Multi-Session Radiosurgery of Benign Intracranial Tumors NEUROSURGERY CLINICS OF NORTH AMERICA Yeung, J. T., Karim, S. A., Chang, S. D. 2013; 24 (4): 543-?


Multi-session stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) enables a high dose per fraction to be delivered to the tumor bed with rapid dose falloff that allows for sparing of critical structures, resulting in less radiation-associated toxicity. In this article, the authors review the basic concepts and techniques of multi-session SRS, indications for this technique, outcomes from single-session and multi-session SRS using 3 commonly treated benign intracranial tumors (meningiomas, vestibular schwannomas, pituitary adenomas), and discuss why multi-session SRS is an attractive approach for the treatment of these tumors.
