Abstract

An experimental study has been carried out by the authors on the effects of local-regional hyperthermia on bladder B.N.A. induced carcinoma of the dog, since 1966. The authors have observed complete disappearance in the animals of the mucosa and submucosal neoplasia, even after 6 years from the date of treatment. The sterilization of the neoplastic surface was checked by several histological sections from two excised bladders. As the results showed no negative secondary effects, the authors have started, since 1973, a clinical study of hyperthermic treatment of the bladder, vagina, female urethra and rectum stump carcinoma. Heat was obtained and introduced into the bladder by means of an apparatus specifically designed for this purpose; the double-circuit terminal probe supplies a thermocouple-controlled constant temperature. The cases so treated are presented together with a discussion on results obtained and problems faced.
