Rhabdomyosarcoma treatment in Israel

Rhabdomyosarcoma develops from a transversely striated (skeletal) muscle and is a colony of modified muscle cells (myocytes). In a result of a number of successive divisions, tumor elements are simplified and become similar to embryonic cells (precursors of muscles) that are rabdomioblasts. The longer the tumor does not being treat, the worse the prognosis for life is as there is the higher risk of metastasing and organ damage around tumors.

In two-thirds of cases, rhabdomyosarcoma affects the children up to 10 years, mainly boys (girls’ rate is in 2 times lower). Overwhelming majority of the illness cases (90%) is up to the age of 25 years.

Types of rhabdomyosarcoma:

  • embryonic rhabdomyosarcoma is typical for children and it affects the head and neck;
  • alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma develops mainly in adolescents. It affects the large skeletal muscles (quadriceps, triceps, back muscles);
  • botryoid rhabdomyosarcoma affects the muscle wall of the internal organs (vagina, urine bladder).

Cost of rhabdomyosarcoma treatment in Israel?

Only in Israel

  • assistance is provided by experts of global renown;
  • there are specialized clinics for the treatment of various types of sarcomas; Diagnosticians and oncologists of Israel know all the peculiarities of this type of tumors;
  • they use the most up-to-date diagnostic equipment;
  • excellent survival rates and curability of patients;
  • all-day care, patient and family support programs.
70% is an average survival index.
90% of full recovery by early treatment.

Causes of rhabdomyosarcoma

Major risk factors contributing to the development of rhabdomyosarcoma:

  • the irradiation of a mother or a child, especially during pregnancy;
  • concomitant genetic abnormalities as Li-Fraumeni syndrome, albinism or neurofibromatosis. The process is more common for children with a giant melanocytic nevus;
  • constant contact with carcinogens (including food) and toxic substances.

Rhabdomyosarcoma usually develops in people with immunodeficiency. People infected with HIV, TB, children with any form of anemia are the most vulnerable. It is necessary to pay attention to the children previously treated with chemotherapy. In some cases, rhabdomyosarcoma develops after leukemia.

Symptoms of rhabdomyosarcoma

  • some tumors above the skin surface. They are painless and aren’t red; subdermal formation is dense and elastic;
  • after a while, there is some pain due to compression of the nerve endings by growing tumor;
  • bleeding and ulceration of sarcoma may occur;
  • regional lymph nodes are increased;
  • weakness is developing, the body weight is decreasing. There may be some intestinal dysmotility, nausea, loss of appetite.

Depending on the location of the main tumor, the disease manifests itself as follows:

  • unilateral exophthalmos (proptotic eyes) due to the location of rhabdomyosarcoma in the orbit;
  • blood-tinged discharges from the ear canal when the tumor is in the middle ear;
  • nose bleedings, nasal congestion when the tumor is in the nasal passages;
  • scrotal edema, blood in semen;
  • blood in the urine, the symptoms of cystitis (painful urination, pain шт lower abdomen) when the urine bladder wall is affected.

The symptoms at different stages of rhabdomyosarcoma:

Stage 1

Stage 2

nearly invisible tumor, no local reactions

visible (subdermal) tumor, some pain, redding

Stage 3

Stage 4

intense pain, enlarged lymph nodes

damage and dysfunction of organs, metastasing

Rhabdomyosarcoma diagnostics in Israel

  • the main method of rhabdomyosarcoma diagnostics is an MRI. The method allows to precisely localize the process, its relationship with the surrounding structures. Tumor is located deeply in the soft tissues and is not very different from the structure, so radiographic techniques are less effective;
  • MSCT for metastases screening and localization;
  • PET-CT for the determination of small foci of metastasis;
  • Ultrasound is used as a preliminary screening. As a rule, ultrasound is used with Doppler sonography;
  • scintigraphy is used for the diagnostics of bone metastases;
  • biopsy is used to determine the type of tumor. it does not only confirms the diagnosis, but also affects the intensity and duration of chemotherapy (it determines the invasiveness of the process and makes prognosis);
  • searching for tumor markers in the blood helps to confirm the ongoing process if there are difficulties in finding the primary focus.

Methods of rhabdomyosarcoma treatment in Israel

Israeli oncologists achieve excellent results even with common processes (3A-B stage):

  • surgical treatment. The entire tumor or most of it is removed (if the complete excision is not possible), as well as regional lymph nodes, and concerned tissues and organs;
  • chemotherapy of rhabdomyosarcoma. Israeli chemotherapists use innovative combinations of cytostatics and hormones, that increases the sensitivity of the tumor to treatment. On the 4th stage of the disease it is the main method. Targeted chemotherapy helps to achieve the maximum concentration of drug in the tumor body;
  • radiation therapy is applying in 2 months after chemotherapy. The impact is produced on the operated area of the body. With rhabdomyosarcoma of the central nervous system, radiation therapy is applied before chemotherapy;
  • transplantation of bone marrow stem cells. It is used due to destroying own stem cells by the necessary for the treatment doses of chemotherapy. When transplantation is possible, your doctor may significantly increase the dosage of chemotherapy drugs with no hesitating of subsequent complications such as aplastic anemia.

Review: a four-month-old infant with rhabdomyosarcoma

When my son was 4 months, doctors have found rhabdomyosarcoma. We had conducted 4 courses of chemotherapy and two surgeries, then aplastic anemia began. The doctor said that haemopoiesis was disrupted and we needed a bone marrow transplantation.

After the examination of relatives, it turned out that my brother can be a bone marrow donor. We have conducted stem cell transplantation.

Now the boy is 2 years old, he is often sick, but there are no tumor signs anymore. We take drugs (necessary for normal functioning of the transplanted bone marrow).”

Rehabilitation after rhabdomyosarcoma removal, prevention of recurrence

Prediction for patients depends on the process stage. Even at the 4th stage, the five-year survival rate exceeds 30% (alveolar form of the disease). Careful attention to a patient after surgery and intensive chemotherapy allows to achieve full cure in 70% of all patients with rhabdomyosarcoma.

It is recommended to make regular visits to the oncologist (every 2 months during the first year after surgery) and periodic screening of tissues:

  • in the area of the removed tumor;
  • plain radiography of thoracic organs;
  • liver ultrasound.

Two recent studies allow quick identifying metastases in the process expansion.

Cost of rhabdomyosarcoma treatment in Israel

  • The cost of treatment is 20% lower than in Switzerland, the USA and Germany (the national average);
  • Bookimed company helps to avoid payment of intermediaries, that significantly reduce the overall cost of treatment;
  • High level of service due to which the patient and his/her family receive all the necessary support during treatment and the rehabilitation period.

The patient was treated of bladder cancer

The clinic, in the category "like - do not like", I can not evaluate. Meeting at the airport with an interpreter and transfer to the clinic - standard. Accommodation in the guest house, before the operation, leaves much to be desired. But, who is familiar with India, I do not think for special comfort and does not count, otherwise - to Germany. Immediately the next morning, without delay and delay, a primary appointment with doctors and diagnosis. Prices for a visit from doctors, examinations and tests are very reasonable, commensurate with Moscow or, even lower. Communication with doctors through an interpreter is somewhat difficult, but quite informative and understandable. Knowledge of English will remove all embarrassment, but in general - not critical. The attitude of doctors to the examination and refinement of the diagnosis is "meticulous". After five days - a summary and proposal for a treatment program. Hospitalization, surgery, 3 days in the intensive care unit and postoperative placement in a two-bed room (together with an attendant) for 12 days. And an extract. The level of training, skill and attitude of doctors, from my "ambitious" point of view of the accompanying person, is beyond praise !!! About the surgeon who performed the operation - DR. MURUGANANDHAM K, I want to say that he has "golden hands and heart" !!! The attitude of the average medical personnel, despite the language difficulties, is very friendly. In the intensive care unit was invited immediately after the operation and "woke up" the patient with me. Opening his eyes and seeing his native face after anesthesia - a person "comes alive"! Postoperative treatment and care in the ward are very worthy. Having repeated his own experience in hospitalization, I can not even compare. The account is not in our favor. In fact, treatment in the clinic saved life! This is especially evident now, a year after the treatment. A year ago, options were considered: Germany, Israel and India. In terms of price-quality ratio and recall of acquaintances have chosen treatment in India. And they were not mistaken. The clinic was selected by specialists of the site en.bookimed.com. They also provided a correlation and communication with the clinic. Huge thanks to them !!!

The patient was treated of kidney cancer

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank Professor Gross, as well as all the staff of the Asclepios clinic in Hamburg for their high professionalism, efficiency, sensitivity and attention to patients. About a month ago left an application on the site bookimed, within an hour I was contacted by coordinator Katerina, immediately offered several clinics specializing in oncourology. The choice fell on Asclepios in Hamburg, in particular, Professor Gross. Within a week, thanks to Katerina's efforts, prof. Gross, determined the tactics of treatment and already in a week there was immediate operation. There were some doubts that the nephrectomy could be performed laparoscopically, but the golden hands of prof. Gross know their business. The postoperative period went smoothly, recovered quickly. During the week of the stay, there were no complaints about the work of the staff: attentive, sensitive and affable. Conditions are more than comfortable. The language barrier was not a problem due to the well-coordinated work of the translators Lydia Goncharenko and Vladimir Fissenko. Separately, I want to once again express my gratitude to coordinator Katerina, who was always in touch, quickly resolved all sorts of difficulties.

The patient underwent hip replacement

I went through the replacement of the hip joint in the MALVASINKA Clinic with subsequent rehabilitation from 18.03.2018 to 11.04.2018. After finding the house for 4 weeks, he systematized his initial and final impression. His stay and the quality of treatment, rehabilitation in the Clinic Malvazinki would like to appreciate in the following way: 1. PLUSES: - Excellent operating surgeon Vladislav Hospodar; - Excellent and very professionally attentive physiotherapist Dana Braxova; - Responsive nurses, especially Andrea. 2. MINUSES: BASIC FAT MINUS - ASSISTANCE OF CONSERVER TRANSFERS UNDER THE IMMEDIATE THE MANAGEMENT OF OLGA SKATKOVA (Olga SKATKOVA) - As it is written in one of the previous reviews - "Everything is almost fine before it paid off.  Then no one has anything to do with you! "- I absolutely agree, after leaving all my letters completely  were ignored by the concierge O. Skatkova, despite the status of "Delivered" and "Viewed." - In particular, the extract / anamnesis was issued without translation, although the coordinators of the clinic promised that  the translation will be sent in 2-3 days after discharge, without results, wait a month (!!!!!). After 3 weeks of waiting and inquiries received a short answer that they have "force majeure" without any specifics when the translation of the statement will be made, and the time allowed for the registration of the disability goes and it is not my dimensionless,  I no longer see the point in writing. A reference image sent after 6 weeks after the operation (on the recommendation of the clinic's specialists, to determine the progress of rehabilitation and the time when it will be possible to refuse crutches) was sent last week, just after a 6-week period, as ordered, see the result above - the status of the message to O. Skatkova "Delivered" and "Viewed" the reaction is ZERO. The subsequent reminder of the picture and the translation of the extract is still left without any answer. - If "According to the rules of the clinic, concierge-interpreters visit every patient for 1-2 hours a day for  translation into Russian of a doctor's visit and individual physiotherapy, "then there were days when they did not visit me at all or came to me  with a significant delay (in particular - Elena), which entailed the admission or reduction of rehabilitation procedures, changing the schedule, etc. - The rehabilitation is rather weak, at first there were only 2 procedures a day, physiotherapy individual and group, after my repeated  requests, during the third week of stay, more procedures were added, however it was already the final week and, for example, a massage duration of 10 minutes a session, was only 2 times for the entire period of rehabilitation. I recommend to all who plan treatment, to keep this moment under the control and remind the concierges about the need to add to the schedule of additional procedures, for some reason they themselves are not particularly concerned about this, despite the rather large, in general, cost of rehabilitation. Two of my friends have already refused treatment in this clinic, after my recall, in favor of German clinics, where although slightly and more expensive, but the services are performed in full and without extra reminders.
