Abstract

For the recurrence of head and neck cancer after operation and radiotherapy, the local control of radioactive seed implantation is good, and it has a certain palliative effect. This study aims to investigate the acute and late side effects of a three-dimentional printing non co-planar template (3D-PNCT) for computed tomography (CT)-guided radioactive 125I seed (RIS) implantation in recurrent cancer of the head and neck. Between January 2016 and December 2016, forty-two patients with local recurrent malignant tumors of the head and neck received 3D-PNCT-assisted RIS implantation. The prescribed dose was 110-160 Gy. Preoperative planning design, production of individual guide plates, RIS implantation, postoperative dose evaluation, and follow-up were completed for all patients. Side effects in the skin, mucous membranes, blood and spinal cord were evaluated. All patients underwent surgery successfully. Duration of follow-up was 4-14 (median, of 8.5) months. The activity of a single RIS was 0.34-0.7 (median, 0.6) mCi. The number of RIS was 10-126 (median, 34). The number of implantation needles was 4-31 (median, 11). The mean D2cc (dose to the most exposed 2-cc volume) and D0.1cc (dose to the most exposed 0.1-cc volume) of the skin were 24.9 (7.1-85.5) and 47.5 (9.4-167.2), respectively, whereas those of the spinal cord were 8.4 (4.5-33.3) and 14.2 (13.6-63.0), mucosa were 35.1 (4.2-82.8) and 87.0 (6.6-214.1), parotid glands were 16.2 (12.8-19.7) and 29.8 (26.1-33.4) and those of the trachea were 17.9 (2.5-45.9) and 32.7 (3.9-83.9), respectively. No case had an acute reaction of grade ≥ 3. Three cases had a grade-1 skin reaction. Blood toxicity did not occur, nor spinal-cord injury. Xerostomia was not aggravated than that of before brachytherapy. One case had a grade-3 nerve response. 3D-PNCT-assisted RIS implantation can provide good accuracy for positioning. For local recurrent malignant tumor of head and neck, there were no obvious adverse reactions.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 February 2018.
All research outputs
#9,576,683
of 12,465,602 outputs
Outputs from Radiation Oncology
#876
of 1,306 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#226,074
of 339,771 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Radiation Oncology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,465,602 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,306 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.3. This one is in the 25th percentile – i.e., 25% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 339,771 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 27th percentile – i.e., 27% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
