The Effectiveness of Palliative Radiotherapy in the Management of Metastatic Bone Disease
Charn Il Park, Sung Whan Ha
To determine the effectiveness of radiotherapy for the palliation of pain in metas- tatic bone disease, we retrospectively analyzed the treatment results in 32 patients who received short-courae radiotherapy(2000 rad/I wk vs. 3000 rad/2 wk) in the dept. 'of Therapeutic Radiology, Seoul National University Hospital from Feb. 1979 to Oct. 1981. The results are as follows; 1, The incidence of metastatic bone tumor was highest in pelvis and thoracic spine, 27 and 24%., respectively. 2, Lung, kidney, stomach, breast and cervix were the primary sites, in order of frequency. 3. Overall response rate was 92% with excellent response in 48%. 4, There was no significant difference between the dose-fraction schedules of 2000 rad in 1 week and 3000 rad in 2 weeka. 6. We concluded that 2000 rad in 1 wk is at least as effective as 3000 rad in 2 weeks :in the palliation of bone metastasis.
