Recent work suggests that treatment with inhaled beta(2)-agonists reduces the incidence of high-altitude pulmonary edema in susceptible subjects by increasing respiratory epithelial sodium transport. We estimated respiratory epithelial ion transport by transepithelial nasal potential difference (NPD) measurements in 20 normal male subjects before, during,(More)
PURPOSE To analyse the influence of the learning curve on dosimetric data for high-dose-rate brachytherapy prostate cancer boost. PATIENTS AND METHODS From February 2009 to May 2012, after a first course of external beam radiation therapy (46Gy/23 fractions), 124 patients underwent high-dose-rate brachytherapy boost using Plato™ (Nucletron, an Elekta(More)
Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI) appears to be an efficient therapeutic modality provided that it uses strict selection criteria and a reliable and well-managed technique. The techniques that enable to deliver postoperative APBI are interstitial brachytherapy, endocavitary brachytherapy and external beam radiation therapy. Once an appropriate(More)
Brachytherapy consists in placing radioactive sources directly in contact with the tumoral bed. The type of source, its characteristics and its use will be adapted regarding the kind of treatment foreseen. Modern brachytherapy techniques employ remote afterloading technologies allowing better quality and security in the delivery of treatment. This(More)
