OBJECTIVE To assess the patterns of recurrence in cervical cancer patients treated with pelvic nodal clinical target volume at L4-L5 junction instead of aortic bifurcation. METHODS Records of patients with locally advanced cervical cancer treated with chemo-radiation were reviewed. Patients treated with standard pelvic fields (superior border of the field at L4/L5 junction), without any radiological evidence of regional lymphadenopathy (<10 mm) were included in the study. The level of aortic… CONTINUE READING
