FIGURE 2 Disease-specific survival by AJCC stage for adenocarcinoma of the small bowel, 1985 to 1990; P< 0.0001 for stages I, II, III versus IV, P = 0.0015 for stage I versus III, P = not significant for stage II versus I and III.

Gender, race/ethnicity, and income were examined with respect to DSS, and no significant correlation was found (4). However, the age of the patient at presentation was significantly associated with survival (4), with the five-year survival for patients aged over 75 years being 22% compared to 33% for patients aged 60 to 75 years and 34% for those younger than 60 years (P < 0.0001).
