To improve the surgical outcome in patients with radiation enteritis, 18 female cases were analyzed. Out of the 18 cases, 3 (16.7%) were treated conservatively while 15 (83.3%) underwent surgical procedures. Thirteen out of 14 patients (92.8%) with ileus underwent an operation. The overall mortality was 22.2% (4 out of 18 cases). However, no significant difference in the mortality between the operated and non-operated cases was observed. Although an analysis of the 15 operated cases did not reveal any significant factors that might have affected the prognosis, all four patients who underwent a bypass operation showed a good postoperative course, with only one exception being a patient suffering from malnutrition. Although only a small number of patients were included in this study, these results suggest that 1) surgeons should not hesitate to operate on patients with radiation enteritis demonstrating ileus, and 2) a bypass operation may be one surgical alternative in the presence of massive adhesion or for patients at high risk for a standard operation.
