Mamazone-Congress "die Diplompatientin" - Patient information session on the therapeutic options of hyperthermia
At the Mamazone-Kongress at the end of October (25.-27.10.2019) in University Hospital Augsburg, Dr. Markus Notter, Lindenhofspital Bern, informed patients about the use of superficial hyperthermia combined with hypofractionated re-irradiation in the treatment of inoperable, pre-irradiated local recurrence.
It is most important that patients are well-informed, since this treatment option is often not taken into consideration by physicians and the aim of effective tumor control is abandonned. Incomprehensibly, in Germany this treatment is not yet reimbursed (contrary to Switzerland and the Netherlands), although it is recommended in the leading German breast cancer guideline of "Arbeitsgemeinschaft Gynäkologische Onkologie (AGO)": Guidelines Breast Version 2019.1, see pages 472 and 474.
Dr. Friedrich Migeod, Klinik St. Georg Bad Aibling, summarized the therapeutic options of various hyperthermia techniques in the treatment of breast cancer.
Both lectures are now available in the Mamazone-Mitgliederbereich.
