We analyzed 119 patients with cervical carcinoma treated by postoperative radiotherapy from 1983 to 1993. Five- and 10-year survival rates of all patients were 77% and 67%, respectively. The 10-year survival rates for stage I (54 patients) and stage II (65 patients) were 76% and 58%, respectively. Ten-year survival rate for patients with both deep stromal invasion and lymph node metastasis was 37%, which was much lower than in those without them (more than 90 %), indicating that they seemed to be factors related to poor prognosis. The results of multivariate analysis showed that the number of metastatic lymph nodes was the most important prognostic factor. Leg edema and intestinal and urinary insufficiency as late complications of postoperative radiotherapy occurred at low incidences and were well tolerated.
