Abstract 5295


Colorectal cancer (CRC) is among the leading causes of death and oligometastases present a dilemma in treatment options. If treated, CRC with oligometastases can show improved survival. Our study aims to evaluate predictive factors associated with survival when treated with stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT)


A total of 125 metastases in 50 patients were treated with SBRT. Oligometastases was defined as up to 5 lesions in lung in proven primary histopathology of CRC. Survival outcomes in terms of local control (LC), progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS) were assessed along with association of various predictive factors associated with survival outcomes.


Among the 50 patients, Lung was the most common site of metastases (52.5%), followed by liver (34%). Thirty patients had received prior systemic therapy in the form of chemotherapy. Median follow-up time was 24 months (6-84 months). The LC rates at 1, 3 and 5 years were 96%, 72% and 69%, respectively. The first site of failure was local only in 20%, distant only in 34%, and local and distant in 16% of the patients. Median PFS was 9.8 months. The overall survival at 1, 3 and 5 years was 87.2%, 62.3%, and 41.4%, respectively. On assessment of predictive factors, metastases more than 3 cm (p = 0.012), presence of non-lung metastases (p < 0.001) and progression of treated metastases (p = 0.021) predicted for worse overall survival. Multiple lung metastases and synchronous oligometastatic disease were significantly associated with worse PFS and worse metastases-free survival. On toxicity assessment, no grade 3 toxicities were found in the cohort


Stereotactic body radiation therapy leads to longer survival of patients witholigometastases in CRC and is a proven treatment modality. Treatment and control of oligometastases predicts for improved overall survival. Further prospective cohorts would better evaluate effective fractionation of patients with oligometastatic CRC.
