Abstract
Although cardiac metastases (CM) are more common than primary cardiac malignant tumors, they remain a rare localization of metastatic cancer. Until recently, CM were surgically treated as a palliative approach because of a lack of ablative solutions even for oligometastatic patients. Technological advances in radiation therapy (RT) in thoracic oncology have led to high precision delivery that enlarged the indications for stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). To date, there are limited reports of cardiac SBRT for CM. Herein, we report a cardiac SBRT performed in curative intent for a lung cancer patient metastatic to the heart.
