Background and Objectives: We aimed to evaluate Progression Free Survival (PFS), Overall Survival (OS), and relapse rate in women affected by endometrioid ovarian cancer and synchronous endometrial-ovarian endometrioid cancer (SEO-EC). As secondary outcome, we assessed whether systematic pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy could be considered a determinant of relapse rate in this population. Materials and Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of women with diagnosis of endometrioid ovarian cancer or SEO-EC between January 2010 to September 2020, and calculated PFS, OS and relapse rate. Results: In almost all the patients (97.6%) who underwent systematic pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy, there were no lymph node metastases confirmed by histology. We did not find a significant difference (p = 0.6570) for the rate of relapse in the group of women who underwent systematic pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy (4/42; 9.5%) compared with the group of women who did not undergo the same procedure (1/21; 4.8%). During a median follow-up was 23 months, both PFS and OS were excellent. Conclusions: Women affected by early-stage low-grade endometrioid cancer and SEO-EC without apparent lymph node involvement at pre-operative imaging showed a very low rate of lymph node metastasis and similar relapse rate with or without lymphadenectomy.

Abstract

Background and Objectives: We aimed to evaluate Progression Free Survival (PFS), Overall Survival (OS), and relapse rate in women affected by endometrioid ovarian cancer and synchronous endometrial-ovarian endometrioid cancer (SEO-EC). As secondary outcome, we assessed whether systematic pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy could be considered a determinant of relapse rate in this population. Materials and Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of women with diagnosis of endometrioid ovarian cancer or SEO-EC between January 2010 to September 2020, and calculated PFS, OS and relapse rate. Results: In almost all the patients (97.6%) who underwent systematic pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy, there were no lymph node metastases confirmed by histology. We did not find a significant difference (p = 0.6570) for the rate of relapse in the group of women who underwent systematic pelvic and para-aortic lymphadenectomy (4/42; 9.5%) compared with the group of women who did not undergo the same procedure (1/21; 4.8%). During a median follow-up was 23 months, both PFS and OS were excellent. Conclusions: Women affected by early-stage low-grade endometrioid cancer and SEO-EC without apparent lymph node involvement at pre-operative imaging showed a very low rate of lymph node metastasis and similar relapse rate with or without lymphadenectomy.
