BACKGROUND To investigate the relationship between preoperative serum CA 125 levels and para-aortic lymph node (PAN) metastasis as determined by systematic pelvic and para-aortic lymph node dissection in endometrial carcinoma. METHODS This study included 180 patients (n = 55, premenopausal; n = 125, postmenopausal) with endometrial carcinoma treated by complete surgical staging. Cut-off values of preoperative serum CA 125 levels for PAN metastasis were determined by receiver characteristic… CONTINUE READING
