Regional hyperthermia for cancer.

Abstract

The clinical use of regional hyperthermia combined with radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or both in 107 patients with advanced cancer is reported. Surgery was subsequently carried out in eight patients. The radiofrequency equipment used is capable of heating tumors at any depth with few adverse side effects. Complete responses to therapy occurred in 16 percent of patients, and partial responses in 52 percent. Striking pain relief was observed in both responders and nonresponders.
