Visceral Malignancies

Part of the Recent Results in Cancer Research / Fortschritte der Krebsforschung / Progrès dans les recherches sur le cancer book series (RECENTCANCER, volume 4)


Experiments with the laser therapy of visceral malignancies have been done mostly with transplanted and spontaneous cancers in animals and with neurosurgery. At the National Cancer Institute, hepatomas in the Rhesus monkey have been treated by high energy neodymium lasers. The hepatomas showed good response and healing with laser treatment. McGuff and Henderson, in our Laboratories, have demonstrated excellent healing of liver impacts in animals after extensive coagulation necrosis by the laser.
