A descriptive, observational study, of retrospective cohort was carried out in 90 operated patients for colorectal cancer with curative aims, who had been attended in the Coloproctology Service of "Dr. Ambrosio Grillo Portuondo" University Hospital in Santiago de Cuba, from January, 1993 to December, 2003, with the objective of determining their survival, for which the method of Kaplan-Meier estimate was applied. Among the relevant results there were the female sex and the age older than 60 years; it was also observed that the patients operated for this cause survived an average of 5 year, with variations not far from the world statistics, according to the clinical and epidemiological variables selected.

Key words: colorectal cancer, survival, Kaplan-Meier test, Coloproctology Service.
