[A new possibility in treating stenosing tumors of the upper gastrointestinal tract].

[Article in German]

Abstract

A new method for treating inoperable patients with stenosing malignant tumors of the upper gastrointestinal tract consists in the combination of laser beam followed by direct internal radiation of the tumor using the afterload technique. It brings rapid improvement of dysphagia and resumption of oral feeding. Improvement in quality of life such as this has been achieved in 21 of 24 patients without any signs of complication due to therapy.
