Magnetic resonance image-guided salvage brachytherapy after radiation in select men who initially presented with favorable-risk prostate cancer: A prospective phase 2 study
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Neoplasm Recurrence, Local
The current results indicated that MRI-guided salvage brachytherapy in men who are selected based on presenting characteristics and post-failure PSA kinetics can achieve high PSA control rates, although complications requiring surgical intervention may occur in 10% to 15% of patients. Prospective randomized studies are needed to characterize the relative cancer control and toxicity after all forms of salvage local therapy.
