Cervical cancer is the fourth most frequent cancer in women around the world. Surgery is the first choice for treatment in early stages.

The standard surgical treatment is Type C1 Radical Hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy. Laparotomy is the typical surgical approach used in Uruguay. Oncologic results are similar for the different surgical approaches. The study presents the first case series of minimally invasive cervical treatment of cervical cancer published in Uruguay.


descriptive, prospective study of a series of cases. All patients operated at the Gynecological Clinic “A”, Pereira Rossell Hospital from January 2013 until December 2016 for invasive cervical cancer with minimally invasive approach as the primary treatment were included in the study.

Average ager: 44 years old. Average surgical time: 261 minutes. Average post-surgery hospital stay: 5 days. 2 cases changed into laparotomy. An average of 14.4 pelvic lymph nodes were resected.
