abstract

  • Tumor grade, depth of invasion, and the use of CSS were better predictors of pelvic control than the GOG#99 HR factors. IVRT alone seemed to provide adequate tumor control with very low morbidity. Therefore, it seems prudent to consider it for intermediate-risk patients because of its superior therapeutic ratio compared with that for surgery alone or pelvic RT. Additional follow-up, however, with a larger number of patients is needed, especially for those with LVI.
