Abstract

Background: Data on patients with endometrial cancer converted to laparotomy are totally lacking. The aim of the present study was to evaluate surgical and oncological outcomes in patients with endometrial cancer scheduled for laparoscopic staging but converted to laparotomy.

Methods: Data of consecutive patients who had undergone surgery for staging endometrial cancer in seven Italian centers were reviewed. Patients’ characteristics and surgical and oncological data were noted and analyzed according to surgery, i.e. laparotomy, laparoscopy, and laparoscopy converted to laparotomy.

Results: Seventy-one out of 512 (13.9 %) patients scheduled to laparoscopy were converted to laparotomy for reasons related to anesthesiology [38/71 (53.5 %)] or surgery [33/71 (46.5 %)]. The conversion rate varied among stages [41/460 (8.9 %), 13/27 (48.1 %), 17/25 (68.0 %) in patients with stage I, II, and endometrial cancers, respectively]. Significant (P 

Conclusions: The surgical and oncological outcomes of converted patients are no different from those of patients staged successfully with laparoscopy or with laparotomy. The conversion to laparotomy should be not considered per se a complication.
