PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess the effects of neck radiation on the results of Doppler sonography of carotid arteries in head and neck cancer patients. METHODS In this prospective, cross-sectional study, 25 consecutive patients with head and neck cancers were assessed for carotid artery stenosis (CAS) by carotid color Doppler sonography before external radiotherapy and six months after external radiotherapy. Main outcome measures were peak systolic velocity (PSVs), end-diastolic vel...

Background: The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of triamcinolone acetonide (TA) mucoadhesive films versus placebo as a preventive and therapeutic intervention of oral mucositis (OM) induced by radiotherapy for head-and-neck cancer (HNC) patients. Materials and Methods: In this double-blind, randomized case-controlled clinical trial, 60 HNC patients were randomized to receive TA mucoadhesive films (n = 30) or placebo mucoadhesive films (n = 30) taken four times daily....

Introduction: Total skin electron irradiation technique is used in treatment of the mycosis fungoid. The implementation of this technique requires non-standard measurements and complex dosimetry methods. Operating procedures for total skin electron irradiation and its dosimetry vary in different radiation therapy centers in the world. In this article, validation of TSET technique dosimetry data by Monte Carlo simulation is done. Materials and Methods: The electron beam characteristic of RTSEI fo...

In recent decades neoadjuvant therapies such as combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy have been introduced for cancer management. Compared with monotherapy modalities, neoadjuvant therapy is associated with greater effectiveness while having minor side effects. Docetaxel is a chemotherapy agent for breast cancer treatment which can blocks the cell cycle at the G2/M phase which has shown special sensitivity to the ionizing radiation and hence causes cell death. To the best of our knowledge, ther...

Aim Mucositis is a major complication of irradiation in head and neck tumors, the addition of chemotherapy to irradiation may enhance this dose-limiting problem. Licorice is a strong demulcent that had been effectively used in treatment of peptic ulcer. The main purpose of this study was to compare the therapeutic safety and efficacy of triamcinolone acetonide (T) and licorice (L) mucoadhesive films on oral mucositis in terms of pain control and/or ulcer treatment. Methods The study was a double...

Background: Depending on the site of irradiation, about 40-80% of patients undergoing radiotherapy (RT) will experience nausea and/or vomiting. The current study aimed to investigate the efficacy of ondansetronas as a single agent and with a combination to aprepitant on preventing RT-induced nausea and vomiting (RINV). Materials and Methods: In a clinical randomized controlled trial (from September 2010 to September 2011), conducted in Radiation Oncology Department of Seyed-al-Shohada Hospital,I...
