Abstract

BACKGROUND:

For 10,000-40,000 women each year, cervical cancer complicates pregnancy. Current therapy usually terminates the pregnancy and results in the loss of future fertility. Abdominal radical trachelectomy is a fertility-preserving alternative to radical hysterectomy for young women with cervical cancer.

CASES:

We report five pregnancies complicated by cervical cancer treated by abdominal radical trachelectomy with preservation of the concurrent pregnancy and the birth of two healthy term infants.

CONCLUSION:

Pregnancy complicated by concurrent cervical cancer can be managed with abdominal radical trachelectomy during pregnancy while preserving future fertility.
