Author(s): Pawel Blecharz, Krzysztof UrbaÅ?ski, Marian Reinfuss
The very first attempt to treat vaginal cancer with radiotherapy was done in 1929 in Boston. In 1940s 5-year overall survival rate was still below 18%. As a result of the advance in brachytherapy technics and combination of those with external beam radiotherapy in the 50s and 60s of the 20th century the 5-year survival rate grew up to 25-30%. The afterloading brachytherapy and intertissue implantations were developed in the 70s and 80s and high-dose brachytherapy technic was put into practice in the 90s. The 5-year survival rate in all stages of vaginal cancer together reached 50-60% in the late 90s of the last century.
