Intraoperative radiotherapy for gastrointestinal malignancies: contemporary outcomes with multimodality therapy.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
The integration of intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) into the multimodal treatment of gastrointestinal cancer is feasible and leads to high rates of local control. In-field tumoral control using IORT-containing strategies can be achieved in over 90 % of most cases, regardless of the site or status of the tumor (primary or recurrent). Electron beam IORT, or intraoperative electron radiation therapy, is the dominant technology used in institutions reporting data in publications the 21st century. Neither surgery nor systemic therapy is compromised by the integration of IORT-containing radiotherapy.
