Endometrial carcinoma is the most commonly reported gynaecologic malignancy in industrialized countries. Traditionally the surgical treatment of endometrial cancer is total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, and peritoneal washing cytology. Alternative surgical procedures have been proposed compared to abdominal hysterectomy: increased number of issues about laparoscopy shows the common trend to use this technique. Literature largely described advantages of the laparoscopic procedure compared to abdominal and vaginal surgery. Long-term follow-up series are not available; further investigation into survival and recurrence rates is indicated.
