Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: Although tumor grade has no impact on endometrial cancer stage, it carries prognostic and therapeutic importance. Surgical management and adjuvant treatment following surgery in certain patients depends on a number of factors including tumor grade. Although grade 3 tumors are included in the high-intermediate risk group, there are data demonstrating that there is a slight difference in survival between patients with grade 1 and 2 tumors in early-stage disease. In this study, we aimed to investigate the association of grade with clinicopathological characteristics, recurrence-free and disease-specific survival in patients treated at our clinic and diagnosed with endometrioid endometrial cancer.
Material and Methods: 279 patients with early FIGO Stage endometrioid endometrial cancer treated between 2009-2018 in a University hospital were included in the study. The associations between tumor grade with stage, lymphovascular space invasion (LVSI), myometrial invasion, tumor size, and survival were analyzed.
Results: LVSI, ≥50% myometrial invasion, advanced stage and > 2 cm tumor size were significantly higher in grade 3 tumors compared to patients with grade 1 tumors. Recurrence-free and disease-specific survival were significantly lower in patients with grade 2 and 3 tumors compared to patients with grade 1 tumors. In multivariate analysis of RFS and DSS, tumor grade, LVSI and stage were independent prognostic factors.
Conclusion: According to this study, grade 2 tumors may not differ significantly from grade 3 tumors in terms of survival. Therefore, due to the potential adverse prognosis associated with grade 2 and 3 tumors, vigilance for recurrence is warranted.

Keywords: Endometrioid endometrial adenocarcinoma; grade; survival; prognosis.
