Comparative analysis of the results of combined radiotherapy of cervix cancer using 60Co sources of high and low activity for intracavitary irradiation



Comparative analysis of the results of combined radiotherapy of cervix cancer using 60Co sources of high and low activity for intracavitary irradiation



Voprosy Onkologii 32(5): 47-50



The results of complex radiation therapy in 130 patients with cervical cancer were compared. Colpometrostats (components of AraT-B apparatus) with automatically-fed sources of 60Co high-level radiation were used for intracavitary treatment in 65 patients (group I). Gynecologic gamma-ray applicators with manually afterloaded 60Co low-level radiation sources were employed in group 2. No recurrence or metastasis were identified in stage I-II cases of both groups within the first 3 years of follow-up. Metastases into regional lymph nodes were detected in 3 patients (stage III) in group I and recurrences with advancing metastatic spread in 4 patients of group 2. Radiation-induced complications were relatively frequent in group 2.
