OBJECTIVE Present long-term outcomes in primary cervical cancer treated with external beam and high dose rate interstitial brachytherapy. METHODS High dose rate (HDR) interstitial (IS) brachytherapy (BT) and external beam (EBRT) were administered from 1992 to 2009 to 315 patients who were unsuitable for intracavitary (IC) BT alone. Histology was 89%(More)
PURPOSE To determine the utility of ureteral stents in interstitial gynecological brachytherapy. METHODS AND MATERIALS We reviewed 289 patients with cervix cancer treated with high-dose-rate interstitial brachytherapy who did not have pretreatment hydronephrosis to determine the relative incidence of benign ureteral strictures after treatment. We also did(More)
