Benefits of Neo-Adjuvant SRS Versus En Bloc Resection
- Event: 8th International Conference of the Novalis Circle 2018
- Topic: Brain Metastasis
- Year: 2018
Anthony Asher, MD, from the Neuroscience Institute, Atrium Health Care System, Charlotte, US, discusses evolving paradigms in the management of cerebral metastases and how that relates to defining the role of surgical therapies in combination with other treatment modalities. He begins by outlining the societal impact of cerebral metastases and the current therapies offered, including radiation therapies (Whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS)), surgery and targeted therapies and immunotherapy. Dr. Asher explores in depth the forms of adjuvant radiotherapy: WBRT and preoperative as well as postoperative radiosurgery. He then discusses in more detail neo-adjuvant radiosurgery using case examples.
