In brief: Pelvic exenteration
A pelvic exenteration in a woman is the removal of most or all pelvic structures (bladder, uterus, rectum) for cancer with reconstruction.
In gyn oncology, it is most frequently a posterior exenteration (uterus, part of vagina, rectum) for ovarian cancer. A total exenteration is often done for recurrent cervical cancer or vulvar cancer.
