La proctite attinica

Translated title of the contribution: Radiation proctitis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Radiation-induced proctopathy is a frequent complication of pelvic radiotherapy. The chronic stage is mainly characterized by rectal bleeding that may be severe enough to lead to a need for blood transfusions. In this setting medical therapy does not appear effective. Chronic radiation proctopathy has been treated successfully with topical formalin and with a number of endoscopic techniques including bipolar electrocoagulation, heat probe coagulation, laser photocoagulation and argon plasma coagulation.
