Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to retrospectively analyze the clinical and pathological data of 118 cases of uterine carcinosarcoma. Prognostic factors and management were evaluated. chi 2 and log-rank tests were performed. Surgical stage at time of surgery was the most important prognostic factor (P < 0.0001); in stage I-II disease depth of myometrial invasion and lymphatic/vascular space involvement were significantly related to outcome, whereas other factors were not useful. In stage I-II patients postoperative radiation did not improve 5-year disease-free survival. Survival curves in patients with advanced disease treated with cisplatin-containing regimens or with doxorubicin (without cisplatin)-containing regimens were overlapping.
