Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Today, the multidisciplinary management of patients with gynecological cancers represents a continuous challenge. This is mainly due to the two main outcomes for this subset of patients: survival, related to adequate and radical treatment, and quality of life, linked to the chance to be submitted to minimally invasive surgery that aims to preserve the reproductive and hormonal functionality of young patients and reduce postoperative morbidity. The development of treatment pathways aimed at maintaining a good quality of life and fertility for young patients is still investigated and debated today. Even postmenopausal patients can benefit from the use of less invasive surgical techniques and medical therapies, both in terms of a minimally invasive approach, such as the sentinel lymph node technique, and for a reduction in exposure to toxic drugs or radiation based on the prognostic stratification, including elements of molecular biology.

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a comprehensive overview of the advances in the diagnosis, prognostic stratification, and treatment of gynecologic oncologic patients. Therefore, researchers in the field of gynecologic oncology, surgical oncology, and reproductive medicine are encouraged to submit their findings as original articles or reviews to this Special Issue.
