PURPOSE: Brachytherapy is a well-known treatment in the management of skin tumors. For facial or scalp lesions, applicators have been developed to deliver non-invasive treatment. We present cases treated with customized applicators with high dose rate system. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients with poor performance status treated for malignant skin lesions of the scalp or the facial skin between 2011 and 2014 were studied. Afterloading devices were chosen between Freiburg(®) Flap, silicone-mold or wax applicators...

INTRODUCTION: Cases of radiation recall may be experienced by radiotherapy patients, which are named as radiodermitis. To gradate it the RTOG (Radiation Therapy Oncology Group) scale is the most used. Due to the complexity on the management of radiotherapy, a protocol based on the evidence is stablished to prevent and treat it. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Bibliographic revision of main data bases from last six years. RESULTS: 14 different studies which have the criteria for their inclusion are selected...

Calcinosis cutis is a chronic calcium-mediated disease that causes significant morbidity. Multiple treatments have been tried, with varying results; indeed, to date, no standard treatment has been generally accepted. Sodium metabisulfite is an inorganic compound that, when it reacts with oxygen, becomes sodium sulfate, a metabolite of sodium thiosulfate that has a similar ability to inhibit calcium oxalate agglomeration. Four women diagnosed with calcinosis cutis, secondary to dermatomyositis, systemic sclerosis and radiodermatitis after breast cancer, were evaluated for their response to topical 25% sodium metabisulfite...

UNLABELLED: This was a phase II study of capecitabine in substitution of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in the chemoradiotherapy regimen for patients with localized squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal. BACKGROUND: Combined chemoradiation with infusional 5-FU and mitomycin is the standard treatment for localized squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the anal canal. Capecitabine is an oral fluoropirimidine that has been shown to be equally effective to 5-FU in many solid tumors...

Prostate artery embolization (PAE) is a technically demanding new treatment option for benign prostatic hyperplasia. We present a case of radiation-induced dermitis in a 63-year-old patient after a technically successful PAE, due to high radiation exposure (KAP: 8,023,949 mGy cm(2)) and long fluoroscopy time (72 min). Anatomical and technical aspects are discussed, as well as recommendations to decrease radiation exposure in these procedures.

AIM: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the ability of a topical phytotherapic product (Capilen® cream) to limit acute radiodermitis and delay the use of corticosteroids in patients with breast cancer (BC). METHODS: From January 2012 to August 2012, 30 consecutive patients, undergoing radiotherapy with adjuvant intent, were invited to use Capilen® cream two times daily two weeks before and during radiotherapy. An historical group was used as an external control...

Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women. One in ten women must face breast cancer during her life. Radiotherapy is an essential part of the treatment. 87% of patient undergoing Radiotherapy will experience radiodermitis. The care during the treatment is part of the daily practice of the nursing staff In the nursing consultation nurses give to the patient self-care recommendations. It's important that the patient follows these recommendations given by the nurse in order to prevent the appearance of the possible side effects...

AIM: The versatility and effectiveness of the latissimus dorsi flap as salvage in complicated heterologous reconstructions, especially with regards to radiotherapy, is examined in this retrospective review of our 10-year experience. METHOD: Twenty-eight patients with complicated heterologous reconstruction were divided into three groups: (1) 15 patients with mastectomy and immediately expander reconstruction and radiation; (2) 9 patients with previous QUART, salvage mastectomy and immediate expander reconstruction; (3) 4 patients with radical mastectomy without radiation...

BACKGROUND: Many studies have shown gemcitabine and cisplatin are radiosensitizers. Concurrent chemoradiation seems to be an efficient approach for treatment of advanced head and neck cancer (HNC), but toxicity is significant. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate safety and explore efficacy of alternating chemotherapy with gemcitabine and cisplatin concurrent with radiotherapy in patients with advanced non-metastatic HNC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-eight patients diagnosed with advanced Squamous Cell Carcinomas of the Head and Neck (SCCHN) in stages III (28%), IVa (36%), and IVb (36%) were treated with gemcitabine: 100mg/m(2) alternating with cisplatin: 50mg/m(2) concurrent with radiotherapy at doses of 2 Gy/day until completing 70 Gy...

INTRODUCTION: Cutaneous radionecrosis and osteoradionecrosis are severe complications of the radiotherapy which can arise after a variable free interval. The loss of substance is frequently associated with a peripheral radiodermatitis and stays an infectious front door exposing patients to a sepsis. The reference treatment remains surgical and consists in realizing the debridment of necrosis tissues associated with flap in order to cover the soft tissus defect. The purpose of our study is to estimate efficiency and tolerance of management radionecrosis thoracique by muscle-sparing latissimus dorsi flap (MSLD)...

Interventional radiologists and staff members are frequently exposed to protracted and fractionated low doses of ionizing radiation, which extend during all their professional activities. These exposures can derive, due to the irradiation of skin tissues and peripheral blood, in deterministic effects (radiodermitis, aged skin, hands depilation) or stochastic ones (skin and non-solid cancers incidence). Epidemiological studies of population exposed to ionizing radiation provide information of radio-induced effects...

A forty-four-year old man was hospitalized for diagnosis and treatment of a left leg ulcer which did not heal despite good compliance with a three-month medical regimen. Twenty years before he had undergone surgical curettage and radiotherapy (81 gy) for an osteosarcoma of the upper third of the left tibia. He was considered completely cured with regular findings. On examination he had a 5 X 7 cm deep ulcer with raised margins and no signs of infection, localized on the radiodermatitis on the medial aspect of his left leg...
