Patients with advanced cervical carcinoma are treated routinely with radiotherapy and cisplatin-containing chemotherapy. It has been shown that hyperthermia can improve the results of both radiotherapy and cisplatin. In the current study, the feasibility and efficacy of the combination of all three modalities was studied in previously untreated patients with cervical carcinoma.
