Endoluminal hdr iridium 192 afterloading irradiation in tracheobronchial tumors


, : Endoluminal hdr iridium 192 afterloading irradiation in tracheobronchial tumors. Strahlentherapie und Onkologie 164(4): 202-207

We report about 50 patients with inoperable bronchus tumors treated since March 1986 in a prospective nonrandomized study with HDR-irridium-192-afterloading-irradiation in 140 applications. 26 patients were treated combined with external irradiation. 32 were treated before with laser therapy, one with chemotherapy (small cell carcinoma). The actuarial survival rate (Kaplan-Meier) was 26% after 36 weeks for all patients; 38% for combined endoluminal and external irradiation and 9% for patients treated with AL alone. Death was caused by the local tumor in 85%. In 41% lethal bleeding was seen.

The hypothesis that glow peak 5a arises from localised e-h capture is confirmed by the following experimental observations: (i) The high conversion efficiency (CE) (CE5a-->4 = 3 +/- 0.5) of peak 5a to peak 4 (a hole-only trap) deduced from deta...
