Abstract:
This study aims to review the survival and morbidity in patients treated for endometrial cancer, at a single centre and analyses the effects of co-morbidity on these outcomes. Case notes of all patients referred to the Christie Hospital with endometrial carcinoma from January 1, 1993 to December 31, 1995 (n=499) were reviewed. Twenty patients presented with recurrence and were not included in this analysis. Three hundred and seventy-five patients had previously undergone a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingoophorectomy (+/- pelvic lymphadenectomy). Of these, 175 received adjuvant external beam radiotherapy (XRT) only, 49 received XRT and brachytherapy, 30 received brachytherapy alone and 121 patients had no further therapy. One hundred and four patients were referred for primary treatment. Radical radiotherapy was administered to 63 patients who were unfit for surgery, with 10 of these receiving XRT + brachytherapy and 53 receiving brachytherapy alone. Thirteen patients received palliative XRT and 28 supportive care only. The overall 5-year survival for those treated radically was 73.3%. There was no significant survival difference between patients who underwent surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy, in whatever form (p=0.115). Patients who did not undergo surgery did less well as a group, although there was no significant survival difference between those treated with combination therapy or brachytherapy alone (p=0.33). Survival was significantly associated with FIGO stage, tumour grade, age (especially those >75 years) and co-morbidity (ACE-27 score). Late morbidity occurred in 46 patients, with severe toxicity affecting 12 (3.8%). Toxicity was associated with ACE-27 score (p=0.0019), treatment dose and modality, with 50% (n=6) of severe toxicity seen in patients receiving adjuvant XRT + ICT. These data demonstrate that survival in patients with endometrial carcinoma treated radically remains good, with the stage and grade of tumour being significant factors for overall survival. The incidence of severe morbidity related to radiotherapy of any modality was 3.8%. A high co-morbidity (ACE-27) score was significantly associated with poorer survival (p<0.0055) and increased late treatment morbidity (p=0.0019).
