Original Title: Radioterapia corporal estereotáxica en neoplasias de pulmón
Authors' recomendations: CONCLUSIONS Moderate-quality evidence suggests that stereotactic body radiotherapy improves overall survival in patients with nonsurgical early-stage non-small cell lung cancer when compared with other radiotherapy modalities. Moderate-quality evidence suggests that stereotactic body radiotherapy does not show benefits in overall survival in patients with surgical early lung cancer when compared with surgery. Very low-quality evidence does not allow drawing conclusions on stereotactic body radiotherapy usefulness in patients with lung metastases compared with surgery or other radiotherapy modalities. All the clinical practice guidelines assessed recommend stereotactic body radiotherapy treatment in patients with nonsurgical early-stage lung cancer. Latin American public health sponsors, do not mention stereotactic body radiotherapy coverage in patients with lung cancer. Private and public United States health sponsors cover it for eligible patients with nonsurgical lung cancer.
