Tozzi R., Fachechi G., Gubbala K., Cianci S., Campanile RG., Majd HS.
Endoscopic surgery offers the advantages of quicker recovery, shorter hospital stay and a lower risk of complications such as infections, blood loss, wound infection, ileus and incisional hernias. The feasibility of endoscopy in gynecological cancer has been shown in numerous papers demonstrating equivalence in terms of radicality. Evidence for oncological outcome in terms of survival has been slower to arrive, but there is significant evidence being reported now in all three of the major gynecological cancers.
