Abstract

SEPULVEDA V, Pablo et al. CÁNCER DE CUELLO UTERINO: SOBREVIDA A 3 y 5 AÑOS EN HOSPITAL SAN JOSÉ. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2008, vol.73, n.3, pp.151-154. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262008000300003.

Background: Cervical cancer is the fifth cause of death by cancer in Chilean women. Objectives: To compare between August 1999 and December 2002 the survival of cervical cancer according to a clinical stage in 3 and 5 years diagnosed in the Cervical Pathology Unit of San José Hospital. Methods: The overall survival rate was calculated with the totality of diagnosed cervical cancer, his stage and mortality in 3 and 5 years was obtained through the National Registry Office. Results: The distribution for stage was: 22.2% for stage I, 21.3% for stage II, 53.7% for stage III and 2.7% for stage IV. In stage I the survival at 3 years was 83% (Cl: 61.5 - 93.4), and at 5 years 78% (Cl: 55.5 - 90.5). In stage II the survival at 3 years was 65% (Cl: 42.4 - 80.8) and at 5 years 60% (Cl: 38.3 - 77.4). In stage III the survival at 3 years was 33% (Cl: 21.6 - 45.5) and at 5 years 29% (Cl: 18.6 - 41.9). In stage IV the mortality at 3 and 5 years was 100% produced during the first 3 months from the diagnosis. Conclusions: The survival is directly correlative with the clinical stage in the moment of the diagnosis, independent of the age of the patients, by which it must increase the screening coverage, improving the times of diagnostic confirmation and optimum treatment, and also improving the network systems and registries.
