Using imaging proteins to watch in real time how the virus combated the cancer, Shah's team notices that the gel kept the stem cells alive longer, which allowed the virus to replicate and kill any residual cells that were not cut out during the debulking
The patient's medical history was complex, with a history of subtotal CH resection with tracheostomy at 4 days old, followed by multiple debulking
operations and a glossectomy over the following four years.
Overall survival was not significantly different at a median of 33 months with neoadjuvant chemotherapy-interval debulking
surgery group (NACT-IDS) and 29 months with primary debulking
surgery, said Dr.
Further surgical debulking
was performed with radical prostatectomy as the tumour now was adherent to and appeared to involve the prostate gland.
In concert, the system allows subsequent revascularization by debulking
, balloon angioplasty and stent placement.
of the epidural tumour and a T9/10 laminectomy were performed.
Platinum-based cytotoxic chemotherapy in conjunction with debulking
surgery is currently the gold standard of treatment for patients with ovarian cancer.
Resection and debulking
of the tumours followed with extensive surgery to the spine, liver and femur.
Neoadjuvant therapy has a potential role in patients who are very sick with other comorbidities, but it is not a replacement for debulking
Fiber-placement head on a robotic arm applies some heat while compaction roller on a head allows work on concave surfaces with minimal secondary debulking
Clinicopathologic information documented at the time of surgery included tumor stage, grade, histotype, residual tumor size, and debulking
3) Many patients proceed with a second debulking
surgery with postoperative therapies that include stereotactic radiosurgery, brachytherapy implants, immunotherapy, intracavitary chemotherapy, and conventional IV chemotherapy.
