OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate prognostic factors and impact of adjuvant therapy for uterine leiomyosarcoma (LMS). METHODS All cases with uterine LMS were retrieved from medical registry (1984 through 2003) of Chang Gung Memorial Hospital. After excluding cases with initial surgery at outside the hospital, missing chart, and wrong(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy in the management of small cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix (SCCC) through a retrospective study of Taiwanese Gynecologic Oncology Group. METHODS We reviewed the medical records and histological files of 144 patients with FIGO stages IA-IIB SCCC treated in 11 main hospitals(More)
OBJECTIVE To define the role of pretreatment surgical staging for locally advanced cervical carcinoma. METHODS A two-step randomized trial was conducted to compare clinical staging (arm A) versus surgical staging (arm B) and to compare the laparoscopic (LAP) with the extraperitoneal (EXP) approach in previously untreated locally advanced cervical(More)
PURPOSE The role of positron emission tomography (PET) with [18F]-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) in early-stage cervical cancer is unclear. We aimed to investigate the clinical benefit of FDG-PET in primary staging before radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy (RH-PLND). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with untreated stage IA2 to IIA adenocarcinoma(More)
PURPOSE Our aim was to evaluate the prognostic significance of human papillomavirus (HPV) genotype in early-stage cervical carcinoma primarily treated with surgery in a large tertiary referral medical center. PATIENTS AND METHODS Consecutive patients who underwent primary surgery for invasive cervical carcinoma of International Federation of Gynecology(More)
Little is known about acquisition of human papillomavirus (HPV) and its outcome among older women with negative HPV testing and normal cytology. A longitudinal 3-yr follow-up of nested-cohort subjects (n = 8825) from a population-based cervical cancer screening study whose Pap and HPV tests were negative at baseline were conducted. Every active HPV-negative(More)
OBJECTIVE Research suggests that the resectoscopic management of abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) following cesarean section (CS) is safe and effective. There is, however, a lack of complementary data from routine clinical practice. We aimed to evaluate the efficacy of resectoscopic remodeling of the CS scar in the management of post CS AUB (pCSAUB).

We compared the efficacy of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA detection between a PCR-based genechip (Easychip HPV Blot [hereafter referred to as HPV Blot]; King Car, Taiwan) method and Hybrid Capture II (HCII; Digene, Gaithersburg, MD) in women with previous normal (n = 146) or abnormal (> or =atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance [ASCUS] [n =(More)
PURPOSE To study the prognostic value of the human papillomavirus (HPV) genotypes in cervical cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 1,010 patients with cervical cancer after radiotherapy between 1993 and 2000 were eligible for this study. The HPV genotypes were determined by a genechip, which detects 38 types of HPV. The(More)
BACKGROUND Hormone therapy alone for early-stage, low-grade endometrial carcinoma arising in young women has been reported occasionally in case reports or small series. However, a comprehensive guideline for selection, treatment, and follow-up is not available as yet. METHODS In the current study, the authors' evaluated the outcome of a cohort of young(More)
