Correlation of the results of radiotherapy of pancreatic cancer with different clinical factors

Journal Article:

Abstract

Altogether 124 patients with pancreatic cancer radiation treated at doses of 50-80 Gy. With the period of medical history from 1 to 6 months in 82.1 % of the patients, 6-12 months in 74.4 % and over 12 months in 61.9 % of the patients the mean survival time after radiotherapy was respectively 20.1, 15.5 and 14.3 months, i.e. radiotherapeutic results got worse with the increase of the period of disease. Better survival results were obtained for pancreatic head cancer (14.7 months), worse results in its total involvement (10.4 months). Optimum time between operation and irradiation depending on the degree of jaundice was 0.5-1.5 months. With concomitant pancreatitis irradiation was combined with i.v. administration of contrykal that helped to alleviate the pain syndrome. Irradiation of pancreatic cancer complicated by diabetes mellitus facilitates the course of diabetes during follow-up.
