Abstract

Stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) have led to a resurgence of the use of radiotherapy in the management of advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC). These techniques provide excellent local control and palliation of metastatic sites of disease with minimal toxicity. Additionally, SBRT to the primary tumor may be efficacious and well tolerated in select patients that are not surgical candidates. Emerging data suggest that SBRT may potentiate the immune response, and current and future study will evaluate if SBRT can improve survival outcomes in patients with metastatic RCC.
