Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Gynecological cancers still represent one of the leading causes of female death around the world. Nevertheless, the mortality and morbidity of these diseases have been on a downward trend in recent years, thanks to technological advances in surgery, oncology, and palliative care.

This Special Issue was created with the intention of collecting the latest findings in the scientific field that may refine a clinical practice or clarify the “grey areas” still present in the scientific literature. This Special Issue comes in the light of major and groundbreaking scientific discoveries that have revolutionized the approach to major gynecologic oncologic diseases, such as the LACC trial by Ramirez, which questioned the appropriateness of minimally invasive approaches in the surgical treatment of cervical carcinoma, or the SOLO-1 Trial, which introduced the use of PARP-Inhibitors for the treatment of ovarian carcinomas, opening up new scenarios still to be explored today. In addition, the increasing spread of robotic surgery, as well as the refinement of laparoscopic instruments, offer new technical horizons previously difficult to imagine. Further, the growing knowledge regarding the molecular signature of gynecological cancer and radio diagnostic advantages offers physicians the opportunity to diagnose and treat gynecological cancer early and personalize treatment. Finally, a not insignificant aspect in the management of gynecologic oncology patients is the important scientific progress that has occurred with the application of ERAS protocols and the optimization of palliative care. The scientific community is experiencing a very prosperous period that is resulting in a steady improvement in clinical care. Our Special Issue was created to collect the latest findings in these areas. We, therefore, invite our authors to contribute their most important testimonials in the form of case reports, original articles, review articles, and meta-analyses.
