|Citation:||Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand. Vol.76 Suppl 1, (1993), 78-81|
|Abstract:||At the Radiation Therapy Section, Ramathibodi Hospital, from June 1, 1981 to May 31, 1991, there were 35 out of 1,683 new cases of carcinoma of the uterine cervix which presented with massive bleeding per vagina. All were treated via cobalt-60 teletherapy covering the whole pelvic region by 12 x 12 cm2 or 16 x 16 cm2 field sizes. Eighteen cases received a radiation dose of 300 cGy/fraction while 16 cases received 400 cGy and one case received 600 cGy. All had bleeding controlled within 2-6 fractions, twenty-two cases (62.9%) within 3 fractions and 34 cases (97.1%) within 5 fractions. There was no severe acute complication in all patients. In 10 patients who were followed up to the range of 3-70 months, median 16.5 showed no severe late complications.|
