A new laparoscopic method of bowel radio-protection before pelvic chemoradiation of locally advanced cervix cancers

Abstract

Chemoradiation therapy (CRT) has become the mainstay of locally advanced cervical carcinomas (LACC). However, the price to pay is a significant rate of both early and late colo-rectal toxicities, which may impact on survivors’ quality of life. To reduce the incidence of such complications, we suggest a simple technique of pelvic radioprotection. An omental… (More)
