Background. Clinical trials have helped refine management of early stage endometrial cancer (EC). For patients with intermediate risk features, adjuvant radiation is considered, primarily vaginal cuff brachytherapy. For higher risk patients, there may be a role for chemotherapy and radiation. The purpose of this study is to examine patterns of failure for early stage EC patients treated with postoperative high dose rate brachytherapy.
