy were compared with a historical cohort of patients undergoing type B radical hysterectomy via conventional laparoscopy. Complications (within 60 days) were graded per the Accordion severity system...

This study identified the incidence of parametrial involvement in low risk, early-stage cervical cancer patients and evaluated the factors associated with parametrial involvement. All stage IA2-IB1 cervical cancer patients who underwent radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy were retrospectively reviewed. Patients with squamous cell carcinoma or adenocarcinoma grade 1-2, tumour size less than 2 cm, no lymphovascular space invasion (LVSI), negative pelvic nodes and depth of stromal invasion (DSI) less than 10 mm were identified as the low-risk group...

INTRODUCTION: Rhabdomyosarcoma has known as a highly malignant soft tissue sarcoma. It has been the most common soft tissue sarcoma in childhood, accounting for about 3 to 4 % of all cases of childhood cancer. Rhabdomyosarcoma was rare in adults, accounting for 3% of all soft-tissue sarcomas. embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of female genital tract including uterine cervix in an adult was rare. CASE PRESENTATION: This study has reported a 33-year-old woman presented with abnormal vaginal discharge...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether vertical versus horizontal closure of the vaginal cuff during laparoscopic hysterectomy has an effect on postoperative vaginal length and pelvic organ prolapse. DESIGN: Prospective randomized controlled trial. Subjects were randomly assigned to vertical or horizontal vaginal cuff closure at the time of total laparoscopic hysterectomy. POP-Q tests were performed before surgery, two to four weeks after surgery, and three to four months after surgery...

OBJECTIVE: In order to evaluate the usefulness of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) for stage II cervical squamous cell carcinoma with a bulky mass, we retrospectively compared patients receiving NAC followed by radical hysterectomy (RH; NAC group) with patients who underwent RH without NAC (Ope group). PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study period was from June 2002 to March 2014. The subjects were 28 patients with a stage II bulky mass in the NAC group and 17 such patients in the Ope group...
