PURPOSE To evaluate the best strategy for treatment of sarcoma that occurs after radiation therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Records were retrospectively reviewed for 80 patients with a confirmed histologic diagnosis of sarcoma that occurred after radiation therapy performed during 1975-1995. The patients were treated for breast cancer (n = 33, 42%),(More)
PURPOSE Thymoma is a rare disease. The treatment of patients with invasive thymoma remains controversial. The prognosis of such patients is poor, even with the use of postoperative radiation therapy and chemotherapy. We retrospectively reviewed the outcome and prognostic factors in a series of 90 patients presenting with an invasive thymoma treated by(More)
Between 1979 and 1990, 149 patients with non-metastatic thymomas were treated in ten French cancer centers. Patients were staged according to the 'GETT' classification, derived from that of Masaoka. There were 13 stage I patients, 46 stage II, 58 stage III and 32 stage IVA. Gross total resections were performed in 63 cases, subtotal resections in 31 cases(More)
PURPOSE Induction chemotherapy has been proposed in the case of advanced laryngeal cancer in order to preserve laryngeal function in those patients who are complete responders. To clarify the treatment policies, a retrospective multicentric analysis of 116 patients with advanced carcinoma of the larynx treated by radical surgery and postoperative(More)

Two-thirds of the tumours were T3 and 60% of patients presented with a clinical node involvement. The rates of local failure were 8%, 18% and 13%, respectively, for(More)
The identification of factors associated with breast recurrence as first event (62 cases, 10%) following conservative surgery and radiation therapy are drawn out from a series++ of 618 mammary carcinomas of clinical size less than 40 mm, stage I and II (UICC), with a median follow up of 8 years. The most powerful predictive characteristic associated with(More)
