Forty-four patients with brain astrocytoma and glioblastoma were treated with surgical resection and postoperative radiation from January 1980 through May 1987. Four patients were lost to follow up, and in 40 patients sruvival time was evaluable. Three year actuarial sruvival rate was 66.7% in Grade I and II astrocytoma, 30% in Grade III, and 20.4% in glioblastoma multiforme patients. The prognostic factors affecting survival rate were histologic grade in all cases, age, and total radiation dose in Grade III and glioblastoma.
