BACKGROUND Because results of retropubic I-125 implantation for prostate cancer have been poor, external beam radiation was added postimplant. Serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) was used to assess this approach of combined irradiation. METHODS Two hundred and thirty-nine patients with clinical Stage T1 or T2 but surgically node-negative prostate cancer were treated. Results were monitored by serial serum PSA evaluation. Positive clinical findings or a rising PSA level defined recurrent… CONTINUE READING
