AIM To generate an overall survival score for patients with kidney cancer who underwent radiosurgery for brain metastases. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-six patients who received radiosurgery alone for 1-3 brain metastases from kidney cancer were included. On multivariate analysis of a preceding study of such patients, Karnofsky performance score (KPS) and extracranial spread were significantly associated with overall survival and formed the basis for this score. For each patient, the… CONTINUE READING
