NAKAGAWA, Janete Tomiyoshi; ESPINOSA, Mariano Martínez; BARBIERI, Márcia  and  SCHIRMER, Janine. Cervical carcinoma: survival rate and prognostic factors in women in the state of Mato Grosso. Acta paul. enferm. [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.5, pp.631-637. ISSN 0103-2100.

OBJECTIVES: To analyze the survival rate of women undergoing treatment for cervical cancer in the state of Mato Grosso and identify the prognostic factors that most influenced the survival time. METHODS: A cohort study, conducted by analysis of medical records, among others. The population included 55 women who experienced this type of carcinoma and had clinical follow-up between 2002 and 2007. RESULTS: The overall survival rate was 66.7%. The prognostic factors that influenced survival rate were: age, presence of symptoms suggestive of cervical cancer, and late stage of disease at diagnosis. CONCLUSION: Although the overall survival rate was similar to the rates of developed countries, it was lower in women with unfavorable social conditions.
