PURPOSE To evaluate the relationship between brachytherapy dose and outcome in patients treated with external radiotherapy (40 Gy to the whole pelvis) and intracavitary radium therapy for bulky endocervical tumors. METHODS AND MATERIALS Between 1962 and 1985, 98 patients with Stage IB-IIB bulky endocervical carcinomas (> or = 6 cm in diameter) treated with radiotherapy alone received 40 Gy to the whole pelvis followed by 2 or more intracavitary treatments. Twenty-five patients received < 6000… CONTINUE READING
