Abstract: In a retrospective review between 1994 and 2004, 503 consecutive patients with endometrial carcinoma were managed surgically at two hospitals in Rostock. In Comparison to literature the present analysis has got a higher rate of FIGO stage I. The most important prognostic features in endometrial cancer are the surgical FIGO stage, myometrial invasion, histological type, and differentiation grade; most are independent of each other. Our data support the hypothesis that a vaginal cuff during hysterectomy for FIGO stage I lead to a lower rate of relapse and death.
