Abstract

From 1973 through 1983, 27 women received postoperative open-field external beam abdominal radiotherapy as primary treatment of endometrial carcinoma. The 5-year survival rate was 71%. Two distinct prognostic groups were demonstrated. Patients with spread to the adnexa, peritoneal fluid, or both, had a 5-year relapse-free rate of 90%. Patients with macroscopic spread of cancer beyond the adnexa had a 5-year relapse-free rate of 0%. Guidelines are suggested for the radiotherapeutic management of endometrial cancer metastatic to the peritoneal cavity.
