ASTRO issues guideline on the role of postoperative radiation therapy for endometrial cancer
Date:4/23/2014

Fairfax, Va., April 23, 2014 The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has issued a new guideline, "The Role of Postoperative Radiation Therapy for Endometrial Cancer: An ASTRO Evidence-Based Guideline," that details the use of adjuvant radiation therapy in the treatment of endometrial cancer. The guideline's executive summary is published in the May-June 2014 issue of Practical Radiation Oncology (PRO), the official clinical practice journal of ASTRO. The full-length guideline is available as an open-access article online at http://www.practicalradonc.org.

The data population selected for the guideline was defined as women of all races, age 18 or older, with stage I-IV endometrial cancer of any histologic type or grade. The studies included patients who underwent a hysterectomy followed by no adjuvant therapy, or pelvic and/or vaginal brachytherapy with or without systemic chemotherapy. The panel identified five key questions about the role of adjuvant radiation therapy and developed a series of recommendations to address each question.

The first Key Question addresses which patients with endometrioid endometrial cancer require no additional therapy after hysterectomy. For patients with no residual disease in the hysterectomy specimen despite positive biopsy or grade 1 or 2 cancers with either no invasion or <50 percent myometrial invasion, especially when no other high-risk features are present, no adjuvant radiation therapy is a reasonable option. Patients with grade 3 cancers without myometrial invasion or grade 1 or 2 cancers with <50 percent myometrial invasion and higher risk factors such as age >60 and/or lymphovascu
