Stereotactic Radiosurgery Using CyberKnife in Treating Women With Advanced or Recurrent Gynecological Malignancies

2014-07-23 21:09:56 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Stereotactic radiosurgery can send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue.

PURPOSE: This clinical trial studies stereotactic radiosurgery using CyberKnife works in treating women with advanced or recurrent gynecological malignancies.

Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. The primary goal of this study is to estimate the rate of grade 3 or higher acute toxicities observed during a 6 month period following CyberKnife radiosurgery for gynecologic cancers.

II. To evaluate clinical response to radio-surgery for gynecologic tumors. III. To assess general and site specific quality of life (using SF-12, FACT-En, FACT-O, FACT-Cx or FACT-V) and to evaluate patient's level of pain.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. As a secondary objective, toxicities during the 2 years following CyberKnife radiosurgery will also be described.

OUTLINE:

Patients undergo 3 fractions of CyberKnife stereotactic radiosurgery.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 1, 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Diseases involving the FALLOPIAN TUBES including neoplasms (FALLOPIAN TUBE NEOPLASMS); SALPINGITIS; tubo-ovarian abscess; and blockage.

A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.

Methods for assessing the patency of the fallopian tubes.

Benign or malignant neoplasms of the FALLOPIAN TUBES. They are uncommon. If they develop, they may be located in the wall or within the lumen as a growth attached to the wall by a stalk.

A measurement index derived from a modification of standard life-table procedures and designed to take account of the quality as well as the duration of survival. This index can be used in assessing the outcome of health care procedures or services. (BIOETHICS Thesaurus, 1994)
