In 1981, a protocol was developed at the Institute Gustave-Roussy, utilizing combined interstitial hyperthermia and brachytherapy, to treat recurrent tumors in previously irradiated areas. This protocol consisted of interstitial hyperthermia, 44 degrees C for 45 minutes, followed immediately by iridium 192 curietherapy, delivering 30 Gy in 2 or 3 days to the tumor volume.
