Table 2 The frequency and probability of sarcoma in general and according to type of surgery as calculated by the number and types of operations performed in lifetime and the total number of sarcomas diagnosed in a lifetime by each surgeon

From: Survey among ESGE members on leiomyosarcoma morcellation incidence

Type of surgery Number of doctors Total number surgeries by all doctors in their lifetime Total number of sarcomas identified in their lifetime Probability of sarcoma per 1000

  1. aThe sum of the general question of the total number of uterine sarcomas calculated and seen in lifetime (Table 1: sum Q2 = 216). The sum of the diagnosed sarcomas after each individual type of surgery in lifetime as shown in Table 1: sum (Q5 + Q7 + Q9 + Q11) = 221)
