Abstract

Background The purpose of this retrospective analysis was to evaluate ocular function and survival rates among treatment modalities in patients with maxillary sinus cancer with orbital invasion. Methods Eighty-seven patients were classified according to the main treatment modality. Ocular function preservation rates and survival rates were evaluated for each therapeutic modality. Results The 5-year overall survival rate for the en bloc resection, conservative surgery, superselective intra-arterial chemotherapy, and radiotherapy (RADPLAT), intravenous chemoradiotherapy (IV-CRT) was 70%, 35%, 49%, and 31%, respectively. The ocular function preservation rate for each group was 15%, 27%, 30%, and 17%, respectively. In the en bloc resection group, there was no significant difference in the 5-year overall survival rate between patients with orbital exenteration and those without orbital exenteration (72% vs 71%; p = .9321). Conclusion The en bloc resection group showed a favorable survival rate but a low preservation rate. Preservation of orbital contents did not reduce the survival rate.
