Abstract

Cervical cancer is the 4th most common type of cancer in women across EU.  However, in women of reproductive age, the incidence of this pathology is high, therefore, over the last decades various strategies have been developed with the purpose of preserving fertility in oncological patients. This paper aimed at reviewing the existing literature information regarding the use of abdominal radical trachelectomy as a method of fertility sparing treatment for patients with early invasive cervical cancer injuries, without neglecting to emphasize on the surgical, obstetrical and oncological outcomes of this procedure.
