BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE 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.(More)
BACKGROUND 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(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)
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)
BACKGROUND 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(More)
PURPOSE The human liver is known to be a relatively radiosensitive organ that develops clinically relevant late radiation hepatitis subsequent to whole liver treatment with total doses above 30 Gy in conventional fractionation. Experimental data, as well as clinical series, have demonstrated that hyperthermia of solid tumors in addition to radiotherapy(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)
BACKGROUND Current studies on salvage radiotherapy (sRT) investigate timing, dose-escalation and anti-hormonal treatment (ADT) for recurrent prostate cancer. These approaches could either be limited by radiation-related susceptibility of the anastomosis or by suspected side-effects of long-term ADT. A phase II protocol was developed to investigate the(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.
