Many patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) present with advanced disease, not amenable to curative therapies such as surgery, transplantation or radiofrequency ablation. Treatment options for this group of patients include transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and radiation therapy. Especially TACE, delivering a highly concentrated dose of(More)
PURPOSE To estimate the value of LINAC-based stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for the long-term local control of unilateral acoustic neuromas. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty patients (median age 66; range 57-80 years) with unilateral acoustic neuroma underwent LINAC-based SRS from May 2000 through June 2004 with a dose of 11-12 Gy. The follow-up period(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the long-term efficacy and toxicity in a group of consecutive patients treated with linear accelerator (linac) radiosurgery for acoustic neuromas and meningiomas. METHODS Between 2000 and 2004, 34 patients (median age 65.5 years, range 50-84) with acoustic neuroma or meningioma were treated with linac-based stereotactic radiosurgery(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this analysis was a retrospective evaluation of the efficacy and toxicity of 2 hypofractionated irradiation schedules compared to conventional therapy in post-mastectomy patients. METHODS 3 irradiation schedules were analyzed: 48.30 Gy in 21 fractions (group A, n = 60), 42.56 Gy in 16 fractions (group B, n = 27) and 50 Gy in 25(More)
AIM To measure the dose distribution, related to the treatment planning calculations, in the contralateral mammary gland of breast cancer patients treated with accelerated hypofractionated 3-dimensional conformal radiotherapy. METHODS Thirty-four prospectively selected female patients with right breast cancer (pN0, negative surgical margins) were treated(More)
We present a case of unresectable cancer of the base of tongue treated with hypofractionated 3D conformal radiotherapy and concomitant chemotherapy. Based on the excellent tumour response in this radiotherapy regimen and international experience in short course treatments we shortly reviewed, we propose that this therapeutic approach could be considered in(More)
In the last decades the status of radiotherapy was tremendously increased in terms of conformity to the target as well as image-guided techniques in conjunction with intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). The technological improvement had a significant clinical outcome for better response and lower toxicity to the surrounding normal tissues. Nowadays the(More)
