High-activity 125I interstitial irradiation in the treatment of pediatric central nervous system tumors: a pilot study.

Abstract

Malignant pediatric tumors of the central nervous system (CNS) have a poor prognosis, with local failure rates as high as 50%. In an attempt to improve local tumor control, we used stereotactic interstitial therapy with 125I implants in patients with recurrent/secondary or newly diagnosed CNS malignancies. Catheters were placed using computed tomography (CT… (More)
