Extended mantle radiation therapy for pathologic stage I and II Hodgkin's disease

, : Extended mantle radiation therapy for pathologic stage I and II Hodgkin's disease. Journal of Clinical Oncology 6(6): 1047-1052

Between 1968 and 1983, 135 patients with pathologic stage (PS) I and II Hodgkin's disease were treated with extended mantle radiation technique (EMRT) at Michael Reese Hospital and the University of Chicago Center for Radiation Therapy. EMRT combines both standard mantle and para-aorta fields (M-PA) in one port. Actuarial disease-free survival at 5 and 10 years was 82.5%. Actuarial overall survival was 96% and 83% at 5 and 10 years, respectively. Acute complications were evaluated in 112 patients available for analysis. Severe nausea and vomiting occurred in 13%, weight loss of greater than 10% of body weight in 19%, and acute hematologic toxicity in 4% of patients. Bone marrow suppression was transient and did not interfere with subsequent delivery of salvage treatment with either chemotherapy or radiation therapy in 22 patients who relapsed. The cost of EMRT is 40% lower than the cost of treatment with M-PA. The median treatment time was 38 days, 33% less than the 56 days for M-PA field assuming no interruptions. These results suggest that the EMT is a safe and effective treatment tolerated by most patients. The advantages of this method are eliminating the possibility of technical error of matching between mantle and para-aortic field, decreasing overall treatment time, and reducing the cost.
