Treating Prostate Cancer with Radioactive Seed Implants
Dr. Geo Espinosa, ND, LAc, IFMCP, CNS, clinical assistant professor of integrative and functional urology at New York University and author of Thrive—Don’t Survive: Dr. Geo’s Guide to Living Your Best Life Before & After Prostate Cancer, discusses radioactive seed implants as a treatment for prostate cancer. Radioactive seed implants (also known as Brachytherapy or internal radiation therapy) are tiny pellets of radioactive material that are placed around the prostate to kill cancer cells. This treatment method has fallen out of favor, and fewer physicians are being trained in its administration. Why? Because while these seeds may effectively kill cancer cells, they also can cause urinary difficulties, such as urinary frequency and urgency, and infertility, reduced semen production and erectile dysfunction.

Every man should see this. Commissioned by the Brachytherapy Advisory Trust to promote Brachytherapy as a treatment for Prostate Cancer. Unbelievably few know about it, though it's been around for 25 years. If you catch Prostate Cancer early enough guys, you won't need to have your Prostate removed and all the horrendous things that come with it. Brachytherapy involves small radioactive pellets, is an outpatient procedure, and you'll be home in the afternoon. The personal stories are very illuminating. And it's on the NHS.

5-Session Radiation Treatment For Prostate Cancer (SBRT or Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy)
The most common course of radiation for prostate cancer takes 9-weeks of daily treatment, but we now have much faster technique that requires only FIVE sessions (each, only 2-3 minutes.) This newer technique is called "SBRT" (stereotactic body radiation therapy), and it uses the most advanced radiation therapy machines that have millimeter precision in targeting and tracking the prostate. Studies have shown excellent cancer control rates, comparable to 9-weeks of daily treatment and prostate brachytherapy ("seed implant".) We provide this treatment to eligible patients under a research protocol to collect longterm data on cancer control and quality of life outcomes.

4D Brachytherapy The Patients Film - Prostate Cancer Treatment
Our brief from WebBXT, was to create a series of informative, science based videos on a new prostate cancer treatment. "Brachytherapy" is a targeted form of radiotherapy and literally means 'near therapy'. As a new form of cancer care, there was an urgent desire to raise awareness of it on several levels and to different audiences. At one end of the spectrum we produced a 40 Minute training video which is being used to train new practitioners in the treatment. At the other end is a ten minute film that explains to prospective patients what to expect from the treatment lets them meet the team that will look after them. Each film used the basic content of 4D Brachytherapy and presented it in a different way for different audiences. Our films are: An advert to be used at global Trade Shows - this gives an overview of the treatment and raises awareness of it to medical professionals A patient film to be used for Brachytherapy patients at medical centres -- this needed to be an extremely sensitive film as viewers were likely to be in the early stages of accepting their diagnosis and would need all the information in the film to enable them to consider the treatment as one of the options available to them An animation to be used as a website trailer raising awareness of the process of ordering the radioactive seeds used for treatment online -- the audience here is the staff at medical centres who order the treatment online A 40 minute training video used to train new medical practitioners in the complete brachytherapy treatment. This was an in-depth, exact and detailed account of the treatment, instructing practitioners in how to carry out the process. This series of films supported the launch of the new product for WebBXT and it demonstrates how awareness can be created very quickly when bringing a new product or service to market. This project also shows how film can be adapted to suit any audience and message.

When deciding on a course of treatment for prostate cancer you should carefully consider these impacts with your doctor. {partial transcript} Dr. Zelefsky, lets start with radiation and can you compare that for me and then give Dr. Eastham a shot at the same thing in terms of the big side effects that most men want to know about: potency and continence when it comes to radiation – how does it compare? Also, is there a difference between external beam and Brachytherapy or seed implants? Well, generally speaking, the differences are not dramatic between external beam and Brachytherapy, so I think we could make it simple in terms of looking of looking at these general side effects. We call this late side affects, which are the more important ones that are temporary side effects from these treatments such as frequent urination and bowel movements. But these resolve a month or two later. The more meaningful ones that we should be talking about are what we call late side effects that could pop up a year or two later. These include rectal bleeding, which is seen in five percent of the patients during bowel movement. Occasionally, patients could see some blood in the stool. We’re not talking about serious hemorrhage, but it certainly is annoying. It could take time, meaning it could take a year or two with conservative management to get better.

Prostate Brachytherapy and prostate cancer operation
Rodney Ellis, MD, performs a prostate cancer procedure utilizing the SpaceOAR® injection procedure. The SpaceOAR® System is the first product in the United States cleared as a spacer to protect the rectum in patients undergoing prostate cancer (PCa) radiotherapy. Placed through a tiny needle, the hydrogel is administered as a liquid, but quickly solidifies into a soft gel that expands the space between the prostate and rectum. The hydrogel spacer holds this space until radiotherapy is complete. The spacer then liquefies and is absorbed and cleared from the body in the patient’s urine.

If you need radiation therapy for prostate cancer, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center recommends that you discuss both options with your doctor and weigh the pros and cons of each. In this video, Michael Zelefsky, MD, explains some factors to consider when deciding which treatment to pursue. {partial transcript} Dr. Zelefsky, tell me about radiation therapy because that seems to be the obvious choice versus surgery. Well, radiation therapy, as we mentioned, comes in two forms: Its external beam radiation therapy, with sophisticated targeting technique, known as IGRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy) and seed implants. Usually, each one could be a therapy that is very effective in the earlier stages of prostate cancer. For more aggressive prostate cancers, we sometimes combine these two treatments, the external radiation plus the seed implant. Sometimes when it’s a little more aggressive, we may consider adding hormonal therapy together to achieve the best control of the prostate cancer. What’s the rational for adding hormonal therapy to radiation treatments? Based on a number of studies, it appears that when it’s more aggressive, you need a little more help in eradicating the disease, such as higher radiation doses. There is evidence to suggest that when using hormones together with radiation, the hormones seem to sensitize the radiation and make it more effective in terms of its ability to kill cells.

What is 3-D Conformal Radiation Therapy? General Guidelines Possible Side Effects What Is Intensity-Modulated Radiotherapy? What is Proton Beam Radiation Therapy? Additional Questions About Radiation Therapy Radiation therapy, also called X-ray therapy, uses high levels of radiation to kill prostate cancer cells or keep them from growing and dividing, while minimizing damage to healthy cells. Radiation can be produced from a machine outside the body (external radiation) and directed right at the prostate or by putting materials that produce radiation (radioisotopes) through thin plastic tubes into the cancer-infected area (internal radiation or brachytherapy). Internal radiation therapy places radioactive implants directly into the tumor. These radioactive sources can be temporary (removed after the proper dose is reached) or permanent. See Radioactive Seed Implants for more about this type of radiation therapy for prostate cancer. What Happens on Treatment Days? External radiation therapy requires regular sessions (generally five days per weeks) during a period of about five to eight weeks. For each treatment, the radiation therapist will help you onto the treatment table and into the correct position. Once the therapist is sure you are positioned well, he or she will leave the room and start the radiation treatment.I really don't care anymore Don't have any family No one that calls me on the phone No one that really cares I do have a few friends that care And that you love me But other Nat I don't care I wanna die Doesn't matter to me no more

Radiation Treatment for Prostate Cancer
Radiation treatment for prostate cancer. In this short video, Steven G. Lester, M.D., F.A.C.R.O., a board-certified radiation oncologist, at Central Florida Cancer Care Center describes the different types of radiation treatment available for prostate cancer patients. “We have two forms of radiation we can use for prostate cancer,” says Dr. Lester. “One is a radioactive seed implant, and the other is daily radiation treatment utilizing an IMRT or IGRT technique period. Many patients are candidates for both or a combination of the two treatments.” “Radioactive seeds is a procedure done in the operating room. In conjunction with urologists, between 50 and 120 radioactive pellets which look like the short side of a staple are placed into the prostate utilizing needle sticks with ultrasound in the rectum guiding the placement of the seeds.” “Radioactive seeds is an excellent technique when the patient has a small gland, a small localized cancer, and they can urinate well. Patients who don't urinate well because they have an enlarged gland, often get too much swelling from having 30 or 40 needle sticks in their prostate. The advantage of that procedure is that it's a one-shot deal. You get it over with.” “The other option is daily radiation treatments, what the bulk of patients in this country are treated with. Those are daily from Monday through Friday, and take about 15 minutes a day. There's no pain; it's like having a cat scan or an MRI. The beam time is about three or four minutes.” “When you finish the treatment, you get up and go about your daily life, hardly noticing anything. You might notice after a couple of weeks due to a little swelling in the gland you urinate more frequently with urgency. You may have fatigue where you feel like having a nap. Many patients don't even notice it, and the younger patients keep working right through treatment.” “The important thing to know is that there's no sickness, no nausea, and no pain. The main hassle is coming in and out for treatment for nine weeks. While patients consider that a hassle, those of us who want to cure cancer don't consider it so. Nine weeks of daily treatment to get rid of a serious disease is not so bad.” “Try to work with the clinic. We want to fit into your schedule the best we can. However, we have a serious medical problem we are trying to eradicate so giving us 15 minutes a day for nine weeks is really not a lot. So please work with the staff if you would like to be treated with radiation. If you opt for surgery, work with your surgeon, and he'll get you through the procedure and over the side effects. Hopefully, you'll be able to lead a normal lifestyle, put it behind you and be one of those patients that we’ve cured.” For more visit http://cancercarecenter.md/ To learn more about Dr. Lester visit https://www.cancercarecenter.md/steven-lester/ To learn more about prostate cancer visit https://www.cancercarecenter.md/prostate-cancer/ For patient resources visit https://www.cancercarecenter.md/resources-and-links/ To learn more about external beam radiation therapy visit https://www.cancercarecenter.md/external-beam-radiation-therapy/ To learn more about internal beam radiation therapy visit https://www.cancercarecenter.md/internal-radiation-therapy/ To learn more about image-guided radiation therapy visit https://www.cancercarecenter.md/imrt-igrt/

A recent large study reports on men treated by combining seed implantation and external radiation.

Men should be very concerned if their doctor advises this combination as it is more likely to be good for the doctor than for you, the patient.

Prostate Cancer - Treatment And Recovery Part 2
http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/ http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/endosterol.html http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/products.html The main advances in prostate cancer treatment are being made in surgery and radiotherapy. Surgeons are learning how to remove the prostate without causing the problematic nerve damage which was inevitable in the past. And radiotherapy technology advances mean that far higher doses can be targeted more precisely on the prostate, killing more cancer cells with fewer treatments. Recent advances include the use of a technique called brachytherapy. There are two major methods of prostate brachytherapy, permanent seed implantation and high dose rate (HDR) temporary brachytherapy. Permanent seed implants involve injecting approximately 100 radioactive seeds into the prostate gland. They give off their cancer-killing radiation at a low dose rate over several weeks or months, and the seeds remain in the prostate gland permanently. HDR temporary brachytherapy instead involves placing very tiny plastic catheters into the prostate gland, and then giving a series of radiation treatments through these catheters. Another option is High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound, which uses sound waves to 'melt' away the cancer.

Permanent Seed Implants
Provided by Alta Bates Summit Medical Center located in Oakland and Berkeley, California in the East Bay Area. Brachytherapy is the placement of radio active seeds directly within the tumor target which in this case is the prostate. It is a way of trying to reduce the risk of injury to nearby normal structures like the bladder and the rectum. By placing the seeds within the prostate we deliver a very high dose of radiation to the prostate without having to have the radiation pass through normal tissues to get there. It's an excellent way to cure patients with early stage disease with minimal impact on the quality of life. The doctors at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center have performed over 700 implants on patients with early stage disease with excellent control rates and excellent morbidity rates.

Of the options available, one is typically not as popular, but remains highly effective – radioactive ‘seed’ implants. “We have good long term follow-up, 15-year follow-up, now that shows the cure rates for seeds are as good as they are for surgery and external beam radiation therapy for early stage prostate cancer,” said Eric Klein, M.D., of Cleveland Clinic. Recent research shows seeds, also called brachytherapy or internal radiation, work well for intermediate risk prostate cancer too. Each seed is housed in a tiny metal casing and contains radioactive iodine. The seeds are implanted during an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Dr. Klein said about 100 radioactive seeds are usually implanted into the prostate and guided in place using ultrasound. The seeds deliver a high dose of radiation inside the prostate while limiting damage to surrounding tissues. The radioactive material disintegrates over time, but the casings remain inside the prostate. Dr. Klein said side effects are minimal compared to other forms of radiation and just one treatment session is needed. “Compared to external beam radiation therapy, seeds are really convenient because it’s one outpatient procedure whereas external beam radiation therapy and standard treatment is usually 35 to 40 treatments over eight weeks,” said Dr. Klein. Dr. Klein added that the ideal candidate for radioactive seeds is an older man with early or intermediate risk prostate cancer that has not spread.
