  Purpose

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if a surgical procedure called an extraperitoneal laparoscopic lymphadenectomy followed by chemotherapy and tailored radiation therapy can help to control the disease for a longer time than standard-of-care chemotherapy and whole pelvic radiation therapy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Three Year Overall Survival Rate [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Overall survival (OS) with the product limit estimator of Kaplan and Meier

    overall survivals with pretherapeutic para-aortic surgical staging followed by tailored chemoradiation when compared to patients who undergo standard radiologic staging followed by whole pelvic chemoradiation therapy after PET scan only.
