Experimental: Hysteroscopic uterine resection
This is a prospective single-arm surgical intervention trial.
Procedure: Hysteroscopic uterine resection
Hysteroscopic Resection will be evaluated as a fertility-sparing treatment for patients with early Endometrial Cancer or Endometrial Hyperplasia (atypical or persisting typical) who fail progestin therapy. Failure of progesterone therapy is defined as: (a) Unsuccessful eradication of hyperplasia or cancer in the uterus or (b) Intolerance to the side effects of th hormone therapy.
HR is a common gynecologic procedure that is offered to women for treatment of several benign gynecologic conditions. The conduct, risks, and complications of it are well-understood. In relation to this protocol, it is the indication for HR that constitutes the experimental intervention including the assessment of it's outcome. Patients deemed appropriate for hysteroscopic endomyometrial resection will be counselled on the nature of the procedure along with its risks and complications.
- Conception rate of women attempting pregnancy [ Time Frame: 3 years post-resection ]live births / women attempting pregnancy
- Overall conception rate [ Time Frame: 3 years post-resection ]live births / all women participating in study, including those who failed hysteroscopic resection and have a hysterectomy
- Local disease control rate (short-term failure of hysteroscopic resection) [ Time Frame: 3 months post-resection ]Patients with persisting atypical hyperplasia or Grade I endometrial cancer / patients treated with hysteroscopic resection
- Distant disease control rate (long-term failure of hysteroscopic resection) [ Time Frame: 3 years post-resection ]patients developing distant recurrence / patients treated with hysteroscopic resection
- Complications/side-effects [ Time Frame: 3 years post-resection ]The investigators will tabulate complications/side-effects of the procedure such as the rate of uterine perforation, uterine adhesion, procedure infection, and others.
