Background: Baseline urinary incontinence (UI) strongly modulates UI recovery after adjuvant/salvage radiotherapy (ART/SRT), inducing clinicians to postpone it “as much as possible”, maximizing UI recovery but possibly reducing efficacy. This series aims to analyze the trend of UI recovery and its predictors at radiotherapy start. Methods: A population of 408 patients treated with ART/SRT enrolled in a cohort study (ClinicalTrials.gov #NCT02803086) aimed at developing predictive models of radiat...

Abstract Background and purpose To assess bowel dose-volume relationships for acute patient-reported intestinal symptoms of patients treated with whole-pelvis intensity-modulated radiotherapy (WPRT) for prostate cancer. Materials and methods Complete data of 415 patients enrolled in a multi institute, prospective trial (#NCT02803086) treated with radical (31%), adjuvant (33%) and salvage (36%) intent at a median dose to pelvic nodes/lymph-nodal area of 53Gy were available. The most severe change...

Abstract Purpose To assess the toxicity profile of prostate cancer stereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT) in 3 fractions. Methods and Materials This is a prospective, multicenter phase II toxicity study enrolling patients with low to favorable intermediate risk prostate cancer. Before simulation 3-4 fiducial markers along with a rectal spacer were placed. The target (prostate only) was prescribed 40 Gy, while the maximum dose to the urethra was limited to 33 Gy with the highest priority at planning; l...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the predictive role of response on dynamic contrast enhancement on magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) of visible local lesions in the setting of salvage radiotherapy (sRT) after radical prostatectomy. METHODS: All patients referred for sRT for biochemical failure after radical prostatectomy from February 2014 to September 2016 were considered eligible if they had been restaged with DCE-MRI and had been found to have a visible lesion in the prostatic bed, but no distant/nod...

Objective. To investigate predictors of patient-reported urinary incontinence (PRUI) in the first 2 years after post-prostatectomy radiotherapy (PORT) with particular emphasis on possible dose-effect relationships. Patients and Methods. Two-hundred-thirteen patients, whose clinical and dosimetric data were prospectively collected within a registered multi-institutional cohort study, underwent PORT with adjuvant (n=106) or salvage (n=107) intent with conventional (n=123, prescribed dose to the pr...

Metastatic involvement of the larynx is rare due to the absence of vessels within the cartilaginous tissue. The probability of metastatic spread increases with aging as a result of larynx ossification. The secondary involvement of larynx is more frequently associated with melanoma and renal cell carcinoma. Few observations have been reported also in prostate cancer patients, usually associated with advanced disease and diffuse metastatic bone involvement. We report a case of an 83-year-old man w...
