Abstract

In patients with cervical cancer, laparoscopic staging led to an upstaging of 83% of cases with significant impact on therapeutic strategies. Nodal debulking prior to chemoradiation improves the prognosis of node positive women. Pretherapeutic laparoscopic staging should be the basis of the primary chemoradiation in patients with cervical cancer.
