Survival Is Better With SRS Than With WBRT for NSCLC or Breast Cancer Metastases to the Brain

By

Longer survival was achieved with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) alone than with whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) in patients with fewer than 4 brain metastases from NSCLC or breast cancer.

Radiosurgery and close monitoring is recommended to better preserve cognitive function in newly diagnosed brain metastases.

Survival improved by stereotactic radiosurgery alone in adults under 50 years with limited brain metastases

By

Overall survival was improved for adults age 50 years and younger with brain cancer who were treated with stereotactic radiosurgery that was not combined with whole-brain radiotherapy.

Spine metastases can be controlled with tumor separation surgery and high-dose SRS

By

Tumor separation surgery followed by high-dose hypofractionated stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) or high-dose single-fraction SRS is safe and effective in controlling spinal metastases regardless of the radiosensitivity of the particular tumor type that has invaded the spine.
