Effective treatment of Stage I uterine papillary serous carcinoma with high dose-rate vaginal apex radiation (192Ir) and chemotherapy
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Patients with UPSC should undergo complete surgical staging, and completely surgically staged FIGO Stage I UPSC patients can be effectively and safely treated with HDR vaginal apex brachytherapy and chemotherapy. Both OS and DFS of patients with UPSC are dependent on depth of myometrial invasion. The salvage rate for both local and distant UPSC recurrences is extremely poor. Complications from HDR vaginal apex brachytherapy were minimal.
