Abstract

Risk of local recurrence of rectal cancer remains high despite extensive therapeutic strategies, many of which have been tried to achieve better local control (i.e., external beam radiation therapy (EBRT)). Recently, intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) has been introduced in clinical protocols to boost the areas at risk of local recurrence.
