Abstract:   (177 Views)

Laparoscopy is a surgical procedure which has been used in gynecologic cancer since 1994. With technology progressing during years, there are so many kinds of minimally invasive surgeries in gynecologic malignancies. Regarding the importance of overall survival and progression of free survival in cancerous patients, we should consider this type of surgery very wisely not to compromise patient's prognosis. Considering all the points above, a review was performed to study the role of laparoscopy in gynecologic oncology including endometrial and cervical cancer. It can be concluded that laparoscopy is not safe in a disease with high risk of tumor spread. Also a good prognosis of cancer patients should not be jeopardized by doing incomplete laparoscopic surgery.
