Ionizing radiation may interfere with electric components of pacemakers or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators. The type, severity and extent of radiation damage to pacemakers, have previously been shown to depend on the total dose and dose rate. Over 300,000 new cancer cases are treated yearly in France, among which 60% are irradiated in the course of(More)
Breast cancer has a long natural history. Established and emerging biologic markers address overall risk but not necessarily timing of recurrence. 346 adjuvant naïve breast cancer cases from Guy’s Hospital with 23 years minimum follow-up and archival blocks were recut and reassessed for hormone-receptors (HR), HER2-receptor and grade. Disease-specific(More)
PURPOSE To retrospectively analyse female patients treated for urethral adenocarcinoma, modalities of treatment and long-term outcomes. PATIENTS Four cases of primary female urethral adenocarcinoma were treated in the departments of urology and radiation-oncology at Georges-Pompidou and Necker hospitals (France) over a 7-year period. RESULTS All of them(More)
Conventional cemented acetabular components are reported to have a high rate of failure when implanted into previously irradiated bone. We recommend the use of a cemented reconstruction with the addition of an acetabular reinforcement cross to improve fixation. We reviewed a cohort of 45 patients (49 hips) who had undergone irradiation of the pelvis and a(More)
GOALS Prospective evaluation of salivary gland preservation, overall survival and local recurrence-free survival after head and neck cancer treated by helical tomotherapy (HT). MATERIAL AND METHODS From March 2007 to February 2009, 30 patients with head and neck cancer were treated by HT. The salivary excretion fraction (SEF) was assessed by technetium(More)
OBJECTIVE Quantitative computerized tomography (QCT), a scanning method routinely used to classify tissues based on their radio density, was used to detect choroidal calcification. DESIGN Case reports. PARTICIPANTS Two patients with known or suspected choroidal calcium-choroidal osteoma (CO) and pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) and five normal control(More)
