The objective of this retrospective multicenter study was to assess the rates, times, and sites of recurrences of 126 patients with uterine leiomyosarcomas. Surgery was the initial therapy for all patients. Median follow-up of survivors was 50 months (range, 3-168 months). Of the 90 patients with stage I-II disease, 26 received postoperative irradiation(More)
PURPOSE Neoadjuvant chemotherapy may represent an alternative to irradiation in locally advanced squamous cell cervical cancer. Aims of this study were to compare a three-drug (paclitaxel, ifosfamide, and cisplatin [TIP]) with a two-drug (ifosfamide and cisplatin [IP]) regimen and to assess the prognostic value of pathologic response on survival.

The objective of this retrospective multicenter study was to assess the rates, times, and sites of recurrences of 26 patients with low-grade endometrial stromal sarcomas (ESS) (<10 mitoses per 10 high-power fields (HPF) and 40 patients with high-grade ESS (>10 mitoses/10 HPF). Surgery was the initial therapy for all patients. Postoperative treatment was(More)
This is a retrospective study of patients treated for early-stage cervical cancer to identify pathologic risk factors associated with ovarian metastases and, therefore, to establish when ovarian preservation can be performed without increasing the risk of relapse in order to improve the quality of life in premenopausal patients. Between 1982 and 2004, 1965(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this retrospective multicenter study was to assess the pattern of failures and survival of patients with primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube. METHODS The hospital records of 88 patients with primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube were reviewed. Surgery was the initial therapy for all patients. Tumor stage was I in 21(More)
OBJECTIVE A rising number of patients affected by ovarian masses suspected of borderline ovarian tumor are operated on primary laparoscopic procedure. METHODS From January 1992 to June 2004, 113 patients affected by low malignant ovarian tumor were followed at the Gynecologic Departments of five Italian Institutions. Fifty-two (46.0%) patients were(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this work was to analyze the diagnostic and prognostic value of serum human epididymis protein 4 (HE4) and Risk for Ovarian Malignancy Algorithm (ROMA) in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). METHODS Preoperative serum samples of 419 women (140 healthy controls, 131 ovarian benign cysts, 34 endometriosis, and 114 EOC) were tested for(More)
BACKGROUND Invasive vulvar carcinoma is a rare disease with an incidence rate of 3-5% of all female genital neoplasms. The current study discusses the limited number of articles in the literature regarding the patterns of recurrence as well as the clinical outcome of patients with recurrent disease based on a consistent and consecutive series of cases.

The purpose of this paper is to retrospectively analyze the clinical and pathological data of 118 cases of uterine carcinosarcoma. Prognostic factors and management were evaluated. chi 2 and log-rank tests were performed. Surgical stage at time of surgery was the most important prognostic factor (P < 0.0001); in stage I-II disease depth of myometrial(More)
Cervical cancer is still one of the most common malignancies in women. Treatment of cervical cancer is very successful, especially in the early stage. However, some patients will experience recurrence. The primary purpose of follow-up programs is early detection of recurrence disease that should be more likely to be amenable to treatment, thereby improving(More)
