We retrospectively evaluated the survival of patients with brain metastases from advanced gastric cancer (AGC) after radiosurgery (RS). Between 1998 and 2007, a total of 11 patients (median age, 61 years; range, 36–70) were diagnosed with brain metastasis from AGC and treated with RS. Each of five (46%) patients had two brain metastases. The median volume of the 16 lesions was 2.9 cm3 (range, 0.1–33.8). The median marginal dose prescribed was 20 Gy (range, 10–25) at the 50% isodose line. RS was… CONTINUE READING
