Abstract

Study Objective: To compare perioperative and long-term outcomes related to laparoscopic and open abdominal surgical management of cervical cancer. Design: Propensity-matched comparison of prospectively collected data (Canadian Task Force classification II-1). Setting: University teaching hospital. Patients: Sixty-five propensity-matched patient pairs (130 patients) undergoing either laparoscopy or open abdominal surgical procedures to treat cervical cancer. Intervention: Radical hysterectomy plus lymphadenectomy was performed via the laparoscopic (LRH) or open abdominal approach (RAH). Measurement and Main Results: Baseline characteristics of the study populations were similar. In the LRH group the procedure was converted to open surgery in 2 patients (2%). Compared with the RAH group, patients undergoing LRH experienced less blood loss (200 vs 500mL; p
