OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of SOD applied topically in oncologic patients affected by acute radiodermatitis. MATERIALS AND METHOD This study includes 57 patients who showed a dermatitis grade 2 or superior; they were administered SOD ointment b.i.d. (40 mg, weekly) and follow-up continued for 12 weeks. RESULTS At(More)
Data in the literature support the existence of a state of limited metastases or oligometastases. Favorable outcomes have been observed in selected patients with such oligometastases that are treated with local ablative therapies, which include surgical extirpation, stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), and radiofrequency ablation. The role of SBRT in(More)
INTRODUCTION The essential issue in conservative treatment is the quality in breast preservation. When risk factors for local relapse exist, a tumour bed boost is required, but the boost choice remains controversial. Prospectively, we studied long-term toxicity, cosmetic outcome and prognostic factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS After conservative treatment,(More)
INTRODUCTION Ninety percent of oesophageal cancers are locally advanced at diagnosis, and treatment yields discouraging results. High dose rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT) permits an increment of local doses without a significant increment of toxicity. The goal of our study is to compare different HDR-BT fractions and assess global survival (GS) and(More)
Granulocytic sarcoma (GS), an uncommon solid extramedullary tumour, should be considered even in the absence of leukaemia, as delay in diagnosis and treatment worsens the prognosis. We present a GS (single humeral bone lesion) in a non-leukaemia patient, treated with intensive AML (Acute Myeloid Leukaemia) chemotherapy and sequential radiotherapy, in(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Conservative treatment represents the current therapy for early-stage breast cancer. When risk factors for local relapse exist, a tumour bed boost is required. Retrospectively, we evaluated the prognostic factors influencing local recurrence (LR), overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS). MATERIAL AND METHODS After(More)
INTRODUCTION The dose administered to the tumour bed is a risk-factor for local recurrence in localised breast cancer following breast-conserving surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS All patients (n=94) received 50 Gy external beam radiotherapy and one application of 700 cGy at 85% isodose with high dose rate brachytherapy. RESULTS Of the cases, 84% were(More)
