About the journal and this issue

  • Greta Dreyer University of Pretoria


The editorial board of SAJGO aims to publish original South African research reports. We would like to not only be the mouthpiece of the SASGO, but also the preferred journal for all our members to publish locally relevant research findings. Two articles that appear in the current journal report on research conducted on the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of endometrial cancer. Although not all experts will agree that frozen section is an important step in the operative management of this cancer, it is important to reflect on its usefulness. This discussion also opens, once again, the debate on the role of lymph node dissection. In my opinion, it is high time that we agree that more than one correct approach exists, and that we do not have a perfect set of rules that will apply to all patients and all surgeons.
