The Authors report their experience in 49 operations of radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy in the treatment of stage I b and stage II cervical cancer. They describe particularly the precocious and late urinary complications and the arrangements made for their prevention. We had no uretero-vaginal fistula in 21 of the 49 patients, on whom a kind of roof and floor around the terminal tract of the ureters was created by placing some surgical stitches between the posterior wall of the bladder and the anterior lateral wall of the rectum.
