The value of radiation therapy in uterine sarcoma.


Fifty-eight cases of leiomyosarcoma of the uterus and 47 endometrial sarcomas of the uterus are reviewed based on the pertinent information related to recurrence patterns. The following conclusions are made: 1) Cases of endometrial sarcoma should receive preoperative pelvic irradiation, or postoperative pelvic irradiation if a diagnosis is not made until the postoperative period. This plan will probably be of most benefit, if at all, in stage 1 disease. 2) A case for pelvic irradiation as an adjuvant to surgery in leiomyosarcoma cannot be made from a review of this material, either from a viewpoint of recurrence patterns or radio-responsiveness.
