  1. Resource utilization : high dose rate versus low dose rate brachytherapy for gynecologic cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    A comparative analysis of anesthesia use, perioperative morbidity and mortality, capital, and treatment cost of high dose rate versus low dose rate intracavitary brachytherapy for gynecologic malignancy is presented.

    To assess current anesthesia utilization, application location, and high dose rate afterloader availability for gynecologic brachytherapy in private and academic practices, a nine-question survey was sent to 150 radiotherapy centers in the United States, of which 95 (63%) responded.

    Of these 95 respondents, 95% used low dose rate brachytherapy, and 18% possessed high dose rate capability.

    General anesthesia was used in 95% of programs for tandem+ovoid and in 31% for ovoid-only placement.
