IJGC EiC Summer Podcasts: SHAPE Trial with Marie Plante

 In this rebroadcasted episode of the IJGC podcast, Editor-in-Chief Dr. Pedro Ramirez is joined by Dr. Marie Plante to discuss the SHAPE trial. Dr. Plante has a major interest in minimally invasive surgical (MIS) approaches in the treatment of gynecologic cancers and in fertility-preserving surgery for young women with cervical cancer. She is currently leading two important international trials the SHAPE trial and the Contessa trial. 



  1. In low-risk cervical cancer, simple hysterectomy was not inferior to radical hysterectomy.
  2. There was no difference in overall adverse events between simple and radical hysterectomy.
  3. Better quality of life and sexual function was documented with simple hysterectomy compared to radical hysterectomy.
