In this video, Marcus Randall, MD, of the University of Kentucky College of Medicine, discusses a phase III Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) trial that compared pelvic radiation therapy vs vaginal cuff brachytherapy plus paclitaxel/carboplatin in patients with early-stage, high-risk endometrial cancer.
