We aimed to analyse prognostic factors and treatment results of patients with uterine sarcoma. Between 1999–2007, twenty women treated with postoperative radiotherapy were evaluated retrospectively. Mean age was 47 years (29- 73). Median follow-up was 34 months (12-84). All patients were treated with postoperative radiotherapy. Histopathologic examination showed: leiomyosarcoma in 11 patients, endometrial stromal sarcoma in 7 and carcinosarcoma in 2. Stage IB, IC, IIIA, IIIB and IIIC tumors were identified in 4, 10, 3, 1 and 2 patients, respectively. At the time of analysis, 4 patients were dead due to progressive disease; 1 patient was alive with disease and 15 were alive without disease, with a median survival of 75 months. Age, menapousal status, stage, histology, grade, lymph node and lymphovascular involvement, chemotherapy were not found to be statistically significant prognostic factor for disease control and overall survival in univariate and multivariate analysis. This study demostrated that adjuvant radiotherapy was effective and tolerable treatment to improve locoregional control.
