Abstract OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the impact of body mass index (BMI) on the short- and long-term outcomes of patients with endometrial cancer who underwent robotic-assisted staging and to analyze disease recurrence and recurrence-free survival (RFS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: The charts of all consecutive patients with endometrial cancer who underwent robotic surgery from March 2007 to October 2012 were analyzed. Patients with follow-up less than 12 months after surgery were censored from the RFS analysis. RESULTS: Mean (SD) age for the 364 patients was 63.6 (10) years, and mean (SD) BMI was 34.8 (10.1) kg/m. Conversions were in 3 (0.8\%) of 364 cases. The mean (SD) operative time was 162.3 (54.6) minutes. Mean (SD) postoperative hospitalization was 1.6 (1.9) days. Histology included 80.5\% endometrioid and 19.5\% clear cell, serous, and carcinosarcomas. Mean (SD) pelvic and paraaortic lymph node counts were 15.9 (8.2) and 3.6 (4.3), respectively. Metastatic disease was diagnosed in 58 (16\%) of 364 patients. The median follow-up was 29.3 months. The recurrence rates were 4.1\% for the patients with endometrioid carcinoma and 14.1\% for nonendometrioid histologies. Recurrences in patients with BMI less than 30 kg/m accounted for 68.2\% of all recurrences (15/22 patients). The rest of recurrences (7/22 patients, 31.8\%) were in obese patients. Moreover, when analyzed for each histologic subtype, recurrence rates were consistently higher for patients with BMI less than 30 kg/m when compared with patients with BMI greater than 30 kg/m. The 3-year overall survival was 98.2\%, and the 3-year RFS was 92\%. CONCLUSIONS: Obesity and morbid obesity did not affect adversely the operative outcomes for patients with endometrial cancer who were operated on using the robotic system. The recurrence rates were lower for patients with BMI greater than 30 kg/m compared with patients with BMI less than 30 kg/m for both endometrioid and nonendometrioid cancers.
