BACKGROUND: Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising treatment option for local control of remnant cancer after surgical resection or biliary stenosis by the unresectable tumor in patients with bile duct carcinomas (BDC). To achieve effective tumor necrosis, an appropriate approach to laser irradiation is necessary. METHODS: The efficacy of endoscopy-guided PDT using porfimer (n=12) or talaporfin sodium (n=13) was investigated by evaluating the transhepatic biliary routes and endoscopic retrograde biliary (ERB) routes in 25 patients with BDC...

Sixty-two patients were treated for locally-advanced ampular rectal cancer at the Center's Clinic (2004-2008). Extended preoperative course of radiotherapy plus 5 = fluorouracil chemomodification was given to 55 patients (group 1) and the same plus hyperthermia--to 27 (group 2). Radiation injuries were reported in 37.1% (group 1) and 29.6% in group 2. Surgical complications occurred in 10 (group 1) (32.2%) and 8 (group 2) (32%). Relapse was registered in 3 (group 1) (12.5%) and 3 (group 2) (13.6%). Overall 3-year survival (group 1)--82%; (group 2)--63...

A method of forming the rectum reservoir after low anterior resection of the rectum has been developed, consisting in low anterior resection with mesorectumectomy, forming a reservoir from the colon, forming a rectosigmoid passage. The operation was made in 37 patients aged from 47 to 69 years for rectum cancer with the tumor localized in the middle and low ampular part. Complications in the early postoperative period appeared in 16.2% of the patients. There were no lethal outcomes. Mean time of staying at hospital after operation was 11...

The destruction of rectum carcinoma by electrocoagulation can be used for the treatment of patients of older age groups with high operative risk having exophite tumors of the inferior ampular part not more than 3 cm in size. When observing the conditions concerned and careful dispensary examination, the efficiency of immediate and long-term results of this operation are not inferior to generally used routine methods of treatment. Electrocoagulation of rectum carcinoma must be fulfilled but at oncological and specially equipped oncoproctological units...
