The second patient did not have a PET scan; she had stage IIIA disease at diagnosis, two years before the diagnosis of mediastinal lymphadenopathy and had successfully undergone TAH-BSO
and subsequent chemotherapy with Taxol-Cisplatin IV, neither patient had any documented mediastinal lymphadenopathy on initial staging CT scan.
Total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (TAH-BSO
) operation was recommended by the gynecology clinic.
Debulking surgery typically involves performing a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (TAH-BSO
), complete omentectomy and resection of any metastatic disease.
Following her TAH-BSO
, the patient was suffering from insomnia, severe hot flashes, and dry vagina.
The PORTEC-2 trial included patients at high-intermediate risk for endometrial carcinoma who had undergone a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (TAH-BSO
) without lymphadenectomy.
In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled crossover trial of 75 women who experienced impaired sexual function after TAH-BSO
, physiological testosterone therapy administered by a transdermal patch significantly increased the frequency of sexual activity and pleasure (Figure 2).
