Cooperative Surgery with Gastroenterological Surgeons in Gynecologic Malignant Tumors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Secondary debulking surgery(SDF)for gynecologic malignancies may improve prognosis. However, recurrent lesions may be invasions of the intestinal tract and observed peritoneal dissemination. SDF can be safely carried out by performing cooperative surgery with a gastroenterological surgeon and gynecologists. Precise cooperation is indispensable for the operation, especially when it comes to aspects such as the contact method and perioperative management at that time. In our hospital, if the gynecologist suspects other organs invasion during a preoperative examination, they contact the gastroenterological surgeon in an elective manner. If other organs invasion is not clear during a preoperative examination or bowel injury occurs during surgery, the gastroenterological surgeon would be contacted urgently. To ensure smooth cooperation, it is necessary to run regular joint conferences. By sharing in planned and combining the expertise of all the department of interest, it is possible to perform highly curative and safe surgery.
