PURPOSE This retrospective analysis investigated the effectiveness and side-effects of combined hyperthermia and radiation therapy in locally recurrent breast cancer after primary modified radical mastectomy. The aim of the thermoradiotherapy was to reduce the substantial risk of symptomatic chest wall disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between May(More)
A guideline is provided for the implementation of regional deep hyperthermia treatments under strict rules of quality assurance. The objective is to guarantee a comparable and comprehensible method in the treatment and scientific analysis of hyperthermia. The guideline describes regional deep hyperthermia (RHT) and MR-controlled partial body hyperthermia(More)
These guidelines contain recommendations for the implementation of quality-assured hyperthermia treatments. The objective is to guarantee an internationally comparable and easily understandable method for hyperthermia treatment and for the subsequent scientific analysis of the treatment results. The guidelines describe “regional deep hyperthermia” (RHT) and(More)
Multimodality treatment approaches provide high local control and satisfying overall survival (OS) for children with localized bladder and/or prostate rhabdomyosarcoma (BP-RMS). However, current strategies including surgery and conventional radiotherapy are compromised by high rates of long-term genitourinary adverse effects. Therefore, a planning study(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Evaluation of the efficacy of combined hyperthermia and radiotherapy (TRT) in high-risk breast cancer patients with microscopic involved margins (R1) after mastectomy or with resected locoregional, early recurrence with close margins or R1-resection. Main endpoint was local tumour control (LC); secondary endpoints were overall(More)
Radical surgery is the treatment of first choice for retroperitoneal sarcoma. However, locoregional relapse is frequently observed leading to death in the majority of patients. The role of radiotherapy is not well defined in the management of retroperitoneal sarcoma. Yet, there is evidence that adjuvant irradiation does improve local tumor control. Material(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the influence of regional hyperthermia on rates of complete pathological response (pCR) and sphincter-sparing surgery in the context of an up-to-date radiochemotherapy protocol for locally advanced rectal cancer. METHODS Between 2007 and 2010, 106 patients with locally advanced cancer of the middle and lower rectum were admitted to(More)
BACKGROUND Interstitial brachytherapy with I-125 seeds can be used for successful treatment of early stage prostate cancer. There is presented the technique of permanent transperineal implantation of I-125 seeds with intraoperative treatment planning which is suited for the treatment of prostate cancer up to the clinical stage of T2a. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
Durch interstitielle Brachytherapie mit Jod-125-Seeds kann das lokal begrenzte Prostatakarzinom erfolgreich therapiert werden. Es wird die Technik der transperinealen Permanentimplantation von Jod-125-Seeds mit intraoperativer Bestrahlungsplanung vorgestellt, die für eine Therapie des Prostatakarzinoms bis zum Studium T2a geeignet ist. Material und Methode:(More)
BACKGROUND Early stage prostate cancer can be treated successfully by interstitial brachytherapy with 125-iodine seeds. A quality-assurance programme is presented that was designed for this purpose for internal clinical use. Furthermore the requirements of the new German Ordinance Governing Radiation Protection (StrlSchV) that came into force on August 1,(More)
