Pelvic exenteration for recurrent endometrial cancer.

Pelvic exenteration is generally not considered an operation with curative value for women with recurrent endometrial carcinoma. We reviewed our experience with pelvic exenteration performed in patients with recurrent endometrial adenocarcinoma from 1947 through 1994. A total of 44 patients were identified, with a mean age of 60 years (range 35-69 years). Primary therapy usually consisted of total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, with most receiving either pre- or postoperative radiotherapy. Prior to exenteration, 10 of 44 (23%) patients had never received any form of radiotherapy. The median interval between initial surgery and exenteration was 28 months (range 2-189 months). The type of exenteration performed was total in 23 patients (52%), anterior in 20 patients (46%), and posterior in 1 patient. Major postoperative complications occurred in 35 patients (80%) and included urinary/intestinal tract fistulas, pelvic abscess, septicemia, pulmonary embolism, and cerebrovascular accident. Median survival for the entire group of patients was 10.2 months. Nine patients (20%) achieved long-term survival (>5 years). Pelvic exenteration for recurrent endometrial cancer is associated with a high operative morbidity and poor overall survival. Although only 20% of patients achieved long-term survival, this procedure remains the only potentially curative option for the few patients with central recurrence of endometrial cancer who have failed surgical and radiation therapy.
