Surgery for spinal metastases remains the mainstay treatment for pain, instability, and neurological deterioration due to tumor infiltration of the spine. However, several new therapies are emerging which may improve outcomes further, and in some cases even replace the need for surgery. We now have a better understanding of which factors influence survival and quality of life after surgery, and this underpins the development and application of new treatments, and assessment of outcome.Depending on genetic subtyping of tumors, novel immunotherapies and chemotherapies may be very effective in prolonging quality of life...

Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is the accurate, conformal delivery of high-dose radiation to well-defined targets while minimizing normal structure doses via steep dose gradients. While inverse treatment planning (ITP) with computerized optimization algorithms are routine, many aspects of the planning process remain user-dependent. We performed an international, multi-institutional benchmark trial to study planning variability and to analyze preferable ITP practice for spinal robotic radiosurgery. 10 SRS treatment plans were generated for a complex-shaped spinal metastasis with 21 Gy in 3 fractions and tight constraints for spinal cord (V14Gy<2 cc, V18Gy<0...

OBJECTIVE: Stereoencephalography (SEEG) is a procedure in which electrodes are inserted into the brain to help define the epileptogenic zone. This is performed prior to definitive epilepsy surgery in patients with drug-resistant focal epilepsy when noninvasive data are inconclusive. The main risk of the procedure is hemorrhage, which occurs in 1-2% of patients. This may result from inaccurate electrode placement or a planned electrode damaging a blood vessel that was not detected on the preoperative vascular imaging...

BACKGROUND: Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is a childhood tumor with dismal prognosis. Emerging molecular signatures have paved the way for stereotactic biopsy in selected Centers. We present our experience in DIPG stereotactic needle biopsy using the Robotic Stereotactic Assisted system (ROSA™) in a consecutive pediatric series. METHODS: All stereotactic biopsy procedures for DIPG performed during the last year at our Institution were considered. All procedures were carried out using the ROSA™ surgical assistant through a precoronary approach...

PURPOSE: Although the metric precision of robotic stereotactic body radiation therapy in the presence of breathing motion is widely known, we investigated the dosimetric implications of breathing phase-related residual tracking errors. METHODS AND MATERIALS: In 24 patients (28 liver metastases) treated with the CyberKnife, we recorded the residual correlation, prediction, and rotational tracking errors from 90 fractions and binned them into 10 breathing phases. The average breathing phase errors were used to shift and rotate the clinical tumor volume (CTV) and planning target volume (PTV) for each phase to calculate a pseudo 4-dimensional error dose distribution for comparison with the original planned dose distribution...

BACKGROUND: Recent data suggest that intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) plus brachytherapy boost for unfavorable prostate cancer provides improved biochemical relapse-free survival over IMRT alone. Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) may be a less invasive alternative to brachytherapy boost. Here, we report the 3-year gastrointestinal (GI) and genitourinary (GU) toxicities of IMRT plus SBRT boost. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between March 2008 and September 2012, patients with prostate cancer were treated with robotic SBRT (19...

Intraoperative assessment of lead localization has become a standard procedure during deep brain stimulation surgery in many centers, allowing immediate verification of targeting accuracy and, if necessary, adjustment of the trajectory. The most suitable imaging modality to determine lead positioning, however, remains controversially discussed. Current approaches entail the implementation of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. In the present study, we adopted the technique of intensity-based 2D 3D registration that is commonly employed in stereotactic radiotherapy and spinal surgery...

PURPOSE: Robotic Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for lung tumors is treatment modality that, for cases of inoperable lung tumors, has shown excellent treatment outcomes. The typical photon energy when delivering this type of treatments is 6 MeV. In this work, using Monte Carlo simulation and realistic patient models we evaluate the characteristics of the absorbed dose distributions that result when x-ray beams of peak spectral energy of 220 keV are used to irradiate lung tumors assuming a robotic SBRT delivery mode...

INTRODUCTION: Diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas (DIPG) constitute 10-15% of all brain tumors in the pediatric population; currently prognosis remains poor, with an overall survival of 7-14 months. Recently the indication of DIPG biopsy has been enlarged due to the development of molecular biology and various ongoing clinical and therapeutic trials. Classically a biopsy is performed using a stereotactic frame assisted procedure but the workflow may sometimes be heavy and more complex especially in children...
