Special Issue Information
Surgical treatment remains a cornerstone in the management of early stages of all gynaecological cancers. The two fields entailed in our topic are closely related and highly dependent on each other. The tailoring of surgical procedures requires an accurate clinical staging, and vice versa, the utilization of modern imaging modalities improves patient outcomes only if followed by a high-quality surgery.
The management of all gynaecological cancers has evolved dramatically within last 10 years thanks to systematic clinical research. Solid evidence has been gathered for new approaches (less or more radical procedures), thanks to multicentric, international and multidisciplinary collaboration.
We encourage you to submit to this Issue all articles bringing new evidence on the diagnostics and management of gynaecological cancers, precising individual steps in clinical practice algorithms, or challenging traditional recommendations.Prof. Dr. Nadeem Abu-Rustum
