Introduction: The article presents a protocol of a cross-sectional study of mental health of pregnant women in relation to the coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) pandemic. The primary aim is to compare differences in anxiety and depression scores of pregnant women between countries affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The secondary aim is to assess demographic, economic, and social aspects affecting maternal anxiety and depression scores among pregnant women worldwide in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, we will be able to compare differences in perception of the different aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic (social distancing, restrictions related to delivery) between countries and according to the epidemic status (number of infected patients, number of reported deaths). The comparisons will also be done according to the COVID-19 status of the participants.

Methods And Analysis: It is a web-based anonymous survey of pregnant women living in countries affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey is comprised of 3 sections:Web-based recruitment for health research has proven to be cost-effective and efficient. At current times with the COVID-19 pandemic, limited resources and social distancing restrictions, performing a mental health study involving pregnant women on a large international scale cannot be safely conducted without involving social-media.The fears of pregnant women fall into 3 categories: the medical condition, the economic status and the organization of daily activity.The study has received approval of the medical ethics committee and has been registered on Clinicaltrials.gov. Results will be published in peer-reviewed journals and made public through all available media.

Introduction: Endometrial carcinoma is one of the most common neoplasms in gynecological oncology and the most common genital cancer in women in developed countries. The 5-year overall survival rate depends on the FIGO stage. For patients with stage I endometrial cancer it is estimated as 80%. Traditionally, the main treatment of endometrial cancer consists of total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and, in some histological or clinical stages, with additional pelvic lymphadenectomy. The main surgical approach so far for women with endometrial cancer has been laparotomy. However, in the last decades there have been many reports stating that the survival rate in such cases is similar after laparoscopy and laparotomy. Some researchers claim that laparoscopy is as effective as laparotomy, and it might be much more precise than laparotomy thanks to its special optic system.

Aim: To establish the method of choice for treatment of stage I endometrial cancer.

Material And Methods: Comparing the preliminary results from data collected during surgical procedures performed at the First Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the Medical Centre of Postgraduate Education in Warsaw and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the Rural Hospital in Garwolin.

Results: Laparoscopy is as effective as laparotomy, and it might be much more precise than laparotomy.

Conclusions: Taking into consideration all the above arguments, if an experienced endoscopic surgeon and proper laparoscopic equipment are available, laparoscopy might become the method of choice for treatment of stage I endometrial cancer.
