Different nonsurgical therapeutic strategies can be adopted for intraprostatic relapse of prostate cancer after primary radiotherapy, including re-irradiation (with brachytherapy [BT] or external beam radiotherapy [EBRT]), high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), and cryotherapy. The main issues to consider when choosing nonsurgical salvage local therapies are local tumor control and significant genitourinary toxicity.

Name: European urology oncology
and purpose: To assess the efficacy and safety of salvage stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) in patients with biopsy-proven local prostate cancer recurrence after radiotherapy.
Whether focal therapy (FT) for prostate cancer (PC) jeopardizes outcomes from salvage treatments is a matter of debate still to be resolved.
Whether focal therapy (FT) jeopardizes subsequent prostate cancer (PCa) salvage treatments, when needed, remains a major concern and is largely unknown.
Salvage lymph node dissection (sLND) for nodal recurrence in prostate cancer (PCa) patients with biochemical recurrence (BCR) is still not recommended in current guidelines, because of the diagnostic ...
Many trials are evaluating therapies for men with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC).
Despite continuous technical improvements in urologic surgery, up to 40% of prostate cancer patients will develop biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy (RP), potentially becau...
Radiation therapy is considered a standard treatment option for the management of localized prostate cancer. Among the 20-30% of patients who recur, there is no consensus on the optimal sa...
A dose-response relationship for radiation in the management of prostate cancer is well established. Local recurrence of prostate cancer after external beam radiotherapy occurs in at least...
A proportion of prostate cancer (PCa) patients develop relapse following curative local treatment. Regional nodal recurrence is an emerging clinical situation since the introduction of new...
To provide a systemic, uniform and user-friendly tool for collection of data on prostate cancer salvage cryotherapy in a multicenter setting. The goal is to learn more about the short and...
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
A synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
An alternative to amputation in patients with neoplasms, ischemia, fractures, and other limb-threatening conditions. Generally, sophisticated surgical procedures such as vascular surgery and reconstruction are used to salvage diseased limbs.
Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
