SANABRIA NEGRIN, José Guillermo et al. Follow-up assessment of women suffering from cervical uterine cancer in two polyclinics, Pinar del Rio. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.3, pp.139-160. ISSN 1561-3194.

Introduction: Despite of having a program, for a long time, to the early detection of cervical uterine cancer, the results expected are not as far achieved. Objective: to characterize the patients suffering from invasive cervical uterine cancer in two health areas in Pinar del Rio province throughout five years (2003-2007). Material and Methods: observational, cross-sectional, cohort, retrospective study including women at every age with invasive cervical-uterine cancer. The information concerning the patients was collected from the automated records of cervical uterine at the provincial office for cervix pathology treatment (Provincial Public Health Direction), general death rate (Provincial Public Health Direction) and from the clinical histories of the Provincial Cancer Unit. Among the variables studied were: coming or not from the program, age, clinical stage, treatment followed, and annual incidence, together with the average of mortality and lethality considering the clinical stages. Results: 70,6% of the cases were not detected by the program. The average incidence rate was 29.5 per 10 0000 women from 15 years old or older. All patients underwent to a specific cancer treatment according to the clinical stage. The greatest mortality rates were found in patients presenting IIIB stage at diagnosis. Conclusion:  errors were observed in Primary Health Care leading to deficiencies in the early detection of this type cancer. The incidence rates of this disease have not diminished; cases suffering from advanced stages of the disease are still detected, shortening the survival rate of these patients.
