Diagnosis: Stage IV DSRCT Liver tumors.
Hospital Primary Children's Medical Center, Salt Lake City, Utah
Passed Away: 10/26/97
- Revealed some form of small round cell tumor
- Physician Consultation with Dr Kushner
- 5 day course of ifosfamide and etoposide with mesna rescue
- P-6 (high dosage chemotherapy) protocol including 3 - 3 day courses of high dose CAV (cytoxan, adriamycin and vincristine), with stem cell harvest after the second course of the CAV.
- Debulking - Removed small part of the stomach and a small area on the side of the large intestine. Large tumor growing between the stomach and the large intestine that was too closely adhered to these areas to remove without removing large parts of the stomach and the large intestine. The surgeon stapled the stomach and the large intestine around the tumor and then removed the tumor. A small tumor about the size of a walnut was left on her colon where it turns to enter the anus. The only way to remove this tumor would have been to do a permanent colostomy.
- 2 Debulking - Hundreds of tumors 1 to 2 mm in size still on liver
Stem Cell Rescue
- Myelo-ablative chemotherapy - to kill off bone marrow
- Return own stem cells to rescue immune system
Total Body Irradiation (TBI)
