|Title:||Recurrence of cervical carcinoma following radical hysterectomy and pelvic node dissection.|
|Citation:||Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand. Vol.76 Suppl 1, (1993), 69-73|
|Abstract:||The aim of this report is to review the clinical pattern of the recurrent cases. From May 1969 to December 1988, 200 patients with cervical carcinoma stage IB were treated with radical hysterectomy and pelvic node dissection at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University. One hundred and eighty-two patients were included in this study. Twenty-one patients (11.5%) developed recurrent cervical carcinoma. Most of the recurrence were diagnosed within 3 years after surgery. The most common recurrent site was pelvic sidewall. Patients' complaint and abnormal physical findings accounted for 81 percent of the first evidence. Treatment of recurrences was radiation in 15, chemotherapy in 3 and symptomatic treatment in the remaining three. Nine patients died of the recurrent tumor. The median time from recurrence to death was 24 months (range 12-65). The majority of the deaths occurred in the first three years after detection of recurrence. Radiation may be beneficial in treatment of recurrent tumor and in regional control of tumor after surgery.|
