Salvage prostate cryoablation after primary interstitial brachytherapy failure: a feasible approach.
Salvage treatment for recurrent prostate cancer remains a very difficult and challenging field in urologic oncology. The introduction of minimally invasive surgical procedures such a targeted cryoablation brings some hope with its feasibility and efficacy to become a potentially curable treatment. We present the case of a 75-year-old male with prostate cancer treated primarily by brachytherapy, who developed late locally recurrent disease that was successfully treated with targeted salvage cryoablation.
