TREATMENT CONSIDERATIONS 

GammaTile Therapy is intended to deliver radiation therapy in patients with newly diagnosed malignant brain tumors and recurrent brain tumors. The potential for, and symptoms of, adverse events related to radiation exposure vary depending on the radiosensitivity of the exposed tissue, the amount of radiation delivered, and the placement of GammaTile(s). Serious side effects related to GammaTile Therapy are rare, and may include radiation brain changes including necrosis. GammaTile Therapy should not be used for patients with known history of hypersensitivity to bovine-derived materials. Possible complications can occur with any neurosurgical procedure, including cerebrospinal fluid leaks, infection, delayed hemorrhage, and adhesion formation.
