Long-term results of a protocol-based ultrasound-guided salvage brachytherapy as re-irradiation for local recurrent prostate cancer.

CONCLUSION: PDR salvage brachytherapy in local recurrent previously irradiated prostate cancer is efficient with low late toxicity. Salvage-brachytherapy represents a valuable therapeutic option for the treatment of previously irradiated locally recurrent prostate cancer. PMID: 32593646 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Only two of the six barriers identified directly related to having had PCa. With an increase in PCa survivorship, an active focus needs to be placed on the role that PA can have in helping maintain and improve both the physical and psychological health-related outcomes of PCa survivors.PMID:34788272

Conclusions: Salvage focal CT may delay the use of ADT in locally recurrent prostate cancer after RT and offers an alternative for eligible patients. The technique was feasible with acceptable perioperative morbidity and acceptable midterm oncological outcome.Urol Int

J Clin Med. 2021 Oct 24;10(21):4920. doi: 10.3390/jcm10214920.ABSTRACTBladder outlet obstruction following treatment of pelvic cancer, predominantly prostate cancer, occurs in 1-8% of patients. The high incidence of prostate cancer combined with the long-life expectancy after treatment has increased concerns with cancer survivorship care. However, despite increased oncological cure rates, these adverse events do occur, compromising patients' quality of life. Non-traumatic obstruction of the posterior urethra and bladder neck include membranous and prostatic urethral stenosis and bladder neck stenosis (also known as contrac...

CONCLUSION: HIFU treatment was associated with acceptable oncological and fair functional outcomes in patients with localized PCa. Moreover, PGA was associated with significantly better clinical outcomes, including the faster recovery of urinary incontinence and adverse effects.PMID:34756810 | DOI:10.1016/j.clgc.2021.09.003

ConclusionsThis multicenter single-arm objective performance criteria trial will evaluate the efficacy and safety of the use of high-frequency irreversible electroporation in treating prostate cancer.Strengths and Limitations of This StudyA comprehensive evaluation of imaging and histopathology is used to determine the effect of treatment. Questionnaires were used to assess the treatment side effects. Multicenter and pragmatic designs capacitate higher generalizability. A limitation of this trial is that the prostate biopsy as an endpoint may not be as accurate as of the specimen from prostate prostatectomy. Another limita...

ConclusionS-HIFU and S-RP could both be considered valuable LST options for patients with radiation-recurrent nonmetastatic PCa with sufficient life expectancy. S-RP is associated with more pad-dependent patients at 12  months.
