Abstract

In 1988 the International Federation of Gynecologists and Obstetricians (FIGO) developed a surgical staging system for endometrial cancer. The FIGO staging system was recently revised in 2009 to reflect our growing understanding of the natural history of endometrial cancer. In this review, we describe the revised 2009 FIGO staging system for tumors of the uterine corpus and examine the effect of the new changes in the staging criteria.
