Acute and Delayed Effects of Radiotherapy in Patients with oesophageal Squamous cell Carcinoma Treated with Chemotherapy, Surgery and Pre- and Postoperative Radiotherapy

Acute and Delayed Effects of Radiotherapy in Patients with oesophageal Squamous cell Carcinoma Treated with Chemotherapy, Surgery and Pre- and Postoperative Radiotherapy Among 73 patients with oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma treated with chemotherapy (cis-platin + 5-fluorouracil), surgery and pre- and postoperative radiotherapy, the 1-year survival rate was 68% and the 5-year rate 26%. The treatment was well tolerated, though there were 11 cases of pericardial or pleural effusion, in all of which the effusion was benign and could be successfully treated with pleural aspiration and/or pleurodesis, pericardiocentesis, or in one case pericardectomy. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Acta Oncologica Informa Healthcare
