To describe a case of radiation-induced uterine carcinosarcoma 6 years after a cervical squamous cell carcinoma treatment, which imposed some diagnostic and management challenges.
This article was published in the following journal.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of prophylactic extended-field radiation therapy (RT) for cervical cancer patients treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT).
Cervical cancer may recur after concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT), even in patients with metabolic complete response (mCR) on post-CCRT F-FDG PET. We retrospectively analyzed the value of metabolic ...
Final results of a randomized phase III trial of induction chemotherapy followed by concurrent chemoradiotherapy versus concurrent chemoradiotherapy alone in patients with stage IVA and IVB nasopharyngeal carcinoma-Taiwan Cooperative Oncology Group (TCOG) 1303 Study.
Concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) is superior to radiotherapy alone for treating locoregionally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Whether adding induction chemotherapy (IC) further improves t...
The occurrence of brain metastasis (BM) has increased due to improved overall survival (OS) in uterine cervical cancer. However, research about prognostic factors and therapeutic guidelines for BM in ...
To review the current status of, and labor expended for (in terms of time required), intracavitary brachytherapy (ICBT) in definitive radiotherapy/chemoradiotherapy for cervical cancer patients, two n...
This is a Phase II study in patients with advanced and/refractory cervical cancer, endometrial carcinoma or uterine sarcoma. Patients will be treated with an immunomodulatory cocktail (Vi...
The purpose of this phase II trial is to determine the feasibility and efficacy of nimotuzumab injection combined with concurrent chemoradiotherapy for initially inoperable locally advance...
Cervical cancer with pelvic or para-aortic node involvement has a poor prognosis. Despite low-quality data, the routine practice to treat these patients is radiation with concurrent cispla...
The purpose of this study is to find out how effectively cervix cancer is controlled when radiation is combined with low-dose chemotherapy (Taxotere) . The use of low-dose Taxotere, once...
To assess the efficacy and safety of postoperative concurrent chemoradiotherapy combined with recombinant human endostatin (Endostar) in patients with high-risk early stage cervical cancer...
Incompetent UTERINE CERVIX is usually diagnosed in the second trimester of PREGNANCY. It is characterized by passive painless cervical dilation in the absence of UTERINE CONTRACTION; BLEEDING; INFECTION; and sometimes with the amniotic sac (AMNIOTIC MEMBRANE) bulging through the partially dilated cervix. Left untreated, this condition may lead to premature pregnancy loss, such as HABITUAL ABORTION.
Abnormal development of immature squamous EPITHELIAL CELLS of the UTERINE CERVIX, a term used to describe premalignant cytological changes in the cervical EPITHELIUM. These atypical cells do not penetrate the epithelial BASEMENT MEMBRANE.
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
A change in the CERVIX UTERI with respect to its readiness to relax. The cervix normally becomes softer, more flexible, more distensible, and shorter in the final weeks of PREGNANCY. These cervical changes can also be chemically induced (LABOR, INDUCED).
Tumors or cancer of the UTERINE CERVIX.
There are three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. Basal cell carcinoma Basal cell carcinoma, or BCC, is a cancer of the basal cells at the bottom of the epidermis. It’s very common ...
