Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We review 190 consecutive patients with 434 metastatic tumors treated by gamma knife stereotactic radiosurgery, from August 1994 to February 1999. Median actuarial survival for all patients was 34 weeks. Factors correlated with significantly improved survival included controlled systemic disease and nonmelanoma histology. We found that no significant survival benefit could be discerned from adjuvant whole brain radiotherapy in this patient group. Survival was not statistically different for patients initially presenting with 1-4 metastases at initial treatment.
