Brain Metastases 2.0: Expert Management Strategies and Challenging Cases
Course Overview

Brain metastases are commonly treated as a part of a general neurosurgical practice. Major changes in the management of brain metastases have occurred in the past decade. This webinar covers the management of brain metastases, including:

  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SR);
  • Post-SR Metastases;
  • Surgical Resection of BM from Eloquent Cortex;
  • Targeted Therapy; and
  • Case Presentations Discussing Different Management Strategies.

Principal Faculty

  • Jeffrey J. Olson, MD, FAANS
  • Andrew J. Fabiano, MD, FAANS
Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe advanced management strategies for brain metastases, including resection, stereotactic radiosurgery and immune therapy.
  • Describe complex stereotactic radiosurgical planning for large metastases, brainstem metastases and cavities before and after resection.
  • Diagnose and manage post-stereotactic radiosurgery (post-SR) brain metastases. 
  • Describe the advantages and shortcomings of neuroimaging techniques in evaluating post-SR brain metastases.
  • Develop an understanding of the role of corticosteroids, bevacizumab and craniotomy in the treatment of post-SR adverse radiation effect/radiation necrosis.
  • Describe the current literature on the role of immune therapy as a primary treatment for brain metastases.
