This study compared neurosurgical resection followed by whole-brain irradiation (WBI) with WBI followed by radiosurgery (WBI + RS) in 152 patients with a single brain metastasis. The less invasive regimen of WBI + RS resulted in significantly better local control of the treated metastasis, whereas survival was not found to be significantly different in both groups.
