Cervix: Oral Abstract: Audit on early stage carcinoma cervix primarily treated with radical surgery: A tertiary cancer care centre experience
This article was originally published by Wolters Kluwer - Medknow and was migrated to Scientific Scholar after the change of Publisher.
Clinical staging is universally accepted for ca cervix. In early stage of carcinoma cervix both radiation and radical hysterectomy given equivalent local control rates as well as survival. Poor prognostic factors following surgery would necessitate-post-operative adjuvant radiation. Selecting the patients who is unlikely to require adjuvant treatment after surgery spares them the toxicity of multiple treatment modalities, which is worse than alone.
To find out clinico-pathological correlation in early stage carcinoma cervix treated with the surgery.
Materials and Methods:
It is a retrospective audit of study. All carcinoma cervix cases primarily treated with surgery.
A total of 25 cases were treated in this study. The median age of patients observed with 48 years. The common symptoms and stage were vaginal discharge (i.e., 42.30%) and 1B1 (61.53%). Most of patients were treated with type III radical hysterectomy and their clinical staging was correlated with the final histo-pathological staging. A total of 11 (i.e., 42.30%) required adjuvant treatment among them 7 (63.633%), 1 (9.09%) and 3 (27.27%) patients were in 1B1 1B2 and 2A respectively. The chi-square test has been performed to compute the correlation between clinical and histo-pathological finding. It shows that significant amount of relation present between clinical and histo-pathological findings.
