  Purpose

The goal of this clinical research study is to collect information on patients who had or are going to have laparoscopy performed at M. D. Anderson. Researchers want to use this information to learn the effects of laparoscopic surgery on patients over time.

Study Type: Observational
Official Title: Data Collection of Demographics and Perioperative Care of Patients Undergoing Laparoscopic Surgery in the Department of Gynecologic Oncology

Further study details as provided by M.D. Anderson Cancer Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Collect, both prospectively and retrospectively, data on demographics, perioperative care, and patient outcomes in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery. [ Time Frame: 21 Years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Organize clinical information, patient characteristics, treatment, and laparoscopic outcome data into a single data repository, maintained in a secure platform that will provide an archive for future research. [ Time Frame: 21 Years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 5000
Study Start Date: June 2006
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2027 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Laparoscopic Surgery Database Other: Laparoscopic Surgery Data Collection
Prospectively and retrospectively collect data on patients who had laparoscopic surgery since January 1, 1990 forward. Data from the initial patient visit note, consultation notes, operative report, discharge summary, and follow-up progress notes will be entered into the database.

Detailed Description:

If you agree to take part in this study, your demographic information (such as your age, race, medical and surgical history, and type of cancer) will be collected. Information about the type of surgical procedure performed on you, your care during and after your surgery, any problems related to your surgery, and details about your follow-up care will be entered into a research database. This information will be collected from patients seen at M. D. Anderson since January 1, 1990. It will be used for future research studies.

The research database will be updated, after about 1 year, to include information on your disease outcome, treatment, and/or follow-up care. This information will be collected from your medical record, if possible. If it is not in your medical record, you may again be contacted so that researchers can learn this information.

Your participation in this study will continue up to 5 years after your laparoscopic procedure.

This is an investigational study. Up to 1,000 patients will take part in this study. All will be enrolled at M. D. Anderson.
