Cs-131 brachytherapy for patients with recurrent glioblastoma combined with bevacizumab avoids radiation necrosis while maintaining local control

Al's Comment:

 This is another option for patients with recurrent glioblastomas including those who already had re-irradiation.   The radiation seeds were popular years ago but had the side effect of a lot of radiation necrosis so it lost favor.  Now they tried it in combination with Avastin and found no radiation necrosis. This treatment is available to patients now.
