Abstract

Abstract With the extended indications for abdominal and pelvic radiation therapy, administered at higher dosage levels, an increased incidence of radiation injury to the intestine can be anticipated. Increased efforts are urgently needed to develop innovative methods in the detection, prevention, and management of radiation-induced intestinal injury. Fifty cases of radiation enteropathy have been reviewed to highlight problems in management and to suggest preventive and therapeutic measures, both surgical and nonsurgical.
