PURPOSE Radiation therapy following resection of a brain metastasis increases the probability of disease control at the surgical site. We analyzed our experience with postoperative stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) as an alternative to whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT), with an emphasis on identifying factors that might predict intracranial disease control and overall survival (OS). METHODS AND MATERIALS We retrospectively reviewed all patients through December 2008, who, after surgical resection… CONTINUE READING
