Sexual, bladder and bowel function following different minimally invasive techniques of radical hysterectomy in patients with early-stage cervical cancer

ConclusionPelvic floor dysfunction commonly deteriorates and negatively impacts on quality of life after minimally invasive radical hysterectomy, especially bowel function after TMMR. Pelvic floor symptoms should routinely be addressed pre- and postoperatively.

AbstractIntroductionSurgery by open radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer is associated with sexual dysfunction as well as lymphedema and bladder problems. Our aim was to assess the impact of robot ‐assisted laparoscopic radical hysterectomy (RRH) with pelvic lymphadenectomy for early‐stage cervical cancer on sexual, bowel, bladder, and lymphatic function and to measure ovarian function after RRH.Material and methodsTwenty ‐six women with early‐stage cervical cancer during 2011‐2013 were investigated before and 1 year after RRH using a validated questionnaire measuring psychological well‐being and sexua...

Conclusions: The nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy shows a similar oncological outcome compared with the CRH. The more radical Swift version of nerve-sparing techniques is preferable to the former LNSRH procedure.

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the global health status of long-term cervical cancer survivors (LCCS) who survived for more than 4  years after curative radiation treatment (RT).Patients and methodsMedical records of 562  women treated with RT in our institution between 2003 and 2010 were reviewed. Excluding 259 women who died of disease or were lost to follow-up, disease status and late morbidities were evaluated in 303 LCCS. Quality of life (QoL) was analyzed in 168 LCCS using a questionnaire from the Europea n Organization for the Research and Treatment of Cancer, and the results were compared ...

Abstract Although a rare cancer in the developed world due to the success of cervical screening programmes, cervical cancer remains one of the most common cancers diagnosed in women under the age of 35 years old. Radical hysterectomy and more recently radical trachelectomy have been highly effective in curing the majority of women with early stage disease. Many, however, are left with long-term ‘survivorship’ issues including bowel, bladder and sexual dysfunction. In view of these chronic co-morbidities, many clinicians now consider whether a less radical approach to surgery may be an option for ...

Conclusions: The LNSRH is a safe, feasible, and easy procedure for trained laparoscopic surgeons. Patients who underwent LNSRH had a more satisfactory quality of life than patients who underwent LRH.
