Abstract

Conization can represent the definitive treatment for stage IA1, if surgical margins are cancer-free, independently of LVSI. A conservative surgical approach could also be considered in women with IA2 cervical cancer when preservation of fertility is strongly requested. A close long-term surveillance should be scheduled for conservatively-treated women.
