Background and Purpose: Larynx cancer represents one of the most frequently diagnosed head and neck malignancies, which is most often confined to the glottic area. The aim of this study was to report the oncological outcome and identify prognostic factors in early-stage glottic squamous cell carcinoma treated with radiotherapy. Material and Methods: Patients (n=761) diagnosed and treated in 10 centers between 1990 and 2015 were retrospectively analyzed. Probabilities of loco-regional control (LR...

Summary Background & aims Enteral feeding is commonly required during radiotherapy treatment for head and neck cancer. Only limited qualitative research into head and neck cancer patients' experiences of enteral tube feeding has been undertaken. The aim of this qualitative study was to evaluate patients' experiences of EF and the surrounding decision making process. Methods Semi-structured, face-to face interviews were conducted with ten patients who had completed (chemo)radiotherapy/radiotherap...

Abstract Aims To assess the impact of weekly scheduled peer review of head and neck contours for definitive and adjuvant radiotherapy cases based on rates of recommended changes. Materials and methods Retrospective analysis of a prospective database. Recommended changes were prospectively classified as ‘major’ (change in gross tumour volume and/or high-dose clinical target volume, dose/fractionation) or ‘minor’ (change in intermediate or elective dose clinical target volumes or organs at risk). ...

Abstract Aim There are few data to inform on the use of response assessment 2-[fluorine-18]-fluoro-2-deoxy- d -glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) following radical radiotherapy without chemotherapy for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). This retrospective study evaluated the accuracy of PET-CT in HNSCC following radical radiotherapy. Materials and methods In total, 138 patients with HNSCC treated with radical radiotherapy without chemotherapy who ...

Abstract Aims To assess long-term patient-reported swallow function after chemoradiotherapy for oropharyngeal carcinoma and to evaluate the frequency of deterioration/improvement over years. Materials and methods Fifty-nine patients with oropharyngeal carcinoma treated with parotid-sparing intensity-modulated radiotherapy and concurrent chemotherapy between 2010 and 2012 had previously completed the MD Anderson Dysphagia Inventory (MDADI) at a median of 34 months (range 24–59) after treatment. A...

Background: Aim of study was to assess impact of deformable registration of diagnostic MRI to planning CT upon gross tumour volume (GTV) delineation of oropharyngeal carcinoma in routine practice. Methods: 22 consecutive patients with oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma treated with definitive (chemo)radiotherapy between 2015 and 2016, for whom primary GTV delineation had been performed by a single radiation oncologist using deformable registration of diagnostic MRI to planning CT, were identi...
