PURPOSE To evaluate efficacy and tolerance of external fractionated radiation therapy (RT) in the treatment of intracranial meningiomas. METHODS AND MATERIALS From January 1981 to September 1993, 91 patients with intracranial meningiomas were treated with fractionated RT. Indications were as follows: (a) incomplete surgical resection, 29 patients; (b)(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe delays in diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer in patients treated by radiotherapy from the first abnormal imaging to the first day of treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS Our retrospective single-center study included all patients treated for primary lung cancer in our center receiving radiotherapy alone or in association to(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term results of external fractionated radiation therapy (RT) in the treatment of intracranial meningiomas. PATIENTS AND METHODS From January 1981 to December 1996, 156 patients with intracranial meningiomas were treated with external fractionated RT. Median age was 57. Indications for radiation therapy were as follows: (1)(More)
Forty-seven patients with chromosome Philadelphia-positive (Ph1) chronic granulocytic leukaemia (CGL) in transformation underwent autologous transplantation of peripheral blood stem cells (ABSCT) collected at the original diagnosis before any treatment. They were treated with three consecutive strategies: single transplant (group I = 17 patients), double(More)
OBJECTIVES We assessed survival and compared clinical and pathological prognostic factors of women with invasive cervical cancer according to the age in order to define a cutoff point where screening should become useless. METHODS The survival of 308 women with invasive cervical cancer treated at Bordeaux University Hospital between 1976 and 1996 was(More)
High grade lung neuroendocrine carcinomas, like small and large cell neuroendocrine carcinomas, pose therapeutic problems. Most initially respond to chemotherapeutic agents, but early relapses are frequent and are resistant to the presently available treatments. Our study reports for the first time the development and evaluation of a test for detecting the(More)
Anatomical changes and tumor regression during thoracic radiotherapy may alter the treatment volumes. These modifications are not taken into account into set-up or motion margins used for treatment planning. Their dosimetric impact could be significant and a better understanding of the changes occurring during the 6 to 7 weeks of treatment could be useful(More)
Since recent treatment planning systems calculate volumetric dose distribution, an objective evaluation of potential toxicity in the main critical organs may be helpful in treatment optimization. Modeling the toxicity of radiotherapy must at least account for: (a) specific risks in every critical organ; (b) total dose and dose per fraction; (c) partial(More)
PURPOSE Prospective evaluation of a virtual simulation technique. PATIENTS AND METHODS From September 1993 to February 1997, 343 patients underwent radiation therapy using this technique. Treated sites were mostly: brain (132), rectum (59), lung (43), and prostate (28). A CT-scan was performed on a patient in treatment position. Twenty-five to 70 jointive(More)
PURPOSE Retrospective analysis of 17 patients with intracranial germ cell tumors treated in a multidisciplinary consultation at the Bordeaux University Hospital a and literature review. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventeen consecutive patients were treated from 1978 to 1995 for a primary intracranial germ cell tumor. Median age was 14 (range 3-29 years). There(More)
