While gynecologic malignancy is uncommon in women with conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse and bladder cancer, urologists should be acquainted with the relevant gynecologic literature as it pertains to their surgical care of female patients. While taking the patient history, urologists should be aware of prior cervical cancer screening and ask about vaginal bleeding, which can be a sign of uterine cancer. Urologic surgeons should also discuss the role of concomitant prophylactic oophorectomy and/or salpingectomy for ovarian cancer risk reduction at the time of pelvic surgery.

ConclusionSince technical difficulties with a limited number of hands, some complex surgery like radical hysterectomy has rarely been performed through LESS approach[1]. The dissection of vesicocevical and parametrial space are critical to radical hysterectomy, dissatisfied exposure during the procedure are the majority difficulties[2]. In the video, surgery for cervical cancer was performed successfully and also met the FIGO standards for radical hysterectomy (Type C). Our video demonstrated that the varied and flexible suspension played a significant role to provide a clear vision and sufficiently exposure, it was feasib...
