Abstract

Standard management of stage IB1 cervical cancer in pregnancy is radical hysterectomy with fetus in situ if diagnosis precedes viability, or cesarean radical hysterectomy. Postpartum abdominal radical trachelectomy was performed as an alternative, fertility-preserving surgery in a 30-year-old nulliparous woman diagnosed with stage IB1 cervical at 21 weeks' gestation.
