For patients with oligorecurrent prostate cancer, androgen deprivation therapy (ADT)–free survival was superior for those assigned to metastasis-directed therapy (MDT) versus surveillance, according to findings from a phase II trial published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

Following sPLND, investigators observed hypoesthesia of the genitofemoral nerve (n = 1), lymphorrhea (n = 1), and scrotal and penile edema (n = 1).
