Owing to the location of the pancreas and its complex anatomical relationship, it is difficult to perform radioactive Iodine-125 seed implantation in patients with pancreatic cancer as it can cause surgical side effects and further complications. To standardize the procedure of radioactive Iodine-125 seed implantation in the treatment of pancreatic cancer and reduce the occurrence of adverse reactions and complications during and after operation, the Chinese Medical Doctor Association of Radioactive Seed Implantation Technology Expert Committee, Committee of Minimally Invasive Therapy in Oncology, Chinese Anti-Cancer Association, and the Radioactive Seed Therapy Branch organized and helped establish an expert consensus in China regarding radioactive Iodine-125 seed implantation in the treatment of pancreatic cancer. This article aims at interpreting the adverse reactions and complications after the implantation of radioactive seeds.
