PurposeOur objective was to assess the feasibility, efficacy, and complications of high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy for patients with recurrent esophageal cancer after external radiotherapy.Materials and methodsSix patients with recurrent esophageal cancer after external radiotherapy were treated with HDR brachytherapy (Ir-192 source) from January 2003 to February 2004. The median age of the patients was 69 years. All patients had received external radiotherapy (median dose 60 Gy) before HDR… Expand
