PURPOSE: Evaluation of postoperative fractionated local 3D-conformal radiotherapy (3DRT) of the resection cavity in brain metastases. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 2011 and 2016, 57 patients underwent resection of a single, previously untreated (37/57, 65%) or recurrent (20/57, 35%) brain metastasis (median maximal diameter 3.5 cm [1.1-6.5 cm]) followed by 3DRT. For definition of the gross tumor volume (GTV), the resection cavity was used and for the clinical target volume (CTV), margins of 1...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to determine the risk factors for brain metastasis (BM) and the prognostic factors for overall survival (OS) in patients with small cell lung cancer without prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Limited stage small cell lung cancer (LS-SCLC) patients achieving a complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) were enrolled into this study between January 2010 and December 2016. We retrospectively evaluated the influencing factors for time to BM and overall survival (OS)...

PURPOSE: To reinvestigate the functional recovery after combined treatment with surgery and postoperative irradiation of complete or impending pathologic fractures of long bones. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated the results of external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) carried out after 68 orthopedic stabilization procedures (femur, n = 55, 80.8%; humerus, n = 13, 19.2%) for actual or impending pathological fracture of long bone in 61 patients with skeletal metastases...

PURPOSE: Primary radiation therapy is a curative treatment option for prostate cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the detection of the dominant intraprostatic lesion (DIL) with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for radiotherapy treatment planning, the comparison with transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsies and the examination of the dose distribution in relation to the DIL location. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In all, 54 patients with treatment planning MRI for primary radiotherapy of prostate cancer from 03/2015 to 03/2017 at the Universitätsklinikum Würzburg were identified...

PURPOSE: Non-surgical treatment including stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) have been used practically as alternative modalities for unresectable or recurrent cholangiocarcinoma (CC). We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to examine the efficacy of SBRT for such patients. METHODS: Embase, PubMed, MEDLINE, and Cochrane library databases were searched systematically until October 2017. Primary endpoint was 1‑year local control (LC) rate; 1‑year overall survival (OS), response rates, and grade ≥3 toxicities were assessed as secondary endpoints...

PURPOSE: Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is an effective treatment for vestibular schwannoma (VS). Three-dimensional (3D) constructive interference in steady state (CISS) is the preferred magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequence for evaluating signal changes in the inner ear endolymph. Previous studies demonstrated a correlation between pretreatment cochlear signal intensity in 3D-CISS and posttherapeutic hearing outcomes. The purpose of our study was to compare 3D-CISS sequences before and after primary SRS of unilateral VSs to evaluate the effect of radiosurgery on the 3D-CISS signal intensities of cochlea and sacculus/utriculus...

PURPOSE: Spinal cord gliomas are rare, and there is no consensus on the optimal radiotherapy (RT) regimen. Herein, we investigated therapeutic outcomes in spinal cord gliomas to obtain clues for the optimal RT regimen. METHODS: We assessed 45 patients who received RT for primary spinal cord non-ependymoma gliomas between 2005 and 2017: 37 (82%) received postoperative RT, 6 (13%) underwent definitive RT without surgery, and 2 (5%) received salvage RT for recurrent tumors...

PURPOSE: To report our results of computed tomography-guided interstitial high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy (BRT) in the treatment of patients with recurrent inoperable glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 1995 and 2014, 135 patients were treated with interstitial HDR BRT for inoperable recurrent GBM located within previously irradiated volumes. Patient's median age was 57.1 years (14-82 years). All patients were pretreated with surgery, postoperative external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) and systemic chemotherapy (ChT)...

PURPOSE: To compare relative and absolute dose-volume parameters (DV) of the rectum and their clinical correlation with acute and late radiation proctitis (RP) after radiotherapy (RT) for prostate cancer (PCa). PATIENTS AND METHODS: 366 patients received RT for PCa. In total, 49.2% received definitive RT, 20.2% received postoperative RT and 30.6% received salvage RT for biochemical recurrence. In 77.9% of patients, RT was delivered to the prostate or prostate bed, and additional whole pelvic RT was performed in 22...

PURPOSE: Whole lung irradiation (WLI) is indicated for subgroups of patients with lung metastases from Wilms' tumor (nephroblastoma). WLI has traditionally been performed with an anterior/posterior field arrangement with poor potential for heart sparing; thus, new techniques are desirable to achieve a lower dose to the heart. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We utilized volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) for WLI with 18 Gy in a patient with metastatic nephroblastoma...

PURPOSE: The nutritional status of inpatients influences the therapeutic outcome. Malnutrition is a common comorbidity in oncological patients. Both radio- and radiochemotherapy may contribute to the additional deterioration of the nutritional status. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of specialized treatment of malnutrition as a clinical routine. METHODS: The nutritional status of inpatients was assessed by the Nutritional risk screening (NRS-2002) on the day of admission to the University Department of Radiation Oncology...

PURPOSE: The present study aims to evaluate both early and late toxicity profiles of patients receiving immediate postoperative radiotherapy (RT; adjuvant RT or additive RT) compared to salvage RT. METHODS: We evaluated 253 patients with prostate cancer treated with either immediate postoperative (adjuvant RT, n = 42; additive RT, n = 39) or salvage RT (n = 137). Thirty-five patients received salvage treatment but did not achieve a postoperative prostate specific antigen (PSA) level <0...

BACKGROUND: Health services research (HSR) is of increasing relevance to scientists, health-care providers, and clinicians. Complex population-based secondary data are a key source of information for analyses of health-care effects in radiation oncology. METHODS: In this short paper, we examine potential applications of secondary data focusing on statistics from the diagnosis-related groups (DRG). This data set incorporating all hospitalized cases in Germany is based on claims of reimbursements and is provided by the Research Data Centers (RDC) of the Federal Statistical Office and the Statistical Offices of the federal states...

PURPOSE: Specific information about radiation therapy in nonagenarians is limited. In order to shed more light on the feasibility of radiotherapy in this challenging subgroup, a retrospective study was performed. METHODS: The data of 93 consecutive patients receiving irradiation treatment at the Department of Radiation Oncology, Ordensklinikum Linz Barmherzige Schwestern between June 2005 and December 2016 were analyzed. Patient- and treatment-related factors were extracted from the patient records...

PURPOSE: Aim of the present analysis was to evaluate the movement and dose variability of the different lymph node levels of node-positive breast cancer patients during adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) with regional nodal irradiation (RNI) in deep-inspiration breath hold (DIBH). METHODS: Thirty-five consecutive node-positive breast cancer patients treated from October 2016 to February 2018 receiving postoperative RT of the breast or chest wall including RNI of the supra-/infraclavicular lymph node levels (corresponding to levels IV, III, Rotter LN (interpectoral), and some parts of level II) were analyzed...
