Abstract

The authors have reviewed their experience on treatment of carcinoma of the uterine cervix at stage I and II, with a special regard for prognostic factors. The best survival results at 7 years for patients at stage I B and II A were obtained with integrated treatments, while for stage II B patient no treatment proved to be really effective. Lymphnodal infiltration, increasing with the stage, was the most important prognostic factor, but stage must always be taken into account, especially in N- patients. Some considerations are then made on the importance of prognostic factors such as lymphnode status and tumour volume, in order to improve the survival results.
