Abstract
Survival after radical hysterectomy (RH) for early-stage cervical cancer is good. Hence quality of life (QOL) after treatment is an important issue. Nerve-sparing radical hysterectomy (NSRH) improves QOL by selectively sparing innervation of bladder, bowel and vagina, reducing therapy-induced morbidity. However, the oncological outcome and the functional outcome after NSRH are subjects of debate. We aim to present the best possible evidence...
