Réirradiations des carcinomes épidermoïdes des voies aérodigestives supérieures : indications et résultats

Abstract : Despite progress in the management of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), a significant proportion of patients previously irradiated for head-and-neck cancer will develop locoregional recurrence or a second primary. Because of the heterogeneity of this population with respect to disease-related factors (localization, volume, recurrence or second primary, time interval from previous irradiation.. .) and patient-related factors (comorbidities, sequelae of previous irradiation.. .), the optimal reirradiation treatment remains to be defined. Salvage therapy using reirradiation, despite some encouraging results, has historically been avoided because of concerns regarding toxicity. The results of more recent studies using contemporary treatment techniques and conformal delivery methods such as intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) or stereotactic radiotherapy (SBRT) have been somewhat more promising. The aim of this review is to discuss the reirradiation of HNSCC in terms of patient selection and modern radiotherapy techniques.
