PURPOSE In this study we retrospectively analyzed local control, survival rate and late cosmetic results of women with early breast cancer receiving breast conserving therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS All patients (1984 through 1992) of the Department of Radio-Oncology (University of Heidelberg), who received breast conserving therapy consisting of(More)
102 patients with prospectively radioresistant malignant tumours of the head and neck area were treated by a combination of hyperthermia and radiotherapy. 92 patients who received a sufficient dose were analysed. 71 of them (77%) developed an improvement of the disease, in 54 cases (59%) a complete remission was achieved. Local recurrences occurred in only(More)
PURPOSE Prognosis in patients with resected rectal carcinomas is correlated to local tumor control. Percutaneous (EBRT) and intraoperative boost irradiation (IORT) can improve local control. The aim of this study was to analyse the role of locally restricted dose escalation and the possibility to integrate IORT in a multi-modality adjuvant treatment(More)

During the period from 1968 through 1984, 197 patients with advanced carcinomas of the oral cavity have been irradiated. The authors investigate the influence of a standardized chemotherapy as initial therapy measure on the subsequent radiotherapy and the therapy results. Whereas 4.2% of patients were submitted to this treatment between 1968 and 1975, 64.5%(More)
Basing on the experience with 558 patients suffering from tumours or suspicious lesions in the head and neck region, sonographic pointers that have been inadequately noted so far, are pointed out to improve diagnosis, follow-up, and post-therapeutic care. Among the possibilities offered by sonography are: to confirm or exclude bony involvement of the(More)
Within the period from 1971 through 1984, 185 patients with advanced oropharynx carcinomas were irradiated during primary therapy. The influence of a standardized chemotherapy (Heidelberg scheme) as initial therapeutic measure is investigated. Whereas 10% of the patients were treated in this way from 1971 through 1977, this part was 78% from 1978 through(More)
Treatment results after radiotherapy in combination with surgery, hyperthermia and cytotoxic drugs are reported from literature. Own results are presented. Sequential radiochemotherapy does not improve 5-year-survival. Synchronous administration of radiotherapy and chemotherapy is recommended for randomized studies. Drugs that are more effective but less(More)
