BACKGROUND Although the nodal ratio (NR) has been recognized as a prognostic factor in breast cancer, its clinical implication in patients with 1-3 positive nodes (N1) remains unclear. Here, we evaluated the prognostic value of the NR and identified other clinico-pathologic variables associated with poor prognosis in these patients. METHODS We analyzed(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective was to analyze the outcomes of the patients, who received salvage radiotherapy for incidentally discovered cervical cancer following simple hysterectomy, and to identify the influence of intracavitary radiotherapy on treatment outcomes. METHODS Data from 117 patients with occult cervical cancer who underwent simple hysterectomy(More)
PURPOSE In the present study, we aimed to evaluate the initial tumor location as a prognostic factor in breast cancer patients treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC). METHODS Between March 2002 and January 2007, a total of 179 patients with stage II/III breast cancer underwent NAC followed by breast surgery. Using physical and radiologic findings,(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was to evaluate the treatment outcomes and prognostic factors of patients treated with salvage radiotherapy for the treatment of isolated lymph node recurrence of cervical cancer. METHODS Between 1990 and 2009, 22 cervical cancer patients with lymph node recurrence who had previously undergone radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymph(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the radial displacement of clinical target volume in the patients with node negative head and neck (H&N) cancer and to quantify the relative positional changes compared to that of normal healthy volunteers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three node-negative H&N cancer patients and five healthy volunteers were enrolled in this study. For setup(More)
