Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Laparoscopy, a minimally invasive surgical technique, has gained significant importance in the field of gynecologic oncology. However, recent evidence proved that it may be associated with increased oncological risk in a selected patient group. These results raised many open questions that need to be investigated by the scientific community. Therefore, the place of laparoscopy in gynecologic oncology is rapidly evolving due to new scientific data. We invite you to submit your recent work on the following topics to our Special Issue:

Diagnosis: Laparoscopy is employed for the diagnosis of various gynecological cancers, including ovarian, uterine, and cervical cancers.

Staging: Laparoscopy facilitates the staging of gynecologic malignancies by enabling the confirmation of the extent of tumor spread within the abdomen and pelvis.

Surgical treatment: Laparoscopy is increasingly used for the surgical management of gynecologic cancers, including primary or secondary tumor debulking, hysterectomy, lymph node dissection, and en bloc removal of affected tissue.

Palliative care: In cases where curative treatment is not possible, laparoscopy and associated procedures can be used for palliative procedures to relieve symptoms and improve the quality of life for patients with advanced gynecologic cancers.

Fertility preservation: Laparoscopy can be utilized for fertility-sparing procedures in young women with early-stage gynecologic malignancies.

Despite its benefits, the use of laparoscopy in gynecologic oncology may be limited in certain cases. Close monitoring and specialized training are essential to ensure that laparoscopic procedures are performed effectively and with minimal risk to the patient.

We look forward to receiving your manuscripts.

Best regards,
