Abstract

RADPLAT results in excellent local-regional control and survival in patients with advanced squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck. Outcomes from the University of Florida are comparable to those reported by other institutions. However, in our limited experience, the likelihood of osteoradionecrosis and permanent gastrostomy may be higher than what might be anticipated after RT alone or combined with intravenous chemotherapy.
