Abstract

Recurrent treatment-refractory brain metastases can be treated with modern adjuvant therapies such as laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT). Since previously radiated lesions may be indolent (treatment effect) or recurrent tumor, histological confirmation may be helpful. The authors present the utility of contemporaneous biopsy and LITT using intraoperative O-arm navigation in a patient who presented with multiple refractory metastases. The authors demonstrate the utility of O-arm navigation to confirm intraoperative biopsy and LITT placement. Concurrent stereotactic biopsy and LITT may be a safe and efficacious method for both the diagnosis and treatment of deep lesions that are unamenable to standard adjuvant treatment modalities.
