    Abstract

    Eighty-five patients with soft-tissue sarcoma of different localization were subjected to combined treatment. In 34 patients the surgical intervention was supplemented by the exposure of the tumor bed to fast electron beam and in 26 of them the operation was also followed by distant gamma therapy. Twenty-five patients were subjected to organ-sparing surgery with the subsequent distant gamma irradiation. Intraoperative radiotherapy was carried out directly in the operation room using a small pulsed MIB-6E betatron. Exposure dose was as a rule 20 Gy. The best two-year survival takes place in the group subjected to surgery + intraoperative irradiation + postoperative irradiation.
