Brachytherapy + Prostate Cancer
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.

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.

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.

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.
Seed Implant + External Radiation: Is it the Right Treatment for You?
A recent large study reports on men treated by combining seed implantation and external radiation. There are many flaws with the report and it provides very misleading information about the effectiveness of this treatment while completely omitting any information about side effects. 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.

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.

High Dose Rate Brachytherapy in the Treatment of Prostate Cancer
Provided by Alta Bates Summit Medical Center located in Oakland and Berkeley, California in the East Bay Area. When we are discussing carcinoma of the prostate, if the prostate tumor is what we call low risk, that is a low Gleason score, a low PSA, and a low stage the patient may be a candidate for any number of treatments options including radical surgery, external beam radiation, permanent seed implant, or high dose rate Brachytherapy. Unlike external beam radiation, where the treatment comes from the outside in, with high dose rate brachytherapy the treatment is from the inside out. And we do that by inserting hollow, thin surgical plastic catheters into the prostate gland through the skin of the bottom. And a sealed radiation source is afterloaded into the hallow catheter. So the prostate tumor is radiated from the inside out in as opposed to the outside in as with external beam radiation. It takes about an hour to do the procedure. Then the patient goes to the recovery room and then after that we bring the patient up to our department and do a CT scan which will show us that array of catheters and the surrounding normal anatomy, the bladder, the rectum and urethra which runs directly through the middle of the target. Using that information we come up with a treatment plan to optimize the dose to that specific anatomy. Once the calculations are complete the patient is moved to a treatment room and attached to a treatment machine called an afterloader which is a computerized robot that will run a miniature radiation source about the size of a tip of a pencil lead into those hollow. The first treatment is done that afternoon. Then patient stays overnight in the hospital at bed rest. The next morning we do treatment number two and that afternoon, a few hours later, treatment number three. Then all the catheters are removed and the patient is discharged home. For low risk disease, that process is repeated one week later. So, there's two overnight stays in the hospital. That procedure is the equivalent of a radical prostatectomy, or nine weeks of external beam radiation. The results are equal and excellent across the board. If the patient has more advanced disease, we can combine the high dose rate brachytherapy with external beam radiation or with hormone suppression.
