Repeat radiosurgery for those with persistent acromegaly

Takeaway

  • Among those with acromegaly who do not achieve tumor remission or endocrine control after stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), a repeat SRS resulted in tumor remission in most and endocrine control in about half.

Why this matters

    There are limited treatment options for those who do not respond to SRS and a repeat procedure offers a reasonable risk to benefit profile.
