The objective of this overview was to critically evaluate the effect of polyethylene glycol (PEG)-based hydrogel spacers during prostate brachytherapy with regard to dosimetric and clinical benefits, as well as procedure-related toxicity.
This article was published in the following journal.
We analyzed the rate of preserved potency after prostate brachytherapy (PB) with radioactive seeds and the impact of patient comorbidities on post-PB erectile dysfunction (ED).
To demonstrate feasibility and toxicity of linear accelerator-based stereotactic radiation therapy boost (SBRT) for prostate cancer, mimicking a high-dose-rate brachytherapy boost.
To compare health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of high-dose-rate brachytherapy (HDRB) versus low dose-rate brachytherapy (LDRB) for localized prostate cancer in a multi-institutional phase 2 random...
To explore relationships between dose to periprostatic anatomic structures and erectile dysfunction (ED) outcomes in an institutional cohort treated with prostate brachytherapy.
The current MRI-CT fusion-based workflow for post-implant dosimetry of Low-Dose-Rate (LDR) prostate brachytherapy takes advantage of the superior soft tissue contrast of MRI but still relies on CT for...
Study evaluates the efficacy and tolerability of low volume preparations compared with conventional 4L polyethylene glycol prior to colonoscopy
Linaclotide based bowel cleansing regimen might be helpful to improve bowel cleansing quality before colonoscopy.
The hypothesis is that starting a bowel regimen with Polyethylene Glycol prior to robotic assisted sacrocolpopexy will decrease time to first bowel movement after surgery. The experimental...
This non-interventional, observational study investigates the efficacy, safety and usability of methoxy polyethylene glycol epoetin beta in participants on peritoneal dialysis. Participant...
All patients presenting to the emergency department of Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences with known cirrhosis and hepatic encephalopathy with grade II will be included in the study. ...
A network of cross-linked hydrophilic macromolecules used in biomedical applications fabricated by photopolymerization of polyethylene glycol dimethacrylate. Its general formulae is C3H5C(O)(OCH2CH2)nOC(O)C3H5 where n denotes a number of average polyglycol (OCH2CH2) repeats.
Ophthalmic solutions that include LUBRICANTS and WETTING AGENTS such as POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL; HYPROMELLOSE; GLYCEROL; PROPYLENE GLYCOL. They are used to treat conditions caused by deficient tear production such as DRY EYE SYNDROME.
A vinyl polymer made from ethylene. It can be branched or linear. Branched or low-density polyethylene is tough and pliable but not to the same degree as linear polyethylene. Linear or high-density polyethylene has a greater hardness and tensile strength. Polyethylene is used in a variety of products, including implants and prostheses.
Non-ionic surfactant of the polyethylene glycol family. It is used as a solubilizer and emulsifying agent in foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals, often as an ointment base, and also as a research tool.
A copolymer of polyethylene and polypropylene ether glycol. It is a non-ionic polyol surface-active agent used medically as a fecal softener and in cattle for prevention of bloat.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
An enlarged prostate (benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)) is common in men after the age of about 50. Having an enlarged prostate does not mean you have cancer. In some cases, an enlarged prostate can cause the ...
