Description
Advances in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with maxillary sinus carcinoma have improved patient prognosis. This study investigated changes in demographic and clinical characteristics, treatment methods, and outcomes of patients with maxillary sinus carcinomas during three different 10-year periods spanning 60 years at our university hospital. Of the 233 patients with maxillary sinus carcinomas managed at Nagoya University Hospital, 135 were treated between 1951 and 1960 (first period), 35 between 1981 and 1990 (second period), and 63 between 2003 and 2012 (third period). Patient age, sex, TN classifications, treatment methods, and survival rates were compared among patients treated during these time periods. Of the 135, 35, and 63 patients with maxillary sinus carcinomas treated during these time periods, 86 (63.7%), 21 (51.4%), and 48 (76.2%), respectively, were men; 14 (10.4%), six (17.1%), and 14 (22.2%), respectively, were aged ≥70 years; and 135 (100%), 28 (80.0%), and 43 (68.3%), respectively, were treated surgically. The 5-year overall survival rates in patients treated during the first, second, and third periods were 29.7%, 44.3%, and 57.5%, respectively. These findings indicated that advances in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with maxillary sinus carcinoma, including computed tomography and craniofacial resection, have contributed to improvements in patient survival rates.
