Based on the basic data of all patients foreseen for a local hyperthermia in the participating centers the failure rate (of the Celsius TCS Hyperthermia System) and the complication rate (...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cisplatin, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Hyp...
The combination of radiation therapy or chemoradiation with Interstitial brachytherapy for advanced cervical cancer (pN+, FIGO-Stage II B - IV A is standard of therapy. The radio- and chem...
RATIONALE: Hyperthermia therapy kills tumor cells by heating them to several degrees above body temperature. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing...
To increase the efficacy of chemoradiation and decrease its toxicity in normal tissue, a new concept is proposed, local radiosensitizer delivery, which combines triggered release of a radiosensitizer ...
On-line adaptive hyperthermia treatment planning can be useful to suppress treatment limiting hot spots and improve tumor temperatures during locoregional hyperthermia. This requires adequate predicti...
The deleterious effect of hyperthermia on intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) has been studied, however the results are not completely conclusive and new studies are needed to elucidate clinical factors th...
Increasing evidences suggested that insufficient radiofrequency ablation (RFA) can paradoxically promote tumor invasion and metastatic processes, while the effects of moderate hyperthermia on cancer p...
We examined if physical characteristics could be used to predict cooling time during cold water immersion (CWI, 2°C) following exertional hyperthermia (rectal temperature ≥39.5°C) in a physically ...
The induction of local hyperthermia by either short radio waves or high-frequency sound waves.
The use of focused short radio waves to produce local hyperthermia in an injured person or diseased body area.
The use of focused, high-frequency sound waves to produce local hyperthermia in certain diseased or injured parts of the body or to destroy the diseased tissue.
A form of therapy consisting in the local or general use of cold. The selective destruction of tissue by extreme cold or freezing is CRYOSURGERY. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
A gas that condenses under slight pressure. Because of its low boiling point ethyl chloride sprayed on skin produces an intense cold by evaporation. Cold blocks nerve conduction. Ethyl chloride has been used in surgery but is primarily used to relieve local pain in sports medicine.
