Abstract

To assess the patterns of lymphatic spread in cervical carcinoma, radical hysterectomy with systematic lymphadenectomy was performed in 66 patients FIGO stage IB-IIA 4 cm to stage IV. The latter patients were treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT). Parametria were evaluated by the giant section technique in 109 patients. In 40 of these, the superficial and deep layers of the vesicouterine ligament, the sacrouterine ligament, and the distal part of the cardinal ligament were separately evaluated. The median number of nodes removed was 48 pelvic (range 20-107) and 22 aortic (range 7-64). Positive nodes were found in 14 (21%) stage IB-IIA
