Abstract

Background. Radical vaginal trachelectomy (RVT) is an acceptable approach when applied toward a select group of patients with early stage cervical carcinoma. It is less invasive, can maintain fertility, and can be ideal in patients with significant comorbid factors compared to abdominal approaches. A small subset of patients with a previous supracervical hysterectomy can pose a surgical dilemma. Case. An 81-year-old woman with a history of severe cardiac disease on routine gynecological examination was found to have adenocarcinoma in situ with a focus suspicious for invasion of the cervical stump diagnosed by cone biopsy. She previously had a supracervical hysterectomy for benign disease of the uterus. A RVT was performed as definitive treatment and the patient recovered without complications. Conclusion. In the rare case that presents with a history of supracervical hysterectomy, RVT with some technical modifications can still be considered as a therapeutic option for early stage cervical carcinoma.
