Key clinical point: Hypofractionated radiation therapy (RT) is a safe and efficient treatment strategy in patients with oligometastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
Major finding: In five studies, single-dose RT was used to treat patients with RCC and extracranial metastases; 89% of patients achieved local control, median overall survival (OS) was as high as 21 months, and severe RT-related toxicity occurred 0%-4% of the time.
Study details: A literature review of radiation therapy for RCC.
