Objective: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of laparascopic surgery; and retrospective analysis of the follow up data of surgically treated endometrium cancer patients in our gynecology clinic in last 2 years
Material and Method: 31 patients who are operated for endometrium cancer were analysed retrospectively.
Results: Mean age of patients were 58.4±11.7. Mean tumor size was 2.1±1.5 cm. 45.1% of patients were post menopausal and 29.0% of patients had diabetes. 87.0% of patients were diagnosed as endometrioid type adenocarcinoma.2 patients had cervical and 3 patients had lymphovascular area invasion. Laparascopy was successfully performed in 93.5% of patients, obturator nerve injury occured in only 1 patient. CA125 level was found to be related with the stage of disease in regression analysis.
Conclusion: Laparascopy is very effective and safe method of surgery in oncology, if experience is sufficient. CA125 level might be used in prediction of advanced stage disease.
