Intraoperative adjuncts for malignant pleural mesothelioma

Translational Lung Cancer Research 2017 June [Link] Chan WH, Sugarbaker DJ, Burt BM Abstract Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a rapidly fatal disease. Multimodality surgically based therapies may extend survival in select patients, however, local relapse after resection is common. Novel intraoperative adjunctive therapies including heated intraoperative chemotherapy (HIOC), heated intraoperative povidone-iodine (PVP-I), and photodynamic […]

Three-dimensional finite-element based deformable image registration for evaluation of pleural cavity irradiation during photodynamic therapy

Medical Physics 2017 April [Epub ahead of print] [Link] Penjweini R, Kim MM, Zhu TC Abstract PURPOSE: Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is used after surgical resection to treat the microscopic disease for malignant pleural mesothelioma and to increase survival rates. As accurate light delivery is imperative to PDT efficacy, the deformation of the pleural volume during […]
