Congress of Neurological Surgeons Systematic Review and Evidence-Based Guidelines on the Use of Stereotactic Radiosurgery in the Treatment of Adults With Metastatic Brain Tumors

This clinical practice guideline is part of a series of guidelines for the management of adult patients with newly diagnosed metastatic brain tumours, excluding radiosensitive tumour histologies. The guideline examines the use of stereotactic radiosurgery for the treatment of these patients. Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is compared with other treatment modalities, and the guideline also discussed the role of SRS after open surgical resection of brain metastasis, and the role of SRS alone for the management of patients with one to four brain metastases.
