Objective: The objective of the study was to evaluate computed tomography (CT)-guided 125I implantation for the treatment of recurrent and malignant pelvic tumors. Materials and Methods: Fifteen cases of pelvic malignant tumors were studied. Tumor length/diameter was 4–10 cm (average: 6.8 ± 2.3 cm). In patients with pelvic recurrence or metastasis of malignant tumors, comprehensive treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy, or radiotherapy, was performed alongside CT-guided 125I implantation. The follow-up clinical benefit rate, rate of pain relief, quality of life score, and status of any complications were analyzed. Results: The patients were followed up for 6 months after the operation, and evaluation of lesions revealed complete response (CR) in 3/15 cases, partial response (PR) in 8/15 cases, stable disease in 3/15 cases, and progressive disease in 1/15 cases. The total effective rate (CR + PR) was 73.3% (11/15), and the pain relief rate was 86.6% (13/15). No bleeding, pelvic abscesses, intestinal fistulas, intestinal perforations, or other complications were reported. Conclusions: When using CT-guided 125I implantation, patients with malignant abdominal tumors undergo a convenient operation, sustain little trauma, and have an improved quality of life.
