Background: Standard chemoradiotherapy (CRT) using cisplatin (CDDP) and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) is an optional treatment for patients with stage II-III esophageal cancer. However, there are some demerits in this regimen because CDDP administration requires a large transfusion volume and 5-FU must be continuously infused over 24 h. Therefore, hospitalization is unavoidable. Read More

The aim of this study was to determine the outcome of salvage definitive chemoradiation (dCRT) for a locoregional recurrence after any prior curative treatment outside previously irradiated areas. Thirty-nine patients treated between January 2005 and December 2014 were reviewed for locoregional recurrent esophageal cancer outside previously irradiated areas. All patients received salvage treatment with external beam radiotherapy (50. Read More

A consensus treatment strategy for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) patients who recur after definitive radiochemotherapy/radiotherapy has not been established. This study compared the outcomes in ESCC patients who underwent salvage surgery, salvage chemoradiation (CRT) or best supportive care (BSC) for local recurrence. Ninety-five patients with clinical stage I to III ESCC who had completely responded to the initial definitive radiochemotherapy or radiotherapy alone and developed local recurrence were enrolled in this study.

Background: Optimal management of locally recurrent prostate cancer after definitive radiation therapy is still challenging. With the development of highly accurate radiotherapy devices, prostate salvage re-irradiation might generate lower toxicity rates than classical salvage therapies. We retrospectively evaluated the toxicity and the feasibility of a prostate re-irradiation after definitive radiation therapy failure. Read More
