      • Abstract

      Stereotactic radiosurgery is a less invasive therapeutic modality for brain metastasis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We retrospectively reviewed a single institutional experience using Cyberknife radiosurgery (CKRS).

      The patients diagnosed with brain metastasis of NSCLC who were treated with CK-RS from 2006 to 2016 in Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital were analyzed. Total 304 targets from 150 patients were included. The histology of NSCLC patients was as follows: adenocarcinoma (85%), squamous cell carcinoma (9%), and others (7%). Median 22 Gy (range: 17-30Gy, 1-8 fx) was given. Median 2 targets (range: 1-7 targets) were treated per patient. Whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) was given to 44.7% of the patients. Total 68 patients (45.5%) were mutation positive and targeted therapy was given to 95 patients (63.3%).

      Median follow-up time was 11.4 mo (range: 0-94.6 mo) from the last day of CKRS. Response to CKRS was observed in 86.1% of the targets. Median time to response was 2.9 mo (range: 0.2-58.8 mo). At the time of analysis, there were 14 recurrences (4.6%) and median time to recurrence was 13.3 mo (range: 4.1-62.6 mo). Intracranial failure defined as appearance of new metastasis other than sites previously treated with CKRS was observed in 81 patients (54.7%) at median 8.9 mo (range: 7-10.8 mo). The 1-year intracranial failure rates of the patients who received targeted therapy were 64.8% versus 55.3% of those who did not, respectively (P = 0.38). The 1-year intracranial failure rates of the patients who received CKRS alone were 64% versus 58.3% of those who received both CKRS and WBRT, respectively (P = 0.58). Radiation-associated change on MRI was observed in 98 targets (32.3%) at median 7.0 mo (range: 0.4-68.8 mo). Eleven patients (7.3%) required steroids for symptom alleviation at median 21 days (range: 7-42 days). Five patients (3.0%) underwent surgery after median 7.0 mo (range: 2.8-74.2 mo). The patients survived median 12.6 mo (range: 0.3-94.8 mo) after CKRS.

      According to our institutional experience, CKRS achieved adequate local control with tolerable toxicity in patients with brain metastasis of NSCLC.
