2022 Medicine Grand Rounds | Radiotherapy for Renal Cell Carcinoma - Renaissance of An Overlooked Approach
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has previously been thought of as a radioresistant disease. Until recently, the application of radiation treatment has been largely palliative. Previously there was a paucity of therapy available for RCC. Now there are novel modalities such as stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), which makes it easier to treat. It is essential to stay abreast of such important updates, in order to achieve and deliver appropriate care, in an effort to improve patient quality of life.
Medical oncologists, urologists and radiation oncologists.
- Outline the appropriate settings in which to use radiotherapy in renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
- Review the definitions of oligoprogressive disease.
- Examine which systemic therapy strategies best synergize with radiotherapy in RCC.
- Discuss emerging trials that will shape the use of RCC and SBRT in concert.
- Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
