In Canada, approximately 4,400 women are diagnosed with endometrial cancer each year and approximately 800 die from the disease [1]. The majority of patients present with early-stage disease and this is reflected in an overall 5-year survival rate of approximately 85 % [1]. Five-year survival rates range from approximately 96 % for patients with local disease, 66 % for those with regional disease, and 25 % for those with more advanced disease [2]. Factors predictive of recurrence and survival in...
