Cryoablation may help men whose prostate cancer recurs after radiation therapy (RT) avoid or delay retreatment with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), according to findings from a Fox Chase Cancer Center study.
The results indicate that local salvage therapy “should be considered for men with BCR to prolong ADT-free survival,” Joshi said during his presentation. He added that follow-up is needed to define the extent of the benefit that this approach would provide.
