Endometrial cancer is the most common invasive gynecologic malignancy in developed countries. The best survival rates are expected after surgical removal, thus the aim of a complex treatment is to achieve resecability in locally and locoregionally advanced disease. The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate if the neoadjuvant systemic treatment leads to better overall survival compared to irradiation solely. From January 2015 to December 2018, we enrolled 28 patients diagnosed with irresecable, locally and locoregionally advanced high-risk endometrial carcinoma. Patients were treated by neoadjuvant paclitaxel-carboplatin, then radical hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy and lymphadenectomy were performed. After administration of 6 cycles of carboplatin-paclitaxel, the control MR test showed tumor shrinkage in all patients. Complete resection was achieved in the case of every patient. Tumor residuum in lymph nodes was verified in 4 cases by pathological evaluation. The 2-year survival and the 2-year progression-free survival rates were 65,1% and 66,1%, respectively. The median overall survival was 16,5 months. Neoadjuvant treatment can be an effective approach in providing the conditions for complete tumor resection, which may result in survival advantage. Despite multimodal treatment, prognosis is poor. Orv Hetil. 2020; 161(11): 425-433.
