Characteristics of excluded studies [ordered by study ID]

StudyReason for exclusion

Bramhall 1999This study reported on a single cohort of participants in which all women received total pelvic exenteration for a range of cancer types

Hathout 2010This study was presented as a poster abstract at the CARO-ACRO 2010 meeting. Although investigators reported a comparison of pelvic exenteration (n = 15) and salvage radiotherapy (n = 13) for women with locally recurrent cervical cancer, statistical adjustment was not used in any of the analyses

Kasamatsu 2005This study reported a comparison of 664 stage IB to IVA participants after surgery or radiotherapy for cervical carcinoma. However, although investigators presented a breakdown of women with recurrence (n = 193, 67 of which were located in the pelvis alone), they reported outcomes only for those who were given salvage therapy (anterior, posterior or total exenteration (n = 3) vs radiotherapy (n = 5))

Monaghan 1985This reference was a review based on a description of the surgical technique and postoperative complications

Monaghan 1997This reference was a discussion of exenteration and its general benefits and harms in women with gynaecological cancer

Park 2007This study reported on a single cohort of participants in which all women received total pelvic exenteration for a range of cancer types

Peiretti 2012This reference was a systematic review that identified no studies for inclusion in the review

Robertson 1994This study reported on a single cohort of participants in which all women underwent pelvic exenteration for both advanced and recurrent cancer and for a range of cancer types
