abstract

  • Radical surgical resection and combined IORT for patients with recurrent gynecologic tumors seems to provide a reasonable local-control rate in patients who have failed prior surgery and/or definitive radiation. Patient selection is very important, however, as only those patients with complete gross resection at completion of surgery appear to benefit most from this radical approach in the salvage setting.
