Abstract

From 1971 through 1981, 81 women received 4350 to 5075 rad to the periaortic lymph nodes as part of their primary management for carcinoma of the uterine cervix. While two patients developed chronic small bowel damage, only one required surgical intervention. Five-year disease-free survival was 40%. Approximately one-third of the first recurrences were within the pelvic and periaortic radiation portals, with the remainder in the lungs, liver, bones, abdomen, and supraclavicular lymph nodes. Radiation dose and volume guidelines are presented in order to minimize enteric morbidity.
