OBJECTIVES To compare the efficacy and safety of transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) with ProstaLund Feedback Treatment, using the CoreTherm device, with transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) 5 years after treatment. METHODS This prospective, randomized, multicenter study was conducted at 10 centers in the United States and Scandinavia.(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the outcome, assessed as the level of prostate specific antigen (PSA), of a mature (more than half the events recorded) prospective randomized study with a median follow-up of 82 months of neoadjuvant hormonal therapy before radical prostatectomy, as this has been suggested to decrease the rate of positive surgical margins (i.e.(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the outcome of a microwave thermotherapy feedback system that is based on intraprostatic temperature measurement during treatment (ProstaLund Feedback Treatment or PLFT) with transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) for clinical benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in a randomized controlled multicenter study. The safety of the two(More)
PURPOSE Hormonal treatment administered before radical prostatectomy has been shown to decrease the rate of positive surgical margins. We determine whether preoperative hormonal treatment has any impact on the subsequent failure rate. MATERIALS AND METHODS We prospectively evaluated 122 patients with stages T1bNxM0 to T3aNxM0, grades 1 to 3 prostate(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the outcome of neo-adjuvant hormone treatment before radical prostatectomy regarding local tumour extension, peri-operative blood loss and operation time. PATIENTS Of 111 surgically treated patients with prostate cancer (T1b-T3a, N0, M0, G1-3), 55 were randomised to immediate radical prostatectomy and 56 to 3 months of(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare, in a prospective randomized multicenter study, the efficacy and safety of transurethral microwave thermotherapy with ProstaLund Feedback Treatment (PLFT), using the CoreTherm device, with transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) 36 months after treatment. METHODS The study was conducted at 10 centers in the United States and(More)
