摘要：Background: Previous studies on the association between statin use and survival outcomes in gynecologic cancers have presented conflicting results. No independent studies to elucidate the association between statin use and survival outcomes of endometrial cancer (EC) have been conducted.; Methods: To gather updated evidence, we carried out an extensive literature search on Medline (PubMed and OvidSP), Embase, Cochrane Library, China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), wanfang data, and Vip network to identify all potential studies on the effect of statins on the prognosis of endometrial carcinoma. The design and quality of all studies were evaluated, and a fixed-effects model was used to calculate pooled hazard ratios (HRs) for overall survival (OS) and disease-specific survival (DSS).; Results: Of the 219 articles screened, 9 articles were eligible, including 8 articles and 1 abstract. A total of 5923 patients with endometrial cancer who used statins were identified. Statin use was related to increased overall survival (HR, 0.80; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.66-0.95, without significant heterogeneity, I-2 = 52%, P = .080). Statin users also had increased disease-specific survival (HR, 0.69; 95% CI, 0.61-0.79, I-2 = 0.0%).; Conclusion: Statins are beneficial to the survival outcome of patients with endometrial cancer. The selection of statins as a 1st-line agent seems justified for endometrial carcinoma.
