Thirty-two years experience in management of primary tumours of the vagina.

Abstract

A retrospective study is presented of 99 patients with a diagnosis of primary tumour of the vagina who were managed at the Gynaecological Oncology Department, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, between the years 1947 and 1979. The lesions have been staged according to the FIGO system. The corrected five year survival rates for patients given definitive treatment were: stage I, 71% (10 of 14), stage II, 29% (10 of 34), stage III, 25% (2 of 8), stage IV, 22% (2 of 9). The overall corrected five year survival rate when definitive treatment was given was 37% (24 of 65).
