abstract

  • Based on this study, in patients with Stage IB endometrial carcinoma, the amount of myometrial invasion, defined as invasion less than or equal to one-third of the myometrium versus invasion greater than one-third and less than one-half of the myometrium, did not appear to influence outcome. Age > or = 60 years and FIGO Grade 3, however, emerged as independent prognostic factors for poor DFS and OS.
