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 To compare compliance with and efficacy of intravenous (IV) and subcutaneous (SC) amifostine for the treatment of patients undergoing radiotherapy for head and neck cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with newly diagnosed squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck, who were eligible for radiotherapy and who were not receiving concurrent(More)
Between 06.86 and 11.89, 88 medulloblastoma or primitive neuroectodermic tumour (PNET) localised in the posterior fossa have been included in the M7 multicentric protocol, 82 received the totality of the radiotherapy treatment and were evaluable for this study. Twenty-two of these 82 patients relapsed: their radiotherapy treatment is analysed in the present(More)
Ethmoid adenocarcinoma is a rare tumour of the ethmoidal sinuses. The authors report on the clinical features, treatment and follow-up results in 19 cases. Risk factors were those regularly encountered. Delay to diagnosis was long due to the nonspecific clinical features and course. Nasal endoscopy was essential for follow-up. Computed tomography and(More)

Radiation-induced bile duct strictures are rare since bile ducts are considered to be resistant in radiation injury. We report a case of bile duct stenosis where evidence is presented that bile duct stricture was the result of radiation injury and which illustrates the major contribution of magnetic res-onance cholangiography in biliary tract disease(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of standard fractionated radiation therapy on the kinetic parameters of colorectal adenocarcinomas. METHODS The study of tumour kinetics involved in vivo injection of bromodeoxyuridine. Endoscopic biopsies were obtained from the tumour and analysed with flow cytometry. This procedure(More)
