Abstract

Treatment with radiosurgery prevents neurocognitive decline associated with whole-brain radiotherapy. After review of data of 38 patients treated with radiosurgery for brain metastases from metastatic renal cell carcinoma, the local control at 1 year was 92%. There was no difference in survival on the basis of number of brain metastases. With therapeutic advancements, a greater number of patients might be candidates for radiosurgery.
