A vascular graft for endometrial cancer groin recurrence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Background: Recurrent groin metastases from endometrial cancer that invades the femoral vasculature is debilitating and provides a management dilemma. Case: We present the first case of endometrial cancer with metastatic disease to the groin vasculature palliated with percutaneous endovascular embolization and stent grafting. Conclusion: Endovascular surgery provides an alternative option in those with metastatic endometrial cancer of the groin to improve the patient's quality of life by avoiding a major surgery with difficult postoperative recovery and prolonging the timecourse until the next major bleed.
