Radiation Therapy Complications

Radiation therapy is a powerful and effective tool used to battle cancer. The treatment involves focusing special high energy x-rays to damage or terminate cancer cells.

However, not all outcomes are favourable. In some cases, damage to normal tissue can occur and unpleasant complications may evolve after irradiation. These complications are variably known as radiation late effects, delayed radiation injury, and radiation necrosis. The biological effects of radiation exposure can be divided into 2 groups:

  • If sustained following treatment the problem is called persistent radiation effects.
  • If initial inflammation settles but tissue deterioration and loss of function develops after three months, this has been termed radiation late effects

At MEDICAL OXYGEN REPAIR – MO2R, we specialize in treating these collateral damage results of therapeutic radiation therapy.

Our treatments remedy the complications or “collateral damage” to normal tissue following radiotherapy destruction of the tumor cells.

Treating Radiation Late Effects

Since 2002, Dr. Wayne Evans, has managed radiation therapy collateral damage to normal tissues. This is a specialized field of activity with only 3 physicians in Ontario actively involved in this work.

Treatment of such delayed radiation injury​​​​​​ has helped hundreds of patients to date, and a range of therapeutic options have been developed and explored to meet the needs of this affected population.

The ongoing fibro-atrophic injury post-radiotherapy can be managed with hyperbaric oxygen plus other therapeutic agents.
