Abstract

Purpose of the investigation: To analize survival rates for cervical cancer cases seen in our institution. Methods: All cervical cancer cases seen between 1982 and 1996 were included. Survival analysis was performed using the Kaplan-Meier estimator. Results: One hundred forty nine cases were analyzed, with a mean age of 50 years. Overall, 5-year survival was 73%. Disease­free survival ranged from 68% at 12 months to 6% at 5 years. For women under 40 years of age, 5-year survival was 74%, while for those older than 40 years it was 69%. Conclusion: The results seen in our Department are similar to those found in other developed countries.
