Between 1984 and 1991 86 patients with single cerebral metastases underwent linear accelerator radiosurgery using the atraumatic and reproducible Greitz-Bergström head-fixation device. Routine one-month follow-up documented disappearance of the tumour in 16 patients, with resolution of the oedema and ventricular shift. Shrinkage of the metastasis occurred in 51 patients. In 9 patients the tumour remained stable, in 7 there was progression of tumour size. Among the patients showing shrinkage of… CONTINUE READING
