Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma of the Palate in Adolescence
To report the long-term results of 449 patients treated with APBI using interstitial multicatheter high-dose-rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT) after breast-conserving surgery in a single institution.
Outcomes for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) treated with breast-conserving therapy using accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) with interstitial multicatheter brachytherapy are reported by a cooperative multi-institutional group.
To assess toxicity and adequate doses of adjuvant kilovoltage surface brachytherapy in resected ocular conjunctival carcinoma.
The first clinical trial in humans with skin and oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma was performed in order to evaluate the effect of a unique intra-tumoral alpha radiation based tumor ablation treatment termed Diffusing Alpha emitters Radiation Therapy (DaRT). DaRT is currently the only efficient brachytherapy for treatment of the entire volume of solid tumors by alpha radiation. DaRT relies on alpha particles and thus, effective against hypoxic tumors. DaRT seeds can be produced with various intensities, sizes and shapes and enable custom designed seeds for individual patients to deliver a more effective and conformal tr...
Interstitial brachytherapy (ISBT) is indicated in the definitive management of intact cervical carcinoma (IN-CC) if intracavitary brachytherapy (ICRT) yields unsatisfactory dosimetry or is technically not feasible. ISBT is also the brachytherapy of choice in patients of vault carcinoma (VA-C), where it provides excellent coverage with better sparing of the organs at risk. While, studies have assessed doses to pelvic lymph nodes in ICRT, the same has not been reported in ISBT. The present study evaluates the doses to pelvic lymph node groups in patients of carcinoma cervix treated with ISBT.
To report survival outcomes in women with stage II uterine endometrioid carcinoma who received adjuvant radiation therapy (RT) without chemotherapy (CT) using the National Cancer Database (NCDB).
This is the first report in the literature demonstrating the abscopal effect following clinical brachytherapy for human malignancy. The abscopal effect is tumor regression in untreated tumors due to some systemic agent generated by the irradiated tumor. Abscopal effect may be mediated by radiation induced production of T cell and other immunity factors by different cancer cell clones. Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) is a rare salivary gland cancer with a propensity to metastasize to lung. There is no known cure and current systemic cytotoxic and immune therapies are not effective.
This study was aimed to evaluate the feasibility and safety of CT-MPR guided percutaneous iodine-125 implantation for hepatic carcinoma and extrahepatic metastases.
This study investigates the feasibility, safety and preliminary efficacy of gastric tube with 125I seeds in the treatment of advanced esophageal carcinoma.
To investigate the local control rate, safety and operative techniques of CT-guided iodine-125 (125I) seeds implantation for mediastinal lymph node metastasis from advanced lung squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).
