Late Effects of Treatment for Brain Tumors reviews the development of the medical team's awareness of late effects of brain tumor treatment and an overview of brain tumor survivorship. It reviews the late effects by topic and by organ systems, educates, and provides guidelines for follow up and interventions for patient survivorship. Advocacy for survivors and models for the importance of coordinated late effects programs are also discussed.
‘‘Death precludes late effects.’’ This attitude was our (and many others’) first introduction to the issues of survivorship, and reflected the Oncologist’s viewpoint of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Today, though neuro-oncologists are focused on increasing cure rates, we are increasingly aware that ‘‘the costs of the cure have a lifetime to be repaid’’ and, thus, our focus on late effects have taken on increased interest.
