PURPOSE To study the feasibility and safety of stent-supported angioplasty in the treatment of atherosclerotic stenoses of the extracranial carotid arteries. METHODS Carotid angioplasty was attempted in 174 arteries (163 patients: 126 males; mean age: 71 +/- 10 years, range 47 to 93). Mean lesion length was 15.1 +/- 4.1 mm, and mean percent stenosis was(More)
PURPOSE Trans-abdominal ultrasonography (US) is capable of determining size, shape, thickness, and diameter of uterus, cervix and disease at cervix or parametria. To assess the potential value of US for image-guided cervical cancer brachytherapy, we compared US-findings relevant for brachytherapy to the corresponding findings obtained from MR imaging. (More)
Previous studies have proved that as the volume of the drug solution instilled into the eye is decreased, the fraction of the dose absorbed into the ocular tissue is increased and the adverse drug reactions lowered. The present study investigated the acute effects of different drop volumes (10 microliters, 20 microliters, 40 microliters, and 80 microliters)(More)
One hundred and fifty-one patients aged between 3 and 70 years with early stage unfavorable Hodgkin lymphoma were included. Patients received 4-6 cycles of ABVD (doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine and dacarbazine) chemotherapy and involved field radiation therapy (IFRT). The most common histology was mixed cellularity (43%). The majority had stage IIAX(More)
Ewing sarcoma (ES) of the jaw bones comprises a small fraction of ES at all sites. Due to their rarity, a specific policy for local treatment is lacking. The aim of this study was to evaluate the local therapy for ES and recommend measures to individualize treatment options. Patients with primary non-metastatic ES of the jaw bones treated between August(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to determine the impact of negative but close resection margins on local recurrence in children with extraskeletal Ewing sarcoma (EES). METHOD We reviewed records of 32 patients with EES treated between March 2005 and March 2013. All patients except one underwent surgical excision either upfront or after induction(More)
OBJECTIVE The objectives are to report the dosimetric analysis, preliminary clinical outcome, and comparison with published data of 3-dimensional magnetic resonance-based high dose rate brachytherapy (BT) in cervical cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS The data set of 24 patients with cervical cancer treated with high dose-rate brachytherapy applications was(More)
Aim: Desmoid tumors (Fibromatosis) are slow growing, locally invasive tumors with a propensity to recur despite wide excision. Data on the use of systemic therapy are sparse. Metronomic Therapy (MT) is a multi-targeted therapy with anti-angiogenic, immunomodulatory and tumor dormancy effects. This retrospective audit aims to study the efficacy, safety and(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to evaluate the role of adaptive radiation therapy for children receiving curative radiation therapy to the head and neck region. METHODS AND MATERIALS Ten children receiving definitive, conformal radiation therapy to the head and neck region were prospectively evaluated for anatomic changes during the course of radiation(More)
