MA 13.09 - Toxicity and Second Primary Lung Cancers in Late Survivors Following Lung SBRT (ID 8410)
15:45 - 17:30 | Author(s): M. Guckenberger
There is a paucity of data on the long-term outcomes following lung SBRT. This impacts our understanding of late toxicity, relapse patterns and rates of second lung cancers. We report our multi-institutional outcomes of those who survived ≥5 years from lung SBRT treatment.
1192 patients were treated for primary non-small cell lung cancer, T1/2N0 from 5 international institutions. For those who survived ≥5 years from lung SBRT treatment details of patient factors, treatment and outcome factors were extracted from the multi-institutional database. All events were calculated from the end of radiotherapy. Local (LR), regional (RR), and distant metastases (DM) and toxicity events after 5 years are reported. New cases of metachronous lung cancers after 5 years are reported. Univariable analyses was performed to determine factors associated with survival ≥5 years.
Of 1192 patients there were 182 (14%) ≥5 year survivors. Only 52 (8%) survived ≥ 7 years and 2 (0.2%) ≥10 years. Those surviving ≥5 years were younger (74.3 vs 71.5 years; p<0.01) and had better FEV1 (55% vs 65%; p<0.01) than those that did not survive 5 years. The Charleston Comorbidity Score was 1.4 (0-12) vs 2.1 (0-7) (p<0.001) in those who survived < vs ≥5 years. Those who survived <5 years had a trend to larger tumors (2.4cm vs 2.3 cm; p=0.07). Of the 182 patients 23 (13%) were operable, 67 (37%) were <70 years old at treatment, 115 (63%) were ECOG 0-1 and 156 (86%) had peripheral tumor location at time of initial diagnosis. 84 (46.2%) were T1a, 60 (33%) T1b, 33 (18.1%) T2a and 5 (2.7%) T2b. After 5 years there were 13 new events of grade ≥ 2 toxicity. These toxicities were 4 grade 2 fatigue, 1 grade 2 rib fracture, 7 grade 2 chronic myositis and 1 patient with grade 2 chronic myositis and fatigue. In this 182 patient cohort, after 5 years, there were 3 local recurrences, 2 regional failures and 5 distant failures. After 5 years follow-up there were 22 (12%) new primary lung tumors in the 182 patients (and 20 had a subsequent lung SBRT treatment).
Late survivors after SBRT require dedicated follow-up as they remain at risk for second lung cancer, tumor recurrence and toxicity. Second cancers in these late survivors can be considered for SBRT treatments.
