Minimally invasive pelvic exenteration for gynaecological malignancy: A single-centre case series and review of the literature.

Eur J Obstet Gynecol Reprod Biol 2022 Jul 11;274:56-61. Epub 2022 May 11.

Academic Department of Gynaecological Oncology, Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust, Surrey, UK. Electronic address:

For those with certain recurrent gynaecological cancers where primary management such as chemo-radiotherapy has failed, or in cases of recurrence following primary surgery, pelvic exenteration (PE) is considered the only curative option. Whilst initially considered a morbid procedure, improved surgical techniques, advancing technology, and nuanced reconstructive options have facilitated more radical resections and improved morbidity and mortality. Open PE remains the gold standard approach, however, minimally invasive techniques for PE may lessen morbidity whilst achieving the same oncological outcomes. Read More
