Radiosurgery: 6th International Stereotactic Radiosurgery by Douglas Kondziolka

By Douglas Kondziolka

The best way to steer clear of and deal with issues in stereotactic radiosurgery? the most up-tp-date and fascinating advancements in addition to crucial findings on refinements are released during this new quantity. It addresses themes similar to benign and malignant tumor radiosurgery, trigeminal neuralgia and headache, spectroscopic imaging, new checks, extracranial radiosurgery, and vascular malformations. The fine quality peer-reviewed experiences have been awarded via specialists of their box on the 2003 assembly of the overseas Stereotactic Radiosurgery Society. This booklet is of precise curiosity to neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, scientific physicists, neurologists, and oncologists, who require designated info to maintain updated with the real advancements at the use of stereotactic radiosurgery.

Nuclear physics is almost immediately experiencing a thrust in the direction of basic phy­ sics questions. Low-energy experiments assist in checking out past contemporary stan­ dard types of particle physics. the hunt for finite neutrino plenty and neutrino oscillations, for proton decay, infrequent and forbidden muon and pion de­ cays, for an electrical dipole second of the neutron denote a few of the efforts to check modern day theories of grand unification (GUTs, SUSYs, Superstrings, .

1). Target coverage ranged from 79 to 100%. The maximum dose to the spinal cord/cauda equina was determined directly based on the DVH for vertebral body and extra-axial lesions. Because all AVMs were contained within the intraspinal component, the maximum spinal cord dose to these lesions was assumed to be represented by the maximum dose delivered by the treatment plan. Complete dosimetric and volumetric data were available for 8 of 11 patients. Conformal avoidance of radiation dose spread to the spinal cord was largely achievable with vertebral body and extra-axial lesions (fig.

1% (n ϭ 95) of cases. 4%). The most common sequelae in descending frequency were headache (17), seizures (11), fluid retention and other steroid side effects (7 each) and neurologic change (7). Multivariate analysis did not show any single factor to predict for increased risk of sequelae. Conclusions: Approximately one-third of patients experience acute sequelae following radiosurgery, most of which are mild to moderate. Severe side effects are uncommon. None of the studied risk factors were predictive for increased sequelae.
