Abstract Aims Radiation-induced cavernomas (RIC) are common late toxicities in long-term survivors of malignancy following cerebral irradiation. However, the natural history of RIC is poorly described. We report the first series of long-term surveillance of RIC using modern magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) including highly sensitive susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI). The aims of this research were to better characterise the natural history of RIC and investigate the utility of MRI-SWI for sc...

AIMS Survivors of childhood, adolescent, and young adulthood malignancies have an increased risk of subsequent primary malignancies, particularly after exposure to therapeutic radiation. This study aims to evaluate the mode of surveillance and surveillance compliance, incidence and mode of detection of breast cancer, breast cancer phenotype, and outcomes after radiation-associated breast cancer (RBC) in a late-effects cohort. METHODS Women exposed to therapeutic radiation attending the late effe...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Compared to the general population, the incidence of thyroid cancer in childhood and adolescent and young adult malignancy survivors is increased 14.0-18.0 times (CI 11.7-23.8). The cumulative incidence is variably reported as 0.5% by age 45 with 30-year incidence of 1.3% in women and 0.6% in men. This study aims to evaluate the incidence of radiation-associated thyroid cancer amongst patients treated with prior radiation to the thyroid followed up in a late effects service....

Long-term survivors of childhood, adolescent and young adult (AYA) malignancies with past exposure to potentially cardiotoxic treatments are at risk of peripartum cardiac dysfunction. Incidence and risk factors for peripartum cardiac dysfunction and maternal cardiac outcomes in this population were investigated. Eligible long-term survivors were aged <30 years at cancer diagnosis, with ≥1 pregnancy occurring ≥5 years after diagnosis. “Peripartum” cardiac events were defined as occurring within p...

Introduction Optimal management of paediatric patients with tumours may include radiation therapy. Proton therapy, in theory, should achieve superior outcomes. For children referred overseas, multiple factors are taken into consideration. Aim and Methods The purpose of this article is to provide context to current decision making. The MEDLINE, EMBASE and PubMed databases were searched for relevant literature. Results and Discussion The delivery of proton therapy is in evolution. Tissue homogenei...

Background Women treated with chest irradiation for childhood, adolescent, and young adulthood (CAYA) malignancies, in particular Hodgkin’s lymphoma, have an increased risk of developing second cancers of the breast (SCB). However, there are few uniform guidelines regarding surveillance and prevention for this high-risk group.

Summary Survivors of childhood cancer treated with anthracycline chemotherapy or chest radiation are at an increased risk of developing congestive heart failure. In this population, congestive heart failure is well recognised as a progressive disorder, with a variable period of asymptomatic cardiomyopathy that precedes signs and symptoms. As a result, several clinical practice guidelines have been developed independently to help with detection and treatment of asymptomatic cardiomyopathy. These ...

Summary Female survivors of childhood, adolescent, and young adult (CAYA) cancer who were given radiation to fields that include breast tissue (ie, chest radiation) have an increased risk of breast cancer. Clinical practice guidelines are essential to ensure that these individuals receive optimum care and to reduce the detrimental consequences of cancer treatment; however, surveillance recommendations vary among the existing long-term follow-up guidelines. We applied evidence-based methods to de...
