Abstract

During the period from 1986 to 1991, 33 patients with unresectable carcinoma of the pancreas received intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT). Abdominal and back pain which tormented all patients before IORT totally disappeared in 18 patients (54%) and was allevrited in 13 patients (40%). The average survival time of 6.5 months for patients treated with IORT was not statistically different from that of 30 patients with resectable pancreatic cancers undergoing resection. IORT hence is a good palliative therapy for unresectable carcinoma of the pancreas.
