HyTEC 2111 - Head and Neck Tumor Control Probability: Radiation DoseeVolume Effects in Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for Locally Recurrent Previously-Irradiated Head and Neck Cancer: Report of the AAPM Working Group (2018)

Category: HyTEC

In a systematic review of the available literature addressing the dose/volume data for tumor control probability with SBRT in patients with locally recurrent previouslyirradiated head and neck cancer, data from more than 300 cases in 8 publications suggest that there is a doseeresponse relationship with superior local control and possibly improved overall survival, for doses of 35 to 45 Gy (in 5 fractions) compared with <30 Gy. Stereotactic body radiation therapy doses equivalent to 5 fraction doses of 40 to 50 Gy are suggested for retreatment.
