Abstract

Radical pelvic surgery including pelvic lymphadenectomy in the obturator fossa has become a routine endoscopically performed procedure in patients with gynecologic cancer. Nerve injury during these procedures is rare. However, to choose the best surgical procedure, the surgeon must be aware of the anatomical landmarks of the obturator fossa and of various injury mechanisms. Herein is presented the case of obturator nerve transection during laparoscopic pelvic lymph node dissection, radical vulvectomy, and inguinal lymphadenectomy and its immediate laparoscopic repair in a 56-year-old patient.
