Complications of radical surgery for cervical cancer- bibliographic survey


Author(s): Ryszard Poręba, Janusz Pozowski

Despite the accessibility of gynecologic examination, incidence of cervical cancer remains high. Around 4000 new cases are registered annually, and 2000 women die of it. Radical hysterectomy with lymphadenectomy remains a method of choice in treatment of the women suffering from invasive cervical cancer in FIGO stages Ib and IIa. Such extensive surgery however bears an increased risk of intraoperative and postoperative complications. The objective of this paper is to present the variety of appearance and frequency of the complications according to the bibliographic findings.
