In conclusion, this study underscores the efficacy and safety of moderately hypo-fractionated radiotherapy with concurrent chemotherapy for locally advanced cervical carcinoma. We observed a 5-year OS of 67.02% and a DFS of 77.65%. Importantly, severe treatment-related toxicities were infrequent and manageable. These findings support the viability of this treatment regimen as a promising option for these patients to reduce OTT and enhance the radiobiological effectiveness of the treatment. Further prospective research and larger studies will be valuable for solidifying these results and optimizing treatment strategies.
