Distant intracranial recurrence rate (a), overall local tumor control rate (b) and local tumor control rates stratified according to the tumor volume (TV) (c). Six-month and 12-month distant intracranial recurrence rates (per patient) were 17% and 25%, respectively. Six-month and 12-month local tumor control rates (per lesion) were 94% and 89%, respectively. TV larger than 2 mL was the only factor predicting a higher rate of local control failure (HR: 12.8, P = 0.003)
