BACKGROUND Pelvic lymph nodes are the most common site of extrauterine tumor spread in early-stage endometrial cancer, but the clinical impact of lymphadenectomy has not been addressed in randomized studies. We conducted a randomized clinical trial to determine whether the addition of pelvic systematic lymphadenectomy to standard hysterectomy with bilateral(More)
The management of uterine sarcomas continues to present many difficulties. Primary surgery is the optimal treatment but the role of post-operative radiation remains uncertain. In the mid-1980s, the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer Gynaecological Cancer Group Study proposed a trial to evaluate adjuvant radiotherapy, as previous(More)
BACKGROUND All randomized trials of adjuvant chemotherapy for early-stage ovarian cancer have lacked the statistical power to show a difference in the effect on survival between adjuvant chemotherapy and no adjuvant chemotherapy. They have also not taken into account the adequacy of surgical staging. We performed a prospective unblinded, randomized phase(More)
Two cases of primary retroperitoneal mucinous cystoadenocarcinoma of the ovarian type are reported. Both tumors occurred in females with bilateral normal ovaries and contained benign, borderline, and malignant mucinous epithelium. Full-thickness infiltration of the cyst wall was not found. In addition to surgery, one patient was given chemotherapy because(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE A strong association exists between adenomyosis and endometriosis and a common pathogenetic mechanism was proposed. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether and how the presence of concurrent adenomyosis can affect the outcome of laparoscopic excision of deep endometriosis. DESIGN Data were retrospectively collected from our(More)
AIMS This study aimed to investigate the outcome of patients with malignant ovarian germ cell tumors (MOGCTs) and to define the risk factors for recurrence. METHODS A total of 123 patients with MOGCTs were retrospectively reviewed among MITO centers. Eighty-one patients had primary treatment in a MITO center, whereas the other 42 were referred for(More)
PURPOSE To compare the efficacy of a treatment with cisplatin plus cyclophosphamide given for 5 months and a short treatment with cisplatin alone in advanced ovarian cancer, we conducted a multicenter randomized clinical trial. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eligibility criteria were as follows: first diagnosis of histologically confirmed invasive epithelial(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence and the prognostic factors of objectively diagnosed deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients with epithelial ovarian malignancy. METHODS We reviewed the records of all patients with epithelial ovarian cancer who were diagnosed, treated, and followed-up at our institution between 1990 and 2001.(More)
The staging of gynecologic cancers requires the knowledge of lymph node status and thus pelvic and/or lumbo-aortic lymphadenectomy remains, to date, a widely used procedure. Lymphoceles are a frequent complication of surgical lymph node dissection. They are lymph collections in the retroperitoneum following the continuous drainage of afferent lymph vessels.(More)
OBJECTIVE Atypical endometrial hyperplasia (AEH) has been associated with the presence of concomitant endometrial carcinoma (EC). The aim of this study is to examine the frequency of coexisting endometrial carcinoma when atypical endometrium hyperplasia was found upon biopsy. We also evaluated the influence of preoperative diagnostic techniques (pipelle and(More)
