The patient study sample of 940 patients allowed us to verify the validity of the indicators in independent groups. The indicators can be used as a differential diagnostic reference in practical diagnostic work.... tovább »

[Cavity irradiation treatment of craniopharyngeoma cysts with 90 yttrium silicate colloid]

JULOW Jenő, LÁNYI Ferenc, HAJDA Márta, SIMKOVICS Miklós, ARANY Ilona, TÓTH Szabolcs, PÁSZTOR Emil

[ The authors report on the cavity radiotherapy of craniopharyngeoma cysts in 9 patients with 90Yttrium silicate colloid. The method has been used at the National Institute of Neurosurgical Sciences since 1975. In the vast majority of cases, the procedure results in shrinkage of the craniopharyngeal cysts, and in optimal cases, their disappearance, followed in most cases by improvement of the patients' condition. ]
