This is a PDF file of an unedited manuscript that has been accepted for publication. Support Dvy Support Center. Significant effect of dvhh chemotherapy on survival in locally advanced non-small-cell lung carcinoma. Minor clinical symptoms with no medical intervention required were considered grade 1; moderate symptoms requiring pain medication with good response, grade 2; and severe symptoms, treated with multiple pain medications, including neuropathic drugs or steroid injections, with some or no improvement in symptoms, grade 3.

At a median follow-up time of We also evaluated the contribution of other factors, such cvh having plexopathy before radiation, receipt of concurrent chemotherapy, and receipt of proton versus photon therapy, to the risk of developing brachial plexopathy. Patients with brachial plexopathy before treatment due to tumor invasion or surgical intervention were considered to have plexopathy after radiation treatment only if the plexopathy had cleared and then returned without evidence of new tumor impingement.
Preliminary report by the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group. This work was made possible through the generosity 5116 the family of M.
Dose-volume histograms DVHs of the brachial plexuses for the first 10 patients original training set contoured manually werecompared to those created by deformable image registration deformable image set Fig.
Other significant risk factors were having plexopathy before treatment OR 4. The underlying mechanismis thought to be due to demyelination leading to axon loss [ 9 ]. We developed a computer-assisted image segmentation method which allowed us to rapidly and consistently contour the brachial plexus and establish the dose limits to minimize the risk of brachial plexopathy.
Even with the differences in anatomy and positioning among patients, we noticed excellent correlation between the STAPLE fused contours and the manually generated contours, suggesting that STAPLE fusion of multiple individual segmentations can reduce variability and produce accurate contours.
Brachial plexopathy was documented according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events v4. C DRR showing patient with a superior sulcus tumor with contours of the brachial plexus generated by deformable image registration followed by manual modification.
Brachial plexopathy can present with a wide range of symptoms, often irreversibly, including numbness, pain, parasthesias, and motor impairment [ 8 ]. Also, changes in arm position can affect the visibility of the brachial plexus and can contribute to inaccuracies in deformable image registration.

This may prove to be problematic for complying with dose constraints to structures like the brachial plexus. We used a multi-atlas segmentation method combined with deformable dbh registration to delineate the brachial plexuson the original planning CT scans and scoredplexopathy according to dvu Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events v4.
For lung cancers near the apical region, brachial plexopathy is a major concern for high-dose radiation therapy. Auto-segmentation using deformable image registration followed by modification was found to be accurate for the majority of the cases, with only slight modification needed, mostly based on aberrant arm position.
Interestingly, we found that doses to 0. Next we plan to validate these dose constraints in an ongoing randomized phase III trial looking at dose escalation for lung cancer. As improvements in surgical and radiation techniques and chemotherapy regimens lead to longer survival for patients with lung cancer, the need to monitor toxicity and adapt our practice accordingly becomes ever more imperative.
This was corrected withminor modifications for each individual to ensure consistency.
Tel ; fax ; gro. It is well known that peripheral nerves are sensitive to recurrent episodes of trauma, whether from tumor invasion or from surgical intervention [ 915 ]; multiple traumas might be expected to reduce the threshold for development of symptoms. At present, the maximum tolerated radiation dose for the brachial plexus remains a matter of debate.
