Abstract

Seventeen patients with pancreatic carcinoma were treated with intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) combined with hyperthermia. Their treatment results were compared with those of 56 patients treated with the IORT alone (control group). The pain relief rate and the local tumor control rate of the hyperthermia group were slightly better than the control group. The survival rate of all patients was 13.7% at one year, 1.4% at two years (median, 5.0 months). The survival of the hyperthermia group was marginally better than that of the control group. Only 29% of the patients of the hyperthermia group was successfully heated, and if hyperthermia were given successfully to all patients, their prognoses would have been possibly improved.
