It is most often the result of multiple intersecting etiologic factors, including the use of whole brain radiation therapy, effects of which, in part, are mediated by damage within the hippocampus. A variety of clinical factors and comorbidities may impact the likelihood and severity of this cognitive decline, and affected patients should be considered for evaluation in a comprehensive neuro-rehabilitation or “brain fitness” program.
Prevention strategies of neurocognitive decline due to whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT): Avoiding WBRT is warranted for some patients with brain metastases; particularly those },
