Cyberknife Radiosurgery for Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Vulva After Prior Pelvic Radiation Therapy (p. 375-380)

Limited options exist for patients experiencing a local recurrence of vulvar malignancies after surgery and pelvic radiation. These recurrences often are associated with cancer-related skin desquamation and poor clinical outcomes. A new radiotherapeutic treatment modality for the previously irradiated patient is cyberknife radiosurgery, which uses a linear accelerator mounted on an industrial robotic arm to allow non-coplanar radiation therapy delivery with sub-millimeter precision. This study describes the first reported use of cyberknife radiosurgery for the treatment of recurrent vulvar cancer in three women.

Key words: Vulvar cancer; Cyberknife radiosurgery.
