OBJECTIVES To determine the probability of biochemical control for patients treated with salvage irradiation and identify prognostic factors associated with successful salvage. The optimal management of prostate cancer in patients with an elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level after radical prostatectomy remains unclear. METHODS We reviewed the records of 54 patients with node-negative prostate cancer treated with radiotherapy alone between 1991 and 1998 for isolated biochemical… CONTINUE READING
