The purpose of this study was to monitor the dose modifying effect of supplemental dietry beta-carotene on the progression of the oral mucosal reaction and treatment outcome during an intensive course of synchronous radiation and chemotherapy. Tumour response and long term normal tissue changes have been carefully recorded. Twenty patients with advanced(More)
The rationale leading to the use of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) in the treatment of radionecrosis is described. Between January 1975 and February 1977, 13 patients received HBO at Groote Schuur Hospital for radionecrosis, and the response is evaluated in terms of pain relief and wound healing. The implications of these results are discussed.
Two-hundred twenty-one patients with soft tissue sarcoma were treated from 1978 to 1983. Treatment was nonrandomized and consisted of neutron irradiation in 94 cases with gross tumor. Treatment was nonrandomized and consisted of neutron boost irradiation after photon-irradiation or electron-irradiation in 127 cases with no gross tumor after surgery. Patient(More)
Seven cases of malignant fibrous histiocytoma of bone are documented. In addition to typical histologic features such as the presence of a storiform pattern, histiocytic and fibrocytic cell types and severe cellular atypism, in five cases there were areas in which osteoclast-type giant cells were prominent and the lesion resembled a giant cell tumor. Three(More)
A 20-year-old man was transferred to our institution with multiple penetrating thoracoabdominal wounds from a shotgun. Imaging revealed several retained shotgun pellets, 1 of which appeared to be located in the left atrium. He was asymptomatic from a cardiac standpoint and was first taken to the operating room to manage his multiple abdominal injuries.(More)
The long term results of 24 patients treated with postoperative irradiation for aggressive fibromatosis are presented. Tumour sites were the pelvis (8), chest wall (5), shoulder (5), extremities (4) and head and neck (2). Macroscopic complete resection (R1) was performed in 3 cases. 17 patients presented postoperatively with gross disease (R2), 8 of which(More)

The occurrence of pulmonary metastases in patients suffering from primary classic osteogenic sarcoma is compared among two groups of patients treated according to different protocols at Groote Schuur Hospital. A group of 28 patients treated by radiation and delayed amputation (before the end of 1974) is compared with 12 patients managed by immediate(More)
