Objective: To determine risk factors of survival outcomes in patients with cervical cancer of Stage IB treated with standard hysterectomy (RH). Materials Methods: From February 2001 to November 2015, patients with cervical cancer of FIGO Stage IB were included, if they received RH of Class III or Type C1. Epidemiological and clinic-pathologic characteristics were compared to determine risk factors of overall survival (OS) and progression free survival (PFS). Results: Among 406 patients included, 371 (91.4%) had definite survival data, with recurrence rate and mortality of 17.2% and 9.4%. After a median follow-up of 48.5 (range 12-189) months, and ten-year PFS were 80% and 73%, and five- and ten-year OS were 88% and 84%, respectively. In multivariate analysis, patients with Stage IB2 (HR 2.0, 95% CI 1.2-3.2), positive vaginal margin (HR 9.2, 95% CI 2.6-33.0), or lymphatic metastasis (HR 2.0, 95% CI 1.1-3.6) had higher recurrence; patients with RH before year of 2011 (HR 2.8, 95% 1.3-6.0), Stage IB2 (HR 3.6, 95% CI 1.9-6.9) or lymphatic metastasis (HR 3.6, 95% CI 1.8-7.1) had higher mortality. Recurrent sites or post-recurrent treatment plans had no impact on the survival after recurrence. Conclusion: The prognosis of cervical cancer patients treated with RH by experienced physicians is favorable. Pathologic characters and experiences of surgeons are predictive factors of survival outcomes.
