Objective. The objective of this study was to examine the feasibility of laparoscopic radical parametrectomy after previous hysterectomy. Methods. This was a prospective study of a patient with vaginal adenocarcinoma after previous simple hysterectomy. The technique of radical parametrectomy with vaginectomy and pelvic and aortic lymphadenectomy as used for open cases for years was performed laparoscopically. Results. The operating time was 270 min, the estimated blood loss was 200 mL, and the duration of hospitalization was 3 days. There were no intraoperative or postoperative complications. Conclusions. Radical parametrectomy with vaginectomy and pelvic and aortic lymphadenectomy can be successfully accomplished laparoscopically.
