Favorable preservation of erectile function after prostate brachytherapy for localized prostate cancer.

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).

Results of a Prospective Dose Escalation Study of Linear Accelerator-Based Virtual Brachytherapy (BOOSTER) for Prostate Cancer; Virtual HDR Brachytherapy for Prostate Cancer.

To demonstrate feasibility and toxicity of linear accelerator-based stereotactic radiation therapy boost (SBRT) for prostate cancer, mimicking a high-dose-rate brachytherapy boost.

A Phase 2 Randomized Pilot Study Comparing High-Dose-Rate Brachytherapy and Low-Dose-Rate Brachytherapy as Monotherapy in Localized Prostate Cancer.

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...

Analysis of Spatial Dose-Volume Relationships and Decline in Sexual Function Following Permanent Brachytherapy for Prostate Cancer.

To explore relationships between dose to periprostatic anatomic structures and erectile dysfunction (ED) outcomes in an institutional cohort treated with prostate brachytherapy.

Post-implant dosimetry of permanent prostate brachytherapy: comparison of MRI-only and CT-MRI fusion based workflows.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
