Aim: The aim of the present study was to estimate the incisional recurrence (IR) rate after endometrial cancer (EC) staging surgery and analyze characteristics of affected patients. Patients and Methods: We retrospectively searched for patients with EC at 2 institutions and analyzed the occurrence of IR after open, laparoscopic, or robotic surgery. Additionally, a review of the literature was performed. Results: Out of 2,636 patients with EC, 1,732 (65.7%), 461 (17.5%), and 443 (16.8%) had open, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery, respectively. Only 3 patients (0.11%) had IR, all after open surgery. Additionally, 38 cases of IR were identified from the literature. Patients with non-isolated IR had worse overall survival than patients with isolated IR (p=0.04). Among this latter group, combined treatments may be associated with improved survival outcome. Conclusion: IR after EC surgery is rare and may occur after minimally-invasive or open operations. Combination of local and systemic treatments may provide favorable outcomes for patients with isolated IR.
