Total infralevator pelvic exenteration is a surgical therapeutic option in patients with central pelvic relapse of cervical cancer who have received previous chemoradiotherapy.1

In these patients, intra-operative electron radiotherapy can be an opportunity to consolidate the treatment in those with close or microscopically positive margins.2

In this Video 1, we show the case of a 75-year-old woman diagnosed with a stage IVA squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix, with rectum involvement and infiltration of the right parametrium. The workup did not show distant metastases beyond the pelvic disease.
