10 YR Survival of Patient Treated with Stereotactic Gamma Knife Radiosurgery for Brain Metastases from Colon Cancer with Ovarian and Lymph Node Metastases



Case report open access

 Ten-Year Survival of a Patient Treated with Stereotactic Gamma Knife Radiosurgery for Brain Metastases from Colon Cancer with Ovarian and Lymph Node Metastases

 In this report, we present a case of multiple brain metastases, lymph node metastasis, and ovarian metastasis from sigmoid colon cancer treated with chemotherapies, surgical resection, and radiotherapy. The first brain metastatic lesions were treated with stereotactic Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKS). Because of the less invasive nature of GKS, recurrent brain metastatic lesions could repeatedly be treated with GKS and systemic chemotherapy could be administered. At the time of writing, in March 2016, the patient is alive, with neither neurological
nor systemic symptoms. The multidisciplinary therapy, including GKS, resulted in the patient’s survival for 10 years after the identification of the first brain metastases and survival for 13 years and 7 months after the sigmoidectomy.
