Abstract

Radiation therapy for pelvic organ malignancy can result in chronic radiation proctopathy with significant morbidity. Treatments include medical and endoscopic techniques with surgical intervention reserved for resistant cases. There is limited efficacy data and no standardization of treatment regimens, which makes therapeutic recommendations somewhat anecdotal. The more frequently used endoscopic techniques are described in detail with recommendations for particular patient scenarios based on our experience.
