Abstract

Study Objective: Resection of bulky lymph nodes in gynecologic oncology is a challenging procedure. Considering the risk of intraoperative vascular injury, a technique to avoid severe complications is mandatory. In this study, we aimed to analyze the feasibility of laparoscopic ultraradical lymph node debulking using Yasargil clamps in patients with gynecologic cancer with bulky lymph node metastases.Design: Multicenter retrospective case series (ClinicalTrialg.gov ID: NCT05318170), between September 2010 and April 2020.Setting: Units of Gynecologic Oncology.Patients: Patients with gynecologic cancer with bulky lymph node metastases.Interventions: Laparoscopic ultraradical lymph node debulking using Yasargil clamps.Measurements and Main Results: Forty-three patients with gynecologic cancer with bulky pelvic and/or aortic lymph nodes metastases undergoing laparoscopic lymph node debulking surgery using Yasargil clamps were included. Median surgical time was 300 minutes (range, 120- 550 minutes); median estimated blood loss was 170 mL (range, 0- 700 mL). Median size of lymph nodes was 50 mm (range, 25- 100). R0 resection was achieved in all cases. Four intraoperative complications (9.3%) occurred. No conversion to open surgery was required. There were 8 postoperative complications, classified grade 2 or worse. There were no cases with intra- or postoperative mortality.Conclusion: In our experience, in carefully selected patients with gynecologic cancer with bulky lymph nodes, laparoscopic lymph node debulking using Yasargil clamps could be considered a valid option to avoid potential severe vascular intraoperative complications.
