The Role of Lymphadenectomy in Endometrial CancerKEHOE, SIOBHAN M. MD; MILLER, DAVID S. MDClinical Obstetrics & Gynecology: June 2011 - Volume 54 - Issue 2 - p 235–244 doi: 10.1097/GRF.0b013e318218577b Endometrial Cancer Abstract Author Information Abstract The role of lymphadenectomy in the management of endometrial cancer is rapidly evolving. Although retrospective reports have suggested that lymphadenectomy is associated with a therapeutic benefit, recent prospective trials have questioned the therapeutic effect of lymphadenectomy. Lymphadenectomy remains the gold standard for detecting metastatic disease to the regional nodes. In this review, we discuss the controversies surrounding lymphadenectomy for endometrial cancer.
