444 endometrial carcinomas were retrospectively reviewed. Disease-free survival (DFS) was 83.6% at five years and 80.5% at ten years. 349 T1 cancers were treated by TAH-BSO and post-operative irradiation; 22.6% of them were over-staged. DFS ranged from 100% to 91% in 270 low-risk T1 patients, dropping to 84% in intermediate risk patients and to 44% in high-risk patients. DFS was 93% and 66% in the patients overstaged as pT2 and pT3, respectively; it was 82% for ovarian spread and 45% for pelvic peritoneum/parametrium invasion. T2-T3 patients were treated with preoperative irradiation and bilateral hysterectomy. DFS was 90.5% vs. 72.2% and 2/2 vs. 3/7 when the lesion was understaged. The results of irradiation were similar to literature data, but 53% of patients (all in poor general conditions and/or very old) died from associated diseases. Relapses were observed in 13.6% of cases (62/444 patients); 29 (6%) were local recurrences and 33 (7.6%) were distant metastases, which correlated well with recurrences and 33 (7.6%) were distant metastases, which correlated well with risk factors. Severe complication (G3) were observed in 6.3% of cases.
