Abstract

Several authors have proposed the use of a less aggressive surgery (i.e. conization, trachelectomy plus laparoscopic lymphadenectomy, modified or type 2 radical hysterectomy) for patients affected by early stages invasive cervical carcinoma. Tumor size and pelvic nodal status are parameters that must be evaluated to better select a patient's population suitable of a less aggressive surgery, with the aim of sparing morbidity without jeopardizing cancer cure.
