PURPOSE The study was initiated to obtain epidemiologic data and information on anatomic and histologic distribution, clinical features, and treatment results in patients with primary gastrointestinal non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (PGI NHL). PATIENTS AND METHODS Between October 1992 and November 1996, 371 PGI NHL patients were eligible to evaluate clinical(More)
PURPOSE In the prospective study 02/96 on primary GI lymphoma, we have collected data on histology, clinical features, and treatment results. In particular, in stages I and II localized primary gastric lymphoma (PGL), our objectives were to reduce treatment intensity and to confirm our hypothesis from study 01/92, which maintained that an organ-preserving(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate failures and to investigate the need for prophylactic inclusion of the inguinal lymph nodes in case of whole abdominal irradiation in gastrointestinal lymphoma. PATIENTS AND METHOD In October 1992 a prospective study on primary gastrointestinal lymphoma was initiated to evaluate management strategies. Treatment consisted either of(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to obtain data on anatomic and histologic distribution, clinical features, and treatment results of patients with primary gastrointestinal non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, particularly combined surgical and conservative treatment (CSCT) versus conservative treatment (CT) alone for primary gastric lymphoma (PGL) in localized stages.(More)
PURPOSE/OBJECTIVE Biology and appropriate management of gastrointestinal (GI lymphomas are matters of an ongoing controversial debate. To evaluate histological features, sites of involvement and management of primary GI-lymphomas, a prospective multicentric study was initiated in 10/1992. Aim of study was the further standardization of operative and(More)
PURPOSE Different doses and techniques used in high-dose-rate (HDR) prostate brachytherapy make it difficult to define universal quality parameters. The aim of this study was to develop individual, objective parameters for the evaluation of an HDR brachytherapy plan for prostate radiation. METHODS Fifty-three patients who received an HDR brachytherapy(More)
Locoregional recurrences of breast cancer are associated with considerable morbidity and frequently present with concurrent metastatic disease. Yet patients without systemic spread can be treated with curative intent. In a retrospective analysis, the results of treatment of these patients have been evaluated at our institution. Between 1987 and 1996, 113(More)
PURPOSE Recent trials with low-dose total skin electron beam (TSEB) therapy demonstrated encouraging results for treating primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (PCTCL). In this study, we assessed the feasibility of different radiation doses and estimated survival rates of different pathologic entities and stages. METHODS AND MATERIALS We retrospectively(More)
PURPOSE Linac-based intraoperative radiotherapy with electrons (IOERT) was implemented to prevent local recurrences after breast conserving therapy (BCT) and was delivered as an intraoperative boost to the tumor bed prior to whole breast radiotherapy (WBI). A collaborative analysis has been performed by European ISIORT member institutions for long term(More)
In the primary treatment of breast cancer, postoperative radiotherapy is performed in high-risk patients after mastectomy and in patients who received breast conserving surgery. In a retrospective analysis, our mono-institutional results of postoperative irradiation have been evaluated. Patients and Methods: Between 1992 and 1996, 500 patients have been(More)
