Comparing the Morbidity of HIFU to CYRO After Failed Radiation Therapy

Currently, there are a number of different treatments used to treat recurrent prostate cancer when the primary treatment had radiation has failed. In this situation surgery is considered very difficult and can only be successfully performed by an experienced surgeon, so alternative treatments are often considered. Long-term data about the success of these alternative treatments has not yet matured, however we do have some insight into the immediate morbidities caused by some of them. A group of researchers compared the morbidity of whole gland salvage ablation using cryotherapy (CRYO) as well as high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for radio recurrent prostate [...]
