  • chemotherapy
  • Recurrent focal brain stem gliomas may be treated with surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy or a combination of these treatments. (cancer.ca)
  • Chemotherapy drugs used for recurrent focal brain stem gliomas include carboplatin (Paraplatin, Paraplatin AQ) and vincristine (Oncovin). (cancer.ca)
  • pons
  • Most brain stem tumors develop in the pons and grow in a part of the brain stem where it can be difficult to perform surgery, making brain stem glioma challenging to treat (see the Treatment Options section). (cancer.net)

  • tumours
  • Radiation therapy is the most common treatment for diffuse brain stem gliomas because most of these tumours cannot be removed with surgery. (cancer.ca)
  • recurrent
  • Operating on elderly patients with gliomas, as well as those with recurrent disease, is still controversial but is becoming more common due to advances in adjunct technologies. (springer.com)

  • There is no standard treatment for recurrent diffuse brain stem gliomas. (cancer.ca)
