Evidence that Deep Inspiration Breath Hold (DIBH) can reduce cardiac dose during left-sided breast radiation therapy (RT) has led to widespread uptake of this technology. There is a paucity of publish...
We report the evolution of the largest, contemporary, single-institution experience with this complex procedure to highlight the value of a cross-discipline, team-based approach.
To determine rates of adverse events (AEs) related to deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery or implanted devices from a large series from a single institution. Sound comparisons with the literature req...
Aim of the present analysis was to evaluate the movement and dose variability of the different lymph node levels of node-positive breast cancer patients during adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) with regiona...
Deep inspiration breath hold (DIBH) for radiotherapy of left-sided breast cancer patients can effectively move the heart away from the target and reduce the heart dose compared to treatments in free b...
The OsmohalerTM is a registered device in Australia. It is used to deliver a dry powder a commercial preparation of mannitol registered as AridolTM to test if a person has irritable airwa...
This study aims to discover more about radiation techniques for people treated for left-sided breast cancer that minimizes exposure to the heart, as noted by mean heart dose.
The standard treatment for breast cancer is surgery followed by adjuvant breast radiation therapy in most cases. For left sided breast cancers, the heart dose delivered by the radiation tr...
Since 1996 proton therapy has been applied very successfully at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland to irradiate deep-seated, stationary tumors. In order to treat tumors within an o...
PEP (positive expiratory pressure) is routinely given to patients after surgery in order to improve lung function. There is, however, no evidence of effect on lung function, postoperative ...
The outer margins of the thorax containing SKIN, deep FASCIA; THORACIC VERTEBRAE; RIBS; STERNUM; and MUSCLES.
The outer margins of the ABDOMEN, extending from the osteocartilaginous thoracic cage to the PELVIS. Though its major part is muscular, the abdominal wall consists of at least seven layers: the SKIN, subcutaneous fat, deep FASCIA; ABDOMINAL MUSCLES, transversalis fascia, extraperitoneal fat, and the parietal PERITONEUM.
Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.
The part of brain that lies behind the BRAIN STEM in the posterior base of skull (CRANIAL FOSSA, POSTERIOR). It is also known as the "little brain" with convolutions similar to those of CEREBRAL CORTEX, inner white matter, and deep cerebellar nuclei. Its function is to coordinate voluntary movements, maintain balance, and learn motor skills.
DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS of an upper extremity vein (e.g., AXILLARY VEIN; SUBCLAVIAN VEIN; and JUGULAR VEINS). It is associated with mechanical factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Primary) secondary to other anatomic factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Secondary). Symptoms may include sudden onset of pain, warmth, redness, blueness, and swelling in the arm.
