Abstract

In conclusion, laparoscopic techniques are useful for the evaluation and treatment of selected gynecologic malignancies and provide major benefits to patients. The benefits, however, can be expected only from gynecologic oncologists well-versed in advanced laparoscopic techniques. Results must be interpreted cautiously, depending on the laparoscopic expertise of the reporting authors. Numerous questions remain unanswered, particularly those associated with long-term recurrences and survival. The use of laparoscopic procedures for gynecologic malignancies must be considered investigational until adequate long-term survival data are available.
