RATIONALE: Laparoscopic surgery is a less invasive type of surgery for cancer of the uterus and may have fewer side effects and improve recovery. It is not known whether laparoscopic surgery is more effective than standard surgery in treating endometrial cancer.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying laparoscopic surgery to see how well it works compared to standard surgery in treating patients with endometrial cancer or cancer of the uterus.
- Compare the incidence of surgical complications, peri-operative morbidity, and mortality in patients with stage I or IIa, grade I-III endometrial cancer or uterine cancer undergoing surgical staging through laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy vs total abdominal hysterectomy.
- Compare the length of hospital stay after surgery in patients receiving these treatments.
- Compare the quality of life of patients receiving these treatments.
- Compare the incidence and location of disease recurrence in patients receiving these treatments.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
- Arm I: Patients undergo vaginal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo- oophorectomy (BSO) via laparoscopy.
- Arm II: Patients undergo total abdominal hysterectomy and BSO via conventional laparotomy.
Patients in both arms also undergo pelvic and para-aortic lymph node sampling. Quality of life is assessed at baseline, at 1, 3, and 6 weeks, and then at 6 months.
Patients are followed at 6 weeks, every 3 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 2,550 patients will be accrued for this study within at least 10 years.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of this study is to compare the short- and long-term survival of laparoscopic surgery and conventional open surgery for T4 colon cancer.
The standard procedure for treating colonic cancer is changing from open surgery to laparoscopic surgery. Following open colonic surgery patients are fatigued and loss body mass and have a...
Robotic surgery is a new technique with the benefits of a 3-dimensional view, the ability to use multidegree-of-freedom forceps, the elimination of physiological tremors, and a stable camera view. The...
Single-port laparoscopic surgery (SPLS) has gained popularity due to its cosmetic benefit, and therefore, has been applied to several kinds of benign operations, such as appendectomy and cholecystecto...
In colon cancer, T4 stage is still assumed to be a relative contraindication for laparoscopic surgery considering the oncological safety. The aim of this systematic review with meta-analysis was to ev...
Laparoscopic surgery is the current accepted approach in most pediatric surgical centers. In an attempt to further minimize the surgical trauma and improve cosmetic outcome, new techniques with a sing...
Laparoscopic surgery of rectal cancer has experienced more than 20 years of technical development and clinical research. Based on the published high-level clinical trials such as COREAN, COLOR Ⅱ, AC...
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

The edges of tissue removed in a surgery for assessment of the effectiveness of a surgical procedure in achieving the local control of a neoplasm and the adequacy of tumor removal. When the margin is negative or not involved by tumor (e.g., CANCER) it suggests all of the tumor has been removed by the surgery.
Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.
