OBJECTIVE Adjuvant irradiation after resection of brain metastases reduces the risk of local recurrence. Whole-brain radiation therapy can be associated with significant neurotoxicity in long-term survivors of brain metastases. This retrospective study evaluates the role of tumor bed stereotactic radiosurgery as an alternative method of irradiation after initial resection of brain metastases to prevent local recurrence. METHODS Forty patients underwent tumor bed radiosurgery after resection… CONTINUE READING
