Barnes-Jewish Hospital to Provide Gamma Knife Surgery to Additional Patient Groups With New Elekta Technology

"Extend represents additional growth in our capability and flexibility to meet patient needs with specialized radiation therapy," says Joseph R. Simpson, M.D., Ph.D., co-director of Barnes-Jewish Hospital's Gamma Knife of St. Louis.

While single fraction Gamma Knife surgery excels in treating small malignant and benign lesions and those in less critically located regions in the head, Extend captures treatment indications in which a hypofractionated approach has the potential for a better clinical result. For example, in cases in which a small tumor abuts a critical structure, physicians can use Extend to provide a greater anti-tumor effect over repeated treatment fractions (i.e., treatment sessions).

Another promising use of Extend at Barnes-Jewish Hospital will be glomus jugulare tumors, according to Dr. Simpson. Glomus jugulare tumors grow along the jugular vein, eroding the bones of the skull, where nerves are located. Often these tumors extend too far below the skull base to be reached with a frame-based Gamma Knife approach.
