BACKGROUND Recent studies have shown that poor survival for patients with early endometrial cancer was related to the extrapelvic spread of the cancer. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the correlation between para-aortic lymph node (PAN) metastasis and histopathologic findings and to assess the clinical utility of identifying PAN metastasis of(More)
A carcinoid tumor of the cervix in a 40-year-old woman was studied by cytology, histology, electron microscopy, immunohistochemistry and hormonal analysis. The preoperative cytologic and histologic findings strongly suggested a carcinoid tumor of the cervix. The serum serotonin level was elevated; immunohistochemical studies demonstrated the presence of(More)
Paraaortic lymph node dissection was performed in the treatment of patients with carcinoma of the cervix who were subjected to radical hysterectomy between June, 1982 and March, 1988 at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Hokkaido University Hospital, Sapporo, Japan. Thirteen out of 246 (5.3%) patients had metastases in the paraaortic lymph node.(More)
Prognostic risk factors in histopathologic findings were analyzed in the data for one hundred and thirteen patients with uterine endometrial carcinoma who were treated surgically. Univariate survival analysis with Kaplan-Meier methods revealed that the nuclear grade (p less than 0.005), lymph-vascular space invasion (p less than 0.005), histologic grade (p(More)
Histopathologic factors were investigated in the data for ninety-one patients with endometrial carcinoma who were treated surgically. Each of these subjects was reclassified according to the new FIGO surgical criteria (1989) for stages and the relationship between the new classifications and the prognosis of patients was analyzed. One third of the patients(More)
Prognostic risk factors were statistically analyzed from the histopathologic data obtained from 90 Japanese women with stages I and II endometrial carcinoma treated surgically, including systemic retroperitoneal lymph node dissection, between June 1979 and June 1989. In stage Ia endometrial carcinoma, pelvic and paraaortic nodes metastasis were seen in(More)
We performed a systematic retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) on 137 patients with primary ovarian carcinoma, of whom 97 had undergone RPLND during the primary surgery before chemotherapy and 40 had undergone RPLND during the secondary cytoreductive surgery after preoperative chemotherapy. The tentative staging of the ovarian carcinoma used in(More)
