NUNEZ V, Felipe et al. ABORDAJE LAPAROSCÓPICO EN CÁNCER DE ENDOMETRIO. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2009, vol.74, n.3, pp.171-178. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262009000300006.

Endometrial cancer is a relevant gynecologic neoplasm, with accelerated changes in its management. Surgery is the treatment of choice, but it can have a high rate of complications and delay in adjuvant therapies due to the surgical trauma that it inflicts. This article reviews the role of laparoscopy in the management of women with endometrial cancer, highlighting the oncologic safety, benefits and complications. Comparing laparotomy with laparoscopy, in experienced hands, it has the same results concerning to survival, recurrence and complete staging, with a lower rate of complications. Celioscopy could be the tool of the future in the management of endometrial cancer.

Keywords : endometrial cancer; lymphadenectomy; laparoscopy; laparotomy.
