ABSTRACT
Seventy-nine patients with carcinoma of maxillary antrum treated at the department of therapeutic radiology, Kosin Medical Center, between June 1980 and December 1986 were analyzed retrospectively for survival rate and treatment failure. Forty-three patients were treated with radiotherapy alone and thirty-six patients were treated with combination of surgery and radiotherapy. The overall 5 year survival rate was 32%, patients that were treated with radiotherapy alone had a 5-year survival rate of 23%, and patients who were treated with combination of surgery and radiotherapy had a 5-year survival rate of 42%. 54 patients(68.4%) failed to be cured. Among these 54 patients, 37 patients(68.5%) had only locoregional failure, 16 patients(29.6%) had locoregional failure and distant metastases and 1 patient had only distant metastasis. From above study combination of surgery and radiotherapy might be a better treatment modality for carcinoma of the maxillary antrum.
Key Words: Carcinoma of maxillary antrum, Radiation therapy, 5 year survival rate
