Remission rate is associated with higher dose of Gamma Knife Radiosurgery (GKRS; Gamma Knife: Elekta AB, Stockholm, Sweden) for acromegaly, but the dose ≥25 Gy is not always feasible when the functioning adenoma is close to optic apparatus.

Little is known about the long-term efficacy, prognostic factors and tolerability of gamma knife radiosurgery (GKS) for acromegaly. The aim of this study is to investigate long-term hormonal effects, ...
The number of metastases that can be treated safely and effectively with Gamma Knife® stereotactic radiosurgery (GKSRS) remains controversial despite continuing evidence to support its expanded utili...
We retrospectively analyzed treatment efficacy and identified prognostic factors impacting tumor control and survival in patients with brain metastases from cancer of unknown primary (CUP) treated wit...
The use of Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) for recurrent or residual Vestibular schwannoma (VS) after microsurgery (MS) has been investigated in several retrospective studies. The purpose of this stud...
In this study, the investigators hypothesize that upfront gamma knife radiosurgery with drug therapy is superior in the treatment of growth hormone-secreting pituitary tumors after primary...
The purpose of this study is to examine effects (good and bad) of gamma knife radiosurgery for essential tremor. The gamma knife places a small lesion in the brain to suppress tremors.
Gamma GBM is a single-arm phase II trial that prospectively measures the progression-free survival time after addition of an early gamma knife boost to areas of residual tumor to standard-...
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is increasingly applied in patients with brain metastases (BM) and is expected to have less adverse effects on cognitive functioning than Whole Brain Radiat...
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy, of treating patients with recurrent glioblastoma using Gamma-Knife Radiosurgery (GKS) to target a tumor volume defined by a combination...
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)
Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.
The ratio of the dose that produces toxicity to the dose that produces a clinically desired or effective response.
