Radium treatment of primary vaginal carcinoma

Strahlentherapie 153(8): 526-530

Radium treatment of primary vaginal carcinoma

Between 1951 and 1970, 263 cases with primary carcinoma of the vagina were observed at the Irradiation-Department of the Ist University Clinic of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Vienna. As method of choice the individual, fractioned and protracted Radium-Röntgen-Telekoalt-therapy is recommended. Of the 263 primary vaginal carcinomas 112 (42,5%) were cured. During the time mentioned in this report, we did not have any primary mortality; 24 women, however, could only be subjected to a palliative therapy, 20 patients died from an intercurrent disease and 20 women succumbed to a second carcinoma. Conclusively, the authors present a survey about the results in vaginal carcinoma.
