Abstract

PURPOSE: To assess the contribution of Italian radiation oncologists in the current management of recurrent high-grade gliomas (HGG), focusing on a reirradiation (reRT) approach.METHODS: In 2015, the Reirradiation and the Central Nervous System Study Groups on behalf of the Italian Association of Radiation Oncology (AIRO) proposed a survey. All Italian radiation oncologists were individually invited to complete an online questionnaire regarding their clinical management of recurrent HGG, focusing on a reRT approach.RESULTS: A total of 37 of 210 questionnaires were returned (18% of all centers): 16 (43%) from nonacademic hospitals, 14 (38%) from academic hospitals, 5 (13%) from private institutions, and 2 (6%) from hadron therapy centers. The majority of responding centers (59%) treated ≤5 cases per year. Performance status at the time of recurrence, along with a target diameter
