In recent years a new less radical methods in the treatment of early cervical carcinoma has beenintroduced. The radical trachelectomy with laparoscopic pelvic lymphadenectomy represents oneof these options. This procedure is special in that it not only treats the cervical cancer in accept-able oncological fashion but at the same time preserves the fertility potential of the patients.Thus, this surgery represents a midway point in between conisation and radical hysterectomy.Based on our initial experience in this study the technique of radical trachelectomy is analysed indetail and at the same time the current literature on the subject is reviewed.We conclude that after careful selection of the patients this more conservative approach leads tothe same results comparable to classical radical surgery.
