Spanish term or phrase:tratamiento de segunda opción

I've found the English phrase "second-option treatment" as a possible translation for this, but I only come up with 126 hits in Google. It seems that I should get more hits for something like this. Is there a better or more commonly used phrase in English? Thanks for the help!
