PURPOSE To describe the management and outcomes of loco-regionally advanced (stages III-IV) laryngeal cancer (LRALC) in elderly patients. METHODS Clinical records of 88 LRALC patients treated at our Institution from 2002 to 2017 were retrospectively reviewed. Patients were divided in 2 subgroups: age > 65 years (elderly) and age ≤ 65 years (controls). Survivals were estimated with Kaplan-Meier method and compared with log-rank test, multivariate analysis were performed with Cox proportional haza...

Abstract Purpose Head and neck cancer (HNC) patients are likely to develop severe side effects, which may persist long after the end of treatment and may be responsible for decrease patient’s quality of life. The M.D. Anderson Symptom Inventory- Head and Neck Module (MDASI-HN) is a questionnaire developed to detect patient’s symptom burden. To conduct an Italian language psychometric validation of MDASI-HN among Italian HNC patients on behalf of the Italian Association of Radiotherapy and Clinic...

The objective of the paper was to assess real-life experience in the management of head and neck cancer (HNC) patients during the COVID-19 pandemic in radiotherapy departments and to evaluate the variability in terms of adherence to American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) recommendations. In May 2020, an anonymous 30-question online survey, comparing acute phase of outbreak and pre-COVID-19 period, was conducted. Two sections expl...

Objectives The role of radiotherapy (RT) for oligometastases is currently established in different oncological settings but data on salivary gland cancer (SGC) are lacking. We evaluated the role of RT in oligometastatic SGC patients, focusing on stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). Materials and methods We performed a retrospective, multicentric study of oligometastatic SGC treated with palliative RT or SBRT. Endpoints included response evaluation and local control (LC). Results Between 2...

Clinical data of ri-SGCs patients treated between 2015 and 2019 at a tertiary cancer center and a national hadron therapy facility were reviewed. Latent time (LT) from first RT to ri-SGCs diagnosis, overall (OS), and disease-free survival (DFS) were assessed. Thirteen patients developed 14 ri-SGCs (one patient had 2 synchronous ri-SCGs), after a median LT of 23 years (range 16–34). Parotid was the primary site in 8 cases (57%) and salivary duct carcinoma was the most frequent histotype (29%). Ni...
