Abstract

In gynecologic malignant tumors, the metastasis of Para-Aortic Lymph Node (PALN) has important reference value for prognosis and postoperative treatment. Para-Aortic Lymphadenectomy (PAL) provides a reliable basis for assessing the metastasis of para-aortic lymph node. However, the extraperitoneal para-aortic lymphadenectomy can expose the surgical field of vision more clearly and reduce the intestinal stimulation of the operation. With the increasing demand for the quality of life, the concept of “no scar” has been paid more attention by the majority of gynecologists, and the laparoendoscopic single-site surgery was born. In this paper, from the development of laparoendoscopic single-site surgery, combined with the advantages and technical difficulties of laparoendoscopic single-site surgery, discuss the application of extraperitoneal para-aortic lymphadenectomy in gynecologic malignant tumors by laparoendoscopic single-site surgery through a comprehensive analysis of single-site vs. multiple-site laparoscopic use of extraperitoneal para-aortic lymphadenectomy in domestic and overseas.
