PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to analyze results of adjuvant stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) targeted at resection cavities of brain metastases without whole-brain irradiation (WBI). METHODS AND MATERIALS Patients who underwent SRS to the tumor bed, deferring WBI after resection of a brain metastasis, were retrospectively identified. RESULTS(More)
OBJECTIVE The restricted radiation tolerance of the anterior visual pathways represents a unique challenge for ablating adjacent lesions with single-session radiosurgery. Although preliminary studies have recently demonstrated that multisession radiosurgery for selected perioptic tumors is both safe and effective, the number of patients in these clinical(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of CyberKnife (Accuray, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA) stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for patients with brain metastases of malignant melanoma and renal cell carcinoma. METHODS We conducted a retrospective review of all patients treated by image-guided radiosurgery at our institution between March 1999 and December 2005.(More)
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) have been recognized as an alternative to surgery for small to medium sized vestibular schwannoma (VS). This study analysed and compared the outcomes of VS treated with the first Thailand installation of a dedicated Linac-based stereotactic radiation machine using(More)
Stereotactic radiation technique including single fraction radiosurgery and conventional fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy is widely reported as an effective treatment of pituitary adenomas. Because of the restricted radiation tolerance dose of the optic pathway, single fraction radiosurgery has been accepted for small tumor located far away from the(More)
Introduction. Use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in cancer patients is increasingly acceptable worldwide, but most of the studies were surveyed from developed countries. In this study, we evaluated the first and large cohort of cancer patients with CAM use in Thailand. Materials and Methods. A self-administered questionnaire was completed(More)
In recent years the use of stereotactic radiation for vestibular schwannomas has increased worldwide. However, malignant transformation associated with radiation, although uncommon, has been reported in recent publications. We present a case of the 34 year-old female who had left vestibular schwannoma and who underwent surgery and postoperative stereotactic(More)
OBJECTIVE Provide the effectiveness of treatment protocol, radiotherapy plan, technique, and early clinical results of inoperable primary non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in patients who received CyberKnife treatment at Ramathibodi Hospital. MATERIAL AND METHOD Six cases of inoperable primary NSCLC patients were evaluated for tumor response after having(More)
OBJECTIVE To report technique and experience of high-dose-rate (HDR) interstitial brachytherapy in the treatment of cervical carcinoma and other gynecologic malignancies. MATERIAL AND METHOD Between April 2003 and October 2004, ten patients (7-cervical carcinoma, 3-vaginal stump carcinoma) were treated with interstitial implant. Indications for implant(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the acute effects of radiotherapy after mastectomy and immediate transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap reconstruction in breast cancer patients treated at Ramathibodi Hospital. MATERIAL AND METHOD Between January 2004 and March 2005, ten breast cancer patients (age 32-51 years) were treated with postoperative(More)
