Abstract

Historically, whole brain radiotherapy was administered to most patients with brain metastases. However, over the past three decades, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), targeted at individual cranial lesions, has been accepted widely. In this study, based on the authors’ experiences along with published data, recent trends in SRS for brain metastases are discussed. This article focuses on the following issues: 1) How many tumors can or should be treated with SRS? 2) Two-/three-staged SRS for relatively large tumors, 3) post-or preoperative SRS, and 4) repeat SRS.
