Authors performed a stereotactic radiosurgery with multiple noncoplanar convergent photon beams of linear accelerator (NELAC-1018 18MeV, NEC) using a specially designed Yeungnam localization device for two patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme. One patient had 2cmsized and the other 4cm sized mass on the CT images. After single session of treatment with 15 and 20 Gy, headache was improved in a few days after radiosurgery with no remarkable untoward reactions. Our experience with these two patients were encouraging and we found that our localization device, which is easily adjustable and inexpensive, could be a valuable tool for stereotactic radiosurgery particularly in the treatment of recurrent brain tumor.
Key Words: Recurrent brain tumor, Stereotactic radiosurgery, Yeungnam localization device, Linear accelerator
