Abstract

The purpose of this study was determine the effect of neoadjuvant intraarterial chemotherapy (NAIC) on the prognosis of patients with locally advanced cervical cancer. From January 1992 to December 1997, 26 previously untreated patients with stage IB2-IIIB cervical cancer were enrolled in the study. NAIC was administered for more than two courses every 3 weeks using a combination of 17.5 mg/m(2) bleomycin, 7 mg/m(2) mitomycin-C, and 75 mg/m(2) cisplatin via the bilateral internal iliac artery. Pathologic findings were evaluated with histologic examinations of surgical specimens. A nonrandomized control group of 120 patients who underwent conventional treatment between 1980 and 1991 was used for comparison. Nineteen (73.1%) of the 26 patients responded to initial chemotherapy, permitting a radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy in 14 patients. The remaining 5 patients received radiotherapy. One of 7 nonresponders was able to undergo radical surgery. Pathologic complete responses were found in 4 of the 15 patients who underwent radical surgery. The incidence of lymph node metastasis, parametrial infiltration, and vascular space involvement in the 15 patients who received NAIC followed by radical surgery was significantl...Continue Reading
