br In summary our results suggest that
In summary, our results suggest that combined-radiotherapy and systemic chemotherapy offers excellent outcomes for patients with all subtypes of stage IIIC endometrial cancer. For patients with low-grade endometrioid histology, radiotherapy alone may be sufficient, especially for patients at high risk for toxicity from multimodality treatment.
