This study was performed to evaluate the clinicopathologic prognostic factors and overall survival in patients with uterine endometrial cancer. METHODS: From Jan, 1995 to Dec. 2000, medical records of 98 patients with endometrial cancer treated in Kosin University Gospel Hospital were reviewed and the overall survival of patients was determined by support of the death statistics of Korea National Statistical Office. Survival rate was analyzed by Kaplan-Meier method and log-rank test was used for curve comparison, Cox proportional hazards model was used for multivariate analysis. RESULTS: The median age of all patients was 53 years. The most common presenting symptom was abnormal vaginal bleeding (65.3%). The most common histological type was endometrioid adenocarcinoma. (85.1%) The overall 5 years survival rate (5YSR) for all 98 patients was 66.8%. The overall 5YSR for premenopause and postmenopause were 80% and 50%, respectively (p=0.08). The overall 5YSR for preop CA-125 level above 35 U/mL, below 35 U/mL were 40%, 80% (p=0.001). The overall 5YSR of stage I, stage II, stage III, stage IV were 86.8%, 76.9%, 39.4%, 14.4% (p=0.001). The overall 5YSR of grade 1, grade 2, grade 3 were 75%, 70%, 45% (p=0.002). The overall 5YSR of myometrium invasion of none, <1/2, >or=1/2, were 84.3%, 80.3%, 57.2% (p=0.004). The overall 5YSR of peritoneal cytology of negative, posivite were 73.4%, 23.8% (p=0.001). The overall 5YSR of lymphnode metastasis negative, positive were 80.1%, 15% (p=0.001). CONCLUSION: The age (>50), preop CA-125 level, FIGO surgical stage, grade, myometrial invasion, lymph node metastasis and peritoneal cytology were significant prognostic factors of uterine endometrial cancer affecting 5YSR by univariate analysis. The myometrium invasion and grade were significant prognostic factors affecting 5YSR by multivariate analysis.
