Stereotactic radiosurgery reduces stroke risk in patients with small unruptured brain AVMs

Stereotactic radiosurgery reduces stroke risk in patients with small unruptured brain AVMs​ Heather Wood Nature Reviews Neurology 12, 313 (2016) doi:10.1038/nrneurol.2016.63 Published online 22 April 2 Brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) carry an elevated risk of stroke, but therapeutic intervention in individuals with unruptured AVMs can sometimes do more harm than good. A new retrospective study… Read More Stereotactic radiosurgery reduces stroke risk in patients with small unruptured brain AVMs

Single brain metastasis: Radiosurgery alone compared with radiosurgery plus up-front whole-brain rad

Abstract BACKGROUND: Neurosurgical resection is considered the standard treatment for most patients with a single brain metastasis. However, radiosurgery (RS) is a reasonable alternative. It was demonstrated that whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT) in addition to RS improves local control of 1-3 brain metastases. Little information is available regarding WBRT in addition to RS for a single… Read More Single brain metastasis: Radiosurgery alone compared with radiosurgery plus up-front whole-brain rad
