Abstract

In a group of 110 patients operated on for endometrial carcinoma the tolerance of a supplementary pulsatile intravaginal brachytherapy was assessed. Early light post-radiation reaction in the vagina and in the anus was found in a total of 9 (8.2%) patients, whereas late reaction occurred in 6 (5.5%) patients. One patient showed the fourth degree post-radiation reaction in the anus. During the follow-up no remission was observed in the vagina.

Pulsatile brachytherapy is a safe and effective supplementary method of treatment in patients operated on for endometrial carcinoma.
