Case report on rhabdomyolysis after minimally invasive surgery for squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix and adhesions due to deep infiltrating endometriosis
We report on a 39-year-old nulligravida who developed rhabdomyolysis after prolonged laparoscopic surgery for cervical cancer and adhesions due to deep infiltrating endometriosis. Minimally invasive surgical procedures offer major advantages in gynecologic cancer surgery, and preventive methods provide effective pressure reduction and play a crucial role in avoiding physical harm after surgical positioning. Nevertheless, a combination of surgical and patient-related risk factors may increase the risk of postsurgical onset of rhabdomyolysis. Immediate referral to a specialist center is necessary to ensure prevention of seri...
