Prognostic value of the seventh AJCC/UICC TNM classification of intestinal-type ethmoid adenocarcinoma: Systematic review and risk prediction model

Abstract

Background

The purpose of this study was to propose a prognostic classification of intestinal-type adenocarcinoma (ITAC) based on literature search and prognostic modeling of cohort data.

Methods

We first conducted a literature search to assess the homogeneity of the reported estimates of 5-year survival and to identify the influence of T classification. We then pooled prospective data from 3 large French and Italian series to predict time to all-cause mortality. The sample was randomly split to derive and then to validate the proposed prognostic model.

Results

Literature analysis confirmed the heterogeneity in 5-year survival rates, partly explained in subsets of homogeneous T-values. The sample included 223 patients, randomly separated into a derivation (n = 141) and a validation set (n = 82). Invasion of the sphenoid lateral and/or posterior walls and dura/cerebral invasion were systematically associated with a poor survival.

Conclusion

The incorporation of the invasion of the sphenoid lateral or posterior walls should be considered for ITAC management and prognostication. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Head Neck, 2017
