Rationale: The standard treatment of RCC is (partial-) nephrectomy. Alternatives to this treatment are less invasive techniques like radio frequency ablation (RFA) and cryoablation (CA). Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is an alternative curative treatment modality, which has shown promising results in several North-American phase I-II studies over the last years. In this study, we aim to evaluate the safety and feasibility of SBRT for patients with inoperable RCC on a conventional cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) linear accelerator.
Objective: To evaluate safety and feasibility of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) with fiducial markers in inoperable patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
Study design: Single arm prospective study. Study population: Inoperable patients ≥ 18 years, with a pathology proven RCC fulfilling the inclusion criteria.
Intervention: Prior to treatment, patients will undergo fiducial marker placement (in combination with a biopsy, if RCC has not been pathology proven), followed by a contrast enhanced planning computed tomography (CT)-scan and a contrast enhanced MRI-scan. Fiducial markers will be used as this increases visibility of the tumor and therefore the accuracy of radiotherapy, particularly the irradiated healthy kidney tissue will be diminished by using this approach. Baseline toxicity and quality of life will be assessed.
SBRT using a VMAT technique will be delivered in five fractions of 7 Gy every other day. The target volume for treatment is defined on a 4D planningCT and MRI and the tumor is treated in the midposition of the breathing cycle. After treatment, follow-up will be at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months at the Radiotherapy department, followed by standard follow-up by the urologist. An additional contrast enhanced MRI scan will be performed after the 2nd treatment fraction, and after 6 and 12 months to assess treatment response to prepare for future MR-guided (MR-linac) radiotherapy. Toxicity and quality of life will be assessed during follow-up.
Main study parameters/endpoints: Newly developed acute toxicity grade 3 or more according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTC-AE) version 4.0.
The treatment is considered successful if all 5 treatments are completed and if in total <15% of the patients (=5 patients) report a toxicity ≤ grade 3.
Secondary endpoints will be treatment response, (late) toxicity assessment, local control rate and quality of life assessment.
