BARCELONA—In patients with previously irradiated locally recurrent prostate cancer, salvage high-dose-rate brachytherapy (HDRB) was an effective and safe treatment option. The 3rd ESTRO Forum (April 24-28, 2015) heard data from a retrospective analysis with 60 patients that found HDRB had acceptable late genitourinary toxicity after external beam radiotherapy. Study author Manuel Galdeano Rubio MD from Institut Català d’Oncologia discussed the findings with Oncology Times reporter Sarah Maxwell.
