Low Karnofsky performance status (KPS) and elevated lactate dehydrogenases (LDHs) as a surrogate marker for tumor load and cell turnover may depict patients with a very short life expectancy. To validate this finding and compare it to other indices, namely, the recursive partitioning analysis (RPA) and diagnosis-specific graded prognostic assessment(More)
Since the discovery and the fi rst therapeutic use of x-rays in 1895, radiation-induced skin reactions are well known side effects of radiotherapy (RT). Aetiological background is the radiation-induced damage to the germinative cells of the epidermis and its appendages. Due to the increasing use of established and recently developed systemic agents(More)
PURPOSE The cure rate of stage I seminoma patients is close to 100% and so the recent focus of clinical research has shifted onto the prevention of treatment-related complications. We assessed long-term cardiovascular complications and identified risk factors for cardiovascular events (CVEs) in stage I seminoma patients. METHODS This retrospective cohort(More)
The purpose of our investigation was to develop a novel and state of the art digital skin imaging method capable for remote monitoring and objective assessment of Radiation Induced Dermatitis (RID). Therefore, radiation therapy related side effects were assessed by medical experts according to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) grade of(More)
PURPOSE To determine prognostic factors that allow the selection of melanoma patients with advanced intra- and extracerebral metastatic disease for palliative whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) or best supportive care. METHODS AND MATERIALS This was a retrospective study of 87 patients who underwent palliative WBRT between 1988 and 2009 for progressive(More)
This study aimed to quantify the benefit of adjuvant radiotherapy (AXRT) for local control, distant metastasis, and long-term survival outcomes in patients with localized soft tissue sarcoma (STS). This single-center retrospective observational study enrolled 433 STS patients who underwent surgery with curative intent. An inverse probability of(More)
