Prof Christina Fotopoulou - Imperial College London Healthcare Trust, London, UK

Prof Fotopolou speaks with ecancer at BCGS 2018 about the oncologic safety of open and minimally invasive surgical approaches for cervical cancer.

She highlights the early closure of the trial due to a six times higher risk of death for the laparoscopic surgical treatments compared to the open procedure.

Prof Fotopolou also discusses a world-wide survey of surgeons, many of whom say they will continue to stand by surgical robotic procedures, despite retrospective studies finding robotic procedures showing their own risk profile.
