Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the importance of complete surgical-pathologic staging in clinical Stage 1 endometrial adenocarcinomas. Methods: 58 consecutive women with clinical Stage 1 endometrial adnnocarcinomas were investigated. Results: Isolated paraaortic lymph node invasion was found in one patient without pelvic node invasion (5%). Conclusions: We recommend a complete lymphadenectomy instead of selective lymphadenectomy. With this practice the real stages of the cases can be determined and over treatment can be avoided.
