Introduction: Abdominal radical trachelectomy (ART) for tumors of the uterine cervix can be performed while the pregnancy is ongoing, but the success rates so far are reduced.
Case series presentation: ART was performed in three patients with cervical cancer diagnosed during pregnancy, with a triple aim to offer a radical surgery for cervical cancer, but also to preserve the ongoing pregnancy and fertility. The ART was successful in one patient, and she delivered a healthy baby at term, by cesarean section. The other 2 patients experienced obstetrical complications and lost their pregnancies after ART, but in one of the cases, fertility was preserved.
Conclusions: Radical trachelectomy could be performed as alternative therapy for pregnant women with invasive malignancies of the cervix. This procedure may prevent female patients to lose a much-desired pregnancy, their fertility, as well as their maternity.
