Eight-MHz radiofrequency hyperthermia (H) using Thermotron-RF8, and its combination with irradiation (RH), anticancer drugs (CH) or anticancer drugs plus irradiation (CRH), were carried out for a total of 93 urological malignancies: 19 cases of renal cancer, 3 of renal pelvic cancer, 4 of ureteral cancer 39 of bladder cancer, 8 of prostatic cancer, 14 of metastatic lesion of urological cancers and 6 of other urological cancers. All had failed in previous treatments, or had not undergone surgery… Expand

The review underscores the limited nature of the evidence; definitive conclusions are elusive, however, the promising results of RHT in the setting of intravesical chemotherapy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy show a trend towards legitimate efficacy. Expand
Hyperthermia or Thermotherapy of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: What Is the Difference?
Local hyperthermia of BPH is praised as an effective and side-effect-free alternative therapy and thus superior to the well-known operative techniques. Expand
