Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the therapeutic response and toxicity of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) or conventional radiotherapy (c-RT) as adjuvant therapy in patients with pelvic locoregional recurrence of cervical cancer after radical surgery.
Methods: This retrospective study included 161 patients with unresectable pelvic locoregional recurrence of cervical cancer after radical surgery between March 2003 and May 2012. All patients were initially diagnosed with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage IB-IIA cervical cancer and received radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy. Read More

Background: The need for radiotherapy (RT) in cancer treatment for the elderly patient is growing. The purpose of this study was to analyze the efficacy and complication rate for radiotherapy, using external-beam irradiation (EBRT) and high dose-rate intracavitary brachytherapy (HDRICB), for patients aged 70 years or older with carcinoma of the uterine cervix.
Methods: From September 1992 to December 1997, 295 patients diagnosed with uterine cervical cancer completed RT at the Shin Kong Memorial Hospital and China Medical College Hospital. Read More

Purpose: To determine the prognostic factors related to local control and survival in 257 patients with uterine cervical cancer treated with definitive radiotherapy (RT).
Materials And Methods: The medical records of 257 patients treated with definitive RT from January 1987 to December 1998 were reviewed retrospectively. Pretreatment and treatment parameters were analyzed to determine their prognostic value onlocal control and survival. Read More

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the late toxicity and efficacy of twice-daily external irradiation to the pelvis and lumbar para-aortic region with brachytherapy and concurrent chemotherapy for carcinoma of the cervix with positive para-aortic lymph nodes.
Patients And Methods: This study was designed to administer twice-daily radiation doses of 1.2 Gy to the pelvis and lumbar para-aortic lymph nodes (simultaneously) at 4-6-h intervals, 5 days per week. Read More
