In conclusion, a variety of sequelae that may follow x-radiation therapy of the lower abdomen and pelvis have been described. With the increasing use of supervoltage therapy and treatment with higher dosages, we can expect to see an increase in the number of injuries to internal organs. Surgical intervention after vigorous radiotherapy will be accompanied by more, and serious, complications. Careful planning of radiotherapy and regular observation during treatment by both the therapist and surgeon will do much to keep the clinician alert to the symptoms of overdosage.
