PURPOSE Treatment of cerebral metastases located inside the brainstem remains a challenge, as the brainstem is considered to be a neurological organ at risk, whatever the treatment strategy. We report a retrospective study of 30 consecutive patients treated in our institution between 2005 and 2007 with micromultileaf linear accelerator (LINAC)-radiosurgery for brainstem metastases, with reduced doses compared to those usually reported in the literature. METHODS AND MATERIALS Mean follow-up… CONTINUE READING
