Functional outcomes of partial prostate ablation and focal therapy: Are we managing expectations of a bar set too high?
Neoplasm Recurrence, Local
Ultrasound, High-Intensity Focused, Transrectal
Outcome measures from prostate ablation have served to partially address some patient short-term goals of treatment and to support the further development of these approaches. More specific data to understand the long-term outcomes, goals and expectations for functional recovery that may be specific to each treatment modality are needed.
