A Randomized Phase III Trial Comparing Radical Hysterectomy and Pelvic Node Dissection vs Simple Hysterectomy and Pelvic Node Dissection in Patients With Low-Risk Early Stage Cervical Cancer (SHAPE)
The reason this study is being done is to see if a simple hysterectomy is as good as a
radical hysterectomy in preventing cancer of the cervix from returning, and whether, because
less tissue surrounding the uterus is removed during surgery, there are fewer side-effects
after the surgery and in the long-term.
