V on Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is a rare autosomal dominant disorder characterised by a predisposition to haemangioblastomas of the central nervous system (cHAB) and retina (rHAB), renal cell carcinomas (RCC), phaeochromocytomas and paragangliomas, endolymphatic sac tumours (ELST), pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (PNET), papillary cystadenomas of(More)
PURPOSE In this study two different pre-planning methods (2D vs. 3D) were compared in respect to the implant quality as judged by volumetric and dose parameters of the treatment plans. The aim of this work was to evaluate the influence of the imaging modalities used for pre-planning purpose to the treatment plan quality. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty-four(More)
Endometrial cancer is the most frequent cancer of female genital tract. Metro- and menorrhagia or postmenopausal bleeding results in its early presentation. It allows radical treatment. However, controversies remain on surgery coverage or adjuvant therapies in early endometrial women cancer. Optimal management should minimize intervention instead of(More)
Prostate cancer, due to wide availability of PSA tests, is very often diagnosed in early stage, nowadays. This makes management of this disease even harder in every day oncology care. There is a wide range of treatment options including surgery, radiotherapy and active surveillance, but essential question is which treatment patient and oncologist should(More)
This study includes four years of our clinical trials to improve implant quality in multicatheter accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI). The progress in dosimetric and volumetric parameters of the treatment plans was evaluated. One hundred and ninety-one women, for whom treatment plans were made based on three dimensional imaging, were selected for(More)
PURPOSE In early stage mobile tongue cancer radical radiotherapy offers good local control and organ preservation, which is especially important in the group of young patients. In our department, for many years HDR-BT has been performed in mobile tongue cancers as a sole treatment or as a "boost" with EBRT. The aim of the study was to show our experience(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical data that compare external-beam radiotherapy (EBRT) combined with high-dose-rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT) boost versus EBRT alone are scarce. The analysis of published studies suggest that biochemical relapse-free survival in combined EBRT and HDR-BT may be superior compared to EBRT alone. We retrospectively examined the effectiveness and(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to present an original technique of catheter implantation for perioperative HDR-Ir192 brachytherapy in patients after palliative operations of unresectable locally advanced pancreatic tumors and to estimate the influence of perioperative HDR-Ir192 brachytherapy on pain relief in terminal pancreatic cancer patients.

Between October 1998-August 2000, 65 patients were diagnosed, and underwent stereotactic biopsy of brain lesions. Procedures were performed with the Riechert-Mundinger stereotactic device. The diagnosis was made intra-operatively, by examination of cytological smears. The initial diagnosis was confirmed after H&E, and selective stains, as well as(More)
