The electronic survey provided below is to assist patients in obtaining initial information on the possibility of using NanoTherm ® Therapy (NTT) to treat a brain tumour in their case.
The results of the survey in question do not guarantee any particular medical assessment, nor a positive decision on being qualified to undergo this therapy.
Being qualifiable to undergo NTT may be assessed solely by a specialist physician, after submitting all the required medical data to a clinical centre named at the end of this survey.
The provider of this website disclaims any responsibility for the results of the survey in question, nor does he require and file any personal data or information on the state of health of a patient.
Since 2011, all the components of the System of NanoTherm ® Therapy have had the CE (‘European Certification’), and, ipso facto, this therapy has been officially approved of for the purpose of treating brain tumour in all the countries of the European Union.
NanoTherm ® Therapy consists in injecting a fluid having magnetic properties, which is then heated up with the use of a very rapidly changing magnetic field, into a tumour. The impact of the generated heat destroys neoplastic cells or sensitises them to further treatment methods such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy, which improves their effectiveness. However, it is extremely important that all metallic materials located within no more than, approximately, 40 cm from the brain tumour, must be removed
or replaced with non-metallic materials as they would otherwise also be heated up.
The presence of metallic elements in / on patient’s body if these cannot be removed or replaced is one of the exclusion criteria of conducting NanoTherm ® Therapy.
Answers to the questions hereinabove will allow you to obtain information on the possibility of conducting the therapy.
A device generating electrical impulses artificially stimulating the cardiac muscle
Cardioverter-defibrillator, commonly referred to as an ICD, is a device able to diagnose a life- threatening arrhythmia and restore regular heart rhythm
Neurostimulator is a surgically-implanted stopper-size device. It sends gentle electrical signals to the epidural space near the spinal cord through at least 1 input cables (special-purpose wires). These electrical signals ‘mask’ backache and pain in the legs replacing it with pleasant tingling
(usually made of metal and used to stabilise bone fractures)
