In order to provide a comprehensive insight into the indications under which patients are being treated with oncothermia we would like to present a few representative cases. Some of the cases are very new, some of them were treated over a 5year period, used for followup cases and other possibilities. These old treatments are new results for the followup, which is the critical issue for the feasibility of future prospective trials.
We would like to demonstrate the efficacy of the oncothermia method in some peculiar cases. These are selected to show the very advanced cases as well as such localizations that are contraindicated by conventional hyperthermia, but where oncothermia is able to handle the case (brain, eye, etc.) We have to add an important safety note however: these cases require great expertise of the oncothermia applications, special care with extreme attention at the treatment always counting the inherent risk of causing harm. The patients senses in these cases give crucial control and have to be regarded as the main feedback mechanism during treatment.
