Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: FloSeal group
This group will undergo appropriate cancer surgery for each patient with pelvic lymph node dissection +/- para-aortic lymph node dissection. At the completion of lymph node dissection, 2 vials of Floseal will be applied to each lymph node area.
Drug: FloSeal application
At the completion of lymph node dissection, 2 vials of Floseal will be applied to each lymph node area.
No Intervention: No FloSeal group
All surgical procedures of control group is the same with study group except that Floseal is not applicated in control group.
