Purpose of investigation: The objective of this retrospective study was to investigate prognostic variables and impact of adjuvant therapy in uterine carcinosarcoma. Methods: The clinical information and pathological confirmation were reviewed for cases with uterine carcinosarcoma from 1984 to 2005. A total of 45 patients were eligible for analysis. Results: The median follow-up for survivors was 84 months. Five-year overall survival and progression-free survival (PFS) rates were 36.5% and 33.8%, respectively for Stage I-IV. Distant site metastasis with/ without pelvic failure occurred in 83.3% of those with recurrence/ progression. By multivariate analysis, older age (p = 0.001) and more than half of myometrial invasion (p = 0.002) were significant predictors of death, while only myometrial invasion (p = 0.022) was significantly associated with PFS. Stratified analyses demonstrated a monotonic trend of chemotherapy or chemoradiation to decrease death. Conclusions: Our results suggested that age and depth of myometrial invasion were significant prognostic factors, and chemotherapy or chemoradiation seemed to be beneficial for uterine carcinosarcoma.
