PURPOSE To evaluate treatment outcome of 3D conformal high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy and external beam irradiation (EBRT) combined with temporary androgen deprivation for patients with localized prostate cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between January 1997 and September 1999 we treated 102 patients with stage T1-3 N0 M0 prostate cancer. Stage T1-2 was found in 71, T3 in 31 patients. Median pretreatment PSA level was 15.3 ng/ml. After ultrasound-guided transrectal implantation of four… CONTINUE READING
