Abstract: These results further demonstrate the increasingly significant role played by STRS in the treatment of pineal tumours. Based on our findings, we believe a re-examination of the role of more established therapies for this patient group may be warranted.

“…Alternatively, SRS is used increasingly to treat PPTs. Recent studies reported excellent long-term LTC and survival in patients with PPTs, especially with PCs after SRS, mostly at adjuvant or salvage settings and occasionally at upfront setting ( Table 2 ) 12 16 20 25 26 30 31) , suggesting SRS may be a useful alternative or adjunct to surgical resection. In extension from these observations, we elected SRS as a primary therapeutic modality after histologic confirmation of PPTs other than PBs and achieved LTC and survival in all patients except for one instance of CSF seeding metastasis.…”

“…Furthermore, it is still unknown whether or not complete resection could provide a cure for PPTIDs, as PPTIDs of higher histologic grade are potentially more aggressive than PCs. In this background, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) can be considered as a safe alternative or adjunct to surgery for local tumor control (LTC) and has been reportedly effective and safe in treating PPTs 16 20 25 26 30 31) . Since 1997, we elected SRS as a primary therapy following CSF diversion and biopsy for PPTs other than PBs in adults, and nine consecutive patients have been treated accordingly.…”

“…Some sporadic cases of CH have been described as late complications of cerebral radiation. 4 5 Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), initially introduced by Leksell, 6 is now widely applied to patients with various brain lesions, including primary brain tumors, 7 8 metastatic lesions, 9 10 and vascular malformations. 11 12 Some patients who receive SRS develop a localized vascular, tumor-like lesion at the treatment site, months or even years after treatment.…”
