BACKGROUND To compare the long-term survival outcomes between laparoscopic radical hysterectomy (LRH) and open radical hysterectomy (ORH). METHOD We matched patients with stage IA2 to IIA cervical cancer with known risk factors for recurrence who underwent ORH and LRH. RESULTS Compared with ORH (n = 263), LRH (n = 263) did not have higher risks of recurrence [hazard ratio (HR) = 1.28; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.62-2.64] or death (HR = 1.46; 95% CI 0.62-3.43). Even in patients with… CONTINUE READING
