Search results for 'stereotactic radiation' (108)

…running a clinical trial and I imagine other large veterinary hospitals may offer it as well. Colorado State University, and I’m sure others, offer stereotactic radiation for primary lung tumors as well so that may be an option to research too. Both are less invasive than a lobectomy but I don’t how the efficacy

Lurker since September but first time post to weigh in on our experience with stereotactic radiation (sometimes called CyberKnife depending on the facility). Before all that, I want to say how sorry I am that both of your dogs have been diagnosed…

…- it’s just truly unimaginable and my heart goes out to you. It’s so cruel and unfair. 

First, there are two options for stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT). The first is called curative or definitive SRT. It’s high dose radiation given over one to three treatments and it’s intended to

…his elbow (which is highly unusual for this type to be in the elbow). The specialty vet thought they could save his leg so we have done surgery, stereotactic radiation, carboplatin, and a little bit of palladia since June 2018. 

After all that, the cancer has returned to his leg and is probably still present in

Our dog, Bree, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Jan. 2017.  We did stereotactic radiation with carboplatin chemo, and it worked for a little while.  When the tumor started growing again, we amputated (Sep. 2017) followed by doxorubicin

…at our regular vet, revealing a tumor at the head of the humerus , the oncologist confirmed with CT scan and we didn't risk a biopsy.  We decided on stereotactic radiation therapy, which was done July 12.  He has done three rounds of carboplatin and is happy and active at this time.  I have read tons of your posts and

…or alternatively 1 fraction of Cyberknife radiation therapy. About 50-75% of dogs experience pain relief. CyberKnife is a specialized form of Stereotactic Radiation Therapy. It is sometimes called radiosurgery, as CyberKnife is a non-invasive way to deliver radiation therapy with similar precision as a surgical

You may be able to try radiation therapy or stereotactic radiation surgery (were these two things mentioned?), but we see many members return after a few months when the treatment stopped working and amputation

I'm also surprised that nobody has even mentioned stereotactic radiation surgery for palliative care, or perhaps even a limb sparing surgery. Have they? If not, then I would absolutely recommend a veterinary teaching

…he mind vet visits? Or do you think he wants that part of his life to be behind him now?

Another idea: are there any clinics nearby that can do stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT i.e., "cyberknife")? SRT cuts the usual radiation treatment times by more than half, which means less visits and less anesthesia.

What kind of radiation therapy is available in your area? If you have access to stereotactic radiation therapy (aka SRT or "cyberknife"), it's a relatively quick, targeted treatment that has little impact on quality of life. If you don't have any

… seeming to have a tougher time (trachea especially) recovering from the GA.
Our only possible vet hospital for treatment in state does not offer stereotactic radiation. I really wanted to inquire about that in a neighboring state, but we did not make it.
What would I do differently? I wish we had had a better…

We had 6 months and I treasure them. He walked, he swam, he went to dog park and begged for his Daddy's beer. He was pain free and was "our boy"

…did not put him through those daily treatments for a nearly a full month, which is what would have been recommended for his situation. If we had had stereotactic radiation as an option closer to us, I likely would have pursued that.

OK I hope

Yes, palliative care with stereotactic radiation and chemo is incredibly expensive, around $15k for both according to Hazel's people. Thankfully their pet insurance company paid the bill. I'm

Either palliative or stereotactic radiation, w/o chemo, but the radiation cost is so high and I'm struggling with knowing that I will still only get 4-5 months with Moose. I feel awful for…

If I do the stereotactic radiation plus chemo, maybe I get a year. But, if I do amputation and chemo, I may get a year or more. But, that's a total crap shoot since this cancer can

…sign of side-effects I will stop giving it. 

There is one vet clinic in Central Germany that is the first in all of Europe to test a new kind of stereotactic radiation with which they can apparently treat extremely accurate. My vets will be in touch with them, if that is anything for us at all we might try it yet.

Hank did several rounds of stereotactic radiation therapy at CSU. I believe he also had bisphosphonate injections, similar to what Hazel the Great Dane recently completed.

…came across this interesting study about treating osteosarcoma spinal mets and related pain with stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT). There isn't much on treating spinal mets so I thought I'd mention this for future reference. The study came out of Colorado State…

…and one of the study leaders is Dr. Stephen J. Withrow, DVM, who among many other things, pioneered limb sparing surgery.

"Use of PET/CT and Stereotactic Radiation Therapy for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Osteosarcoma Metastases."

This case report describes the use of two new concepts in the diagnosis and…

…to screen for further metastatic lesions, and a nodule within the right ischium was identified. The C7 and ischial lesions were treated with stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT). Sixteen mo postdiagnosis, a third PET/CT was performed due to increasing size of the pulmonary nodules and a right-sided liver

…... long story which I will update on this link a bit later (http://tripawds.....iotherapy/), but we are going back to UF next week for stereotactic radiation (SRT).  If you're not familiar with it, it's statistically as good as amputation and saves the leg (with the risk of fracture).

We just got…

…tomorrow (day 30).  We have a local vet who can do it (way cheaper than UF).  This keeps her mostly on schedule.  However, we will do stereotactic radiation next Wed-Fri (days 4-6 post carboplatin).  Doing chemo prior increases the risk of side effects (skin rash, gastrointestinal upset), though

…human oncology, doing chemo prior to surgery is common and generally more effective.

The harder part of the decision for us is that we have this stereotactic radiation option staring in our face.  We elected not to do it, because it risks fracture and won't remove all of the primary tumor.  But now I'm wondering
