Abstract

Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is a minimally invasive and safe surgical approach. An increasing number of individuals conform to SRS indications and select SRS as a substitute for traditional intracranial surgery. However, SRS still has deficiencies and side effects. Therefore, nurses must understand the mechanisms and side effects of SRS in order to provide appropriate clinical nursing intervention to reduce pre-treatment anxiety, understand SRS procedures and appreciate potential side effects. Such can be expected to improve patient quality of life during hospitalization and after discharge.
