To determine predictive factors for positive peritoneal cytology (PPC) and the incidence rate of PPC in endometrial
cancer (EC) patients.
Material and Methods:
Since 2006 until 06.2012 154 (stage I-IV) patients with EC were operated on in Gynecological clinic, St.
Anna?-Varna: 125- EC type I (81.2%) and 29-EC type II (18,8%). All were submitted to intraoperative staging and were evaluable
PPC was detected in 19 out of 154 women (12.34%) : 8 out of 29 patients with EC type II -27.6% and 11 out of 125 with
EC type I-8,8% (p<0.0005).
Lymph node dissection (LND) was performed in 16 out of 19 women with PPC. Lymph node metastases (LNM) were established
in 4 of these patients (25%) whereas in 3 women LNM were more than 3(multiple).
PPC in EC patients is associated with lymphatic spread and non-endometroid (type II) histology
