Abstract :

Aims: To evaluate the clinicopathological features and relationship of tumor grade, myometrial invasion and lymph node metastasis. Settings and Design: Retrospective analysis. Materials and Methods: The medical records of patients with endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the endometrium treated between January 2013 and January 2016 were reviewed retrospectively. Statistical Analysis Used: The continuous variables were reported using mean +/- SD and the categorical variables were reported using number and percentages. The pre and post operative grades were compared using Wilcoxon Sign Rank Test. All the analyses were done using SPSS version 18.0. Results: A total number of 40 patients were included in the analysis. The mean age was 58.65 years (range- 39 to71). While 29 (72.5%) were post menopausal, 28 (70%) patients presented with PMB. metastases was detected in 12.5% patients. Conclusions: Complete surgical staging is the precise way of determining stage and requirement of adjuvant treatment as it defines prognosis and survival. Studies including large number of patients with complete surgical staging done is required to define the surgical management of patients with endometrial carcinoma.
