PURPOSE To evaluate the normal tissue reactions and loco-regional control rates (LRC) in patients treated with 7-days-a-week postoperative continuous irradiation (p-CAIR) compared to conventionally fractionated 5-days-a-week postoperative radiotherapy (CF). MATERIALS/METHODS Between 2001 and 2004, 279 patients with high-risk squamous cell cancer of the(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the prognostic value of hemoglobin (Hb) concentration in patients with laryngeal cancer treated with postoperative radiotherapy (pRT). METHODS AND MATERIALS The records of 835 patients who underwent pRT between 1980 and 2003 were reviewed. Most patients (526 of 835 patients; 63%) were in advanced clinical stages (T3-T4) and 371 of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To analyse acute mucosal reactions in patients treated with continuous accelerated postoperative irradiation (p-CAIR) compared to conventionally fractionated postoperative radiotherapy (p-CF). PATIENTS AND METHODS The patients were randomly assigned to receive 63 Gy in 1.8 Gy fractions 7-days-a-week given over a period of 5 weeks(More)
BACKGROUND The treatment of large arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) or AVMs involving eloquent regions of the brain remains a challenge. For inoperable lesions, observation, volume-staged radiosurgery or hypofractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (HFSRT) are proposed. The aim of our study was to assess the safety and efficiency of HFSRT for large AVMs(More)
The aim of this study is to present evaluation of treatment toxicity and the rate of local control in non-small cell lung cancer patients (NSCLC) treated with stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). The analysis was performed on heterogenous group of 61 NSCLC patients, treated with SBRT between 2005 and 2008. It included 26 patients in clinical stage I, 5 in(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the prognostic factors for the risk of distant metastases after postoperative radiotherapy for laryngeal cancer. MATERIAL AND METHODS Medical records of 267 patients cancer treated between 1997 and 2003 were analyzed. All pts had locally advanced squamous cell laryngeal cancer treated with surgery and postoperative radiotherapy.(More)
PURPOSE Comparison of stage larynx carcinoma and estimation of hazard dissemination lymph nodes in preoperative clinical and postoperative histological examination according to the TNM staging system. MATERIAL AND METHODS The group of 100 patients with previously untreated squamous cell carcinoma of larynx was analysed. The material consisted of: 89 man(More)
OBJECTIVE The study was prospectively designed as a single-arm, single-institution prospective trial of pre-operative concomitant hyperfractionated radiotherapy (HART) with co-administration of chemotherapy based on 5-fluorouracil (5FU) in patients with T2/N+ or T3/any N resectable mid-low primary rectal cancer. The aim of the study was to assess the safety(More)
