Laparoscopic Surgery or Standard Surgery in Treating Patients With Endometrial Cancer or Cancer of the Uterus

2014-08-27 03:59:01 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- 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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.

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.
