Nuclide-assisted radical surgery for cervical carcinoma was developed in three stages. The improved rate of lymphnode removal thus obtained was associated with a reduced mortality from recurrent tumor both in cases with and without lymphnode involvement. Results in the third period under review suggest that patients undergoing incomplete lymphadenectomy have a significantly poorer prognosis than those with complete removal lymphnodes.
