    Abstract:

    One hundred and two patients were treated for primary adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix over a ten-year period from 1973 to 1982. Of these, 51 patients underwent initial surgical management that included a pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy with a radical hysterectomy or a surgical staging operation. Clinical lesion size, grade, and depth of stromal invasion were correlated with lymph node metastasis and survival. The incidence of positive lymph nodes was 14.6% for stage I and 40.0% for stage II. Positive lymph nodes were documented in none of 15 patients with lesions smaller than 2 cm, 16.7% (five of 30) with 2 to 4 cm, and 82.3% (five of six) with larger than 4 cm; 5.3% of grade 1 tumors, 11.1% of grade 2, and 50.0% of grade 3. There were no lymph node metastases (zero of six) in patients with a tumor that had a depth invasion of less than 2 mm, whereas positive nodes were found in 11.1% (two of 18) patients with 2 to 5 mm of invasion, 28.6% (two of seven) with 5 to 10 mm, and 57.1% (four of seven) with greater than 10 mm of invasion. Five-year survival was 82.9% for stage I and 42.9% for stage II patients; 91.7% with negative lymph nodes, and 10% with positive nodes (P less than .0001). The size of the primary tumor (P less than .0001), tumor grade (P less than .05), and depth of invasion (P less than .05) correlated with patient survival.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
