There are limited data regarding postoperative complications and autoimmune reactions caused by surgery in early-stage cervical cancer patients who underwent laparoscopic radical resection (LRR). This study aimed to investigate the therapeutic effect of LRR of cervical cancer patients and its effect on cytokines.
168 patients with cervical cancer were enrolled. The patients were divided into open group and laparoscopic group according to the random number table method, with 84 cases in each group. The surgical-related indexes and the incidence of complications of the two groups were observed, and the IFN-γ, TNF, and IL-1/2/4/6/8/10/12 levels in peripheral blood were compared before and after surgery in both groups.
The operation time of the patients in the laparoscopic group was significantly shorter than that in the open group (119.56 ± 45.26 vs. 206.36 ± 54.39, P < 0.01). The intraoperative blood loss in the laparoscopic group was significantly less than that in the open group (155.29 ± 57.58 vs. 529.58 ± 162.4, P < 0.01). The postoperative visual analog scale (VAS) score was also significantly lower than that in the open group (3.65 ± 0.88 vs. 6.32 ± 1.12, P < 0.01). There was no significant difference in the incidence of complications between the two groups. The degree of inflammatory cytokines changes caused by LRR was less than that of open radical surgery (P < 0.001).
LRR surgery has less stress on patients with early cervical cancer than open surgery within 5 days after surgery, which has certain reference value for early cervical cancer treatment.
