Salvage surgery after chemo- or chemoradiotherapy for initially unresectable lung carcinoma.

Summary of "Salvage surgery after chemo- or chemoradiotherapy for initially unresectable lung carcinoma."

Salvage surgery is used for resection of loco-regionally recurrent or re-growing lesions after treatment for unresectable non-small cell lung cancer. It is also used to resect lesions that have regressed following treatment and that had not initially been indicated for resection. Relationships between salvage surgery, safety and prognosis, however, have remained unclear.

Salvage esophagectomy for initially unresectable locally advanced T4 esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

Definitive chemoradiotherapy (dCRT) for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is a potentially curative treatment modality, even for patients with unresectable T4 tumors. For patients who fail dCR...

Brief report: Three-year overall survival with durvalumab after chemoradiotherapy in Stage III NSCLC - Update from PACIFIC.

Chemoradiotherapy with Concurrent Regional Arterial Chemotherapy for Locally Bulky Unresectable Rectal Cancer: A Case Series.

We evaluated the feasibility and efficacy of chemoradiotherapy with concurrent regional arterial chemotherapy (CRT/RAC) for locally bulky unresectable rectal cancer (LBURC).

High dose radiation therapy based on normal tissue constraints with concurrent chemotherapy achieves promising survival of patients with unresectable stage III non-small cell lung cancer.

We aimed to investigate the potential of individual isotoxic dose escalation based on normal tissue constraints (NTC), hypothesizing that high dose radiation therapy would be superior to standard-dose...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The treatment of a disease or condition by several different means simultaneously or sequentially. Chemoimmunotherapy, RADIOIMMUNOTHERAPY, chemoradiotherapy, cryochemotherapy, and SALVAGE THERAPY are seen most frequently, but their combinations with each other and surgery are also used.

An alternative to amputation in patients with neoplasms, ischemia, fractures, and other limb-threatening conditions. Generally, sophisticated surgical procedures such as vascular surgery and reconstruction are used to salvage diseased limbs.

A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.

Combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery. It is commonly used in the therapy of cancer.

Surgery performed on the lung.
