Adjuvant therapy for stage I uterine sarcoma.


A retrospective evaluation of adjuvant therapy in 64 patients with Stage I sarcoma was undertaken. A combination of operation and adjuvant radiation was compared with operation alone. A decreased recurrence of both pelvic and distant tumor was noted for endometrial sarcoma but not for leiomyosarcoma treated with adjuvant radiation. A Cox regression analysis showed a trend for improved survival, but the results were not statistically significant. Survival after vaginal cuff recurrence and treatment with radiation therapy (two patients) or combined radiation and chemotherapy (one patient) is reported. Seven patients received adjuvant chemotherapy with Adriamycin-based regimens. Chemotherapy alone did not statistically decrease recurrence in this small sample.
