    摘要: BACKGROUND: Gamma knife radiosurgery is a safe and effective alternative to microsurgery in the management of selected intracranial lesions. In our initial three-year experience with gamma knife radiosurgery, 431 patients were treated using this method. This report presents the treatment results for three different types of brain tumors: benign meningiomas, malignant metastases and gliomas. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed to analyze a consecutive series of 71 meningiomas, 31 metastatic tumors and 21 gliomas treated by gamma knife radiosurgery between March 1993 and May 1996. The treatment results were investigated using regular magnetic resonance examinations and tumor volume measurement at six-month intervals to observe sequential changes of the tumors. Patients with meningiomas were further divided into three groups according to the peripheral radiation doses: high-dose (20-17 Gy, n = 18), medium-dose (16-15 Gy, n = 33) and low-dose (14-12 Gy, n = 20). The Generalized Estimation Equation was applied to compare treatment results in these three groups with different doses and tumor volumes. RESULTS: Volume measurements of the 71 meningiomas showed that 76% decreased in size, 16% stabilized and 8% increased in size. The volumes increased most frequently in the early stage (6-12 months) after treatment and subsequently regressed after the twelfth month. The tumor control rate for meningiomas in our three-year follow-up was over 90%. For meningiomas, the statistical analysis showed that both the radiation dose and tumor volume were significantly related to the development of adverse radiation effects (p < 0.05). In metastatic tumors, rapid tumor regression after radiosurgery was found in 87% of the patients. In gliomas, radiosurgery effectively inhibited tumor growth in selected patients with small, circumscribed, less infiltrative tumors. Ependymomas and low-grade astrocytomas had more favorable outcomes than other gliomas. CONCLUSIONS: Gamma knife radiosurgery is effective for controlling tumor growth in benign meningiomas for up to three years after surgery. In selected cases of malignant metastasis and gliomas, most patients appeared to benefit from the treatment with symptomatic improvement and prolonged survival. Treatment strategy and dose selection in radiosurgery should be adjusted to optimize tumor control and avoid adverse radiation effects.
