Interstitial Hyperthermia

  • J. M. Cosset
Part of the Clinical Thermology book series (CLIN THERM)

Abstract

We can read in a document which was written 5000 years ago, and which is now known as the Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus, the following sentence: “One having tumors in his breast... which I will treat with the fire drill...” [20, 96]. This is perhaps the first report concerning an attempt to treat a cancer using some kind of interstitial hyperthermia.
