PSA Doubling Time and Seminal Vesicle Invasion at the Time of Surgery Are Predictors for Successful Salvage Radiation

There was a recent Norwegian study which reviewed the impact of salvage external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) on post-prostatectomy patients. They evaluated long-term follow-up on biochemical-free recurrence (PSA only recurrence) (BFR) and metastatic-free survival. He study also described the pathological and clinical predictors of outcome. The study was conducted between 1987–2010. It included 76 men with [...]

Measuring the Efficacy of Salvage Radiation With and Without ADT *

A small study from one hospital in Norway has suggested that PSA doubling times after surgery may predict the value of salvage radiation therapy alone as a second line form of therapy. Servoll et al carried out a small retrospective analysis of data derived from 76 men treated by salvage external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) [...]
