Vaginal cancer guidelines – ESGO Gynae-Oncology Guidelines

ESTRO-ESGO-SIOPe Guidelines for the Management of Patients with Vaginal Cancer

The European Society of Gynaecological Oncology (ESGO), the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) and the European Society of Pediatric Oncology (SIOPE) jointly developed the Vaginal Cancer Guidelines.

The project was chaired by Prof. Remi Nout (ESTRO, the Netherlands), Prof. Christina Fotopoulou (ESGO, United Kingdom), and Prof. Gabriele Calaminus (SIOPE, Germany).

The ESGO would like to express a sincere gratitude to the international panel of radiotherapy, brachytherapy, gynaecological oncology, pediatric gynaecological oncology and pathology experts for dedicating their time and efforts in the development of these important Guidelines.
