Surgical management of endometrial cancer. A critical review.

Endometrial cancer (EC) is a common gynecological malignancy. Prognosis depends on 3 main factors: histological subtype, depth of invasion into the myometrium and lymph node involvement. Surgery remains the gold standard of treatment for this cancer. The aim of this article was to review the surgical approach and the new techniques along with the clarification of some controversial aspects concerning the management of advanced disease stages and the role of lymph node dissection. Surgery of EC remains the treatment of choice in the management of early stage disease. The role of lymph node dissection remains controversial.
