Quality Of Life And Adverse Events After Radiotherapy In Gynecologic Cancer Survivors: A Cohort Study
Archives Of Gynecology And Obstetrics. , v. 284, n. 6, p. 1523 - 1531, 2011.
Purpose: To evaluate quality of life (QOL) in gynecologic cancer survivors after radiotherapy (RT), investigate the frequency of adverse events and demonstrate an association between these symptoms and QOL. Methods: A prospective cohort study of 95 women aged 21-75 years undergoing RT for gynecologic cancer was carried out. QOL was assessed by the WHOQOL-BREF before, at 4 months, 1 year and 3 years after RT and adverse events were evaluated following RT by the (CTCAE) v 3.0 scale. QOL scores were assessed by the Wilcoxon signed rank test over time. Multiple linear regression analysis was used to identify predictors of QOL. Results: The most frequent adverse events were pain (64.2%) and dyspareunia (45.9%). A significant increase in QOL scores was observed in the psychological domain, general health and overall QOL. Pain was negatively associated with the physical, psychological and social relationship domains (p < 0.01); dyspareunia with the physical and social relationship (p < 0.01); decreased sexual interest with the psychological (p < 0.01). Higher family income was positively associated with the psychological domain and general health (p < 0.01). Conclusions: Results suggested that QOL improved after RT in women with gynecologic cancer. Adverse events, such as pain, dyspareunia and decreased sexual interest had a negative impact on QOL. © Springer-Verlag 2011.284615231531Leake, R.L., Gurrin, L.C., Hammond, I.G., Quality of life in
