Objective: In this study we evaluated the results of treatment and prognostic factors in endometrium carcinoma.
Material and Methods: 107 endometrum carcinoma patients, who were followed up for more than 6 months in our clinic have been evaluated.
58 of these patients were stuied in accordance with stages, histological subtype and treatment they received. Also their survivals were taken under our study.
Results: Avarage age of the partients were calculate 58.3 (27-80) with following details; 1.7% of patients in 21-30, 3.4% of patients in 31-40, 18.9% of patients in 41-50, 29.3% of patients in 51-60, 46.5% of patients in 61+ age groups. Acording to their histopathological status; adeno Ca: 42 patients, papiller seroz adeno; Ca 3 patients, aclenosquamous Ca 9 patients, mixt Ca; 6 patients, leiomyosarcoma; 2 patients. Avarage Survival period were found to be 44.7 months, 5 year-survival was 36% and 33 patients are still ob- sereved to be disease free of carcinoma.
Conclusion: Grade is rather important in Endomerium Car¬cinoma.. Stage and Grade are 2 both determining prognostic factors in this carcinoma.
The incerase in Grade cause increase in local niiks and reduces survival.
