Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: We aimed to present our clinical experience in patients with recurrent LGG who underwent the fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (FSRT) with Cyberknife®.
Material and Methods: Ten patients with recurrent low grade glioma who had previously irradiated were treated with FSRT as a salvage treatment. At the initial diagnosis, the histology of the tumor was grade II astrocytoma or oligodendroglioma. Four of 10 patients underwent surgery as the primary treatment for recurrence.
Results: The median prescription dose was 24 Gy (range 21-25 Gy) with a median fractionation number of 4 (range, 3-5 fractions). No concurrent chemotherapy was administered except one with radiological tumor upgrading. The median interval between the first diagnosis and recurrence was 95 months (range, 45-191 months). From the time point of re-irradiation, median survival was 15 months (range, 1-30 months). CyberKnife® FSRT was well tolerated by all patients. No acute or late side effects were recorded. With a median follow-up of 17 months, 3 patients died. Seven patients were alive with local tumor control in 5 and tumor progression in 2 patients.
Conclusion: Fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy is a safe and effective salvage treatment for recurrent LGG. FSRT in adult recurrent LGGs showed encouraging short term results in this small number of cases. Prospective studies are necessitated as further evaluation.

Keywords: Cyberknife; radiosurgery; recurrent low grade glioma; re-irradiation; salvage treatment
