- Public TitleFeasibility of MRI-guided focal salvage high-dose-rate brachytherapy for locally recurrent prostate cancer
- Scientific TitleFeasibility of MRI-guided focal salvage high-dose-rate brachytherapy for locally recurrent prostate cancer
- hypothesisThe purpose of this study is to evaluate toxicity and feasibility of MRI-guided focal salvage high-dose-rate brachytherapy (HDR-BT) in patients with locally recurrent prostate cancer. In comparison with whole-gland salvage techniques, focal salvage is expected to reduce toxicity, while maintaining cancer control.

- Brief summaryProstate cancer recurrence after primary treatment is common, despite improvements in primary curative treatment modalities. Various salvage treatment modalities, like radical prostatectomy, low-dose-rate brachytherapy, external beam radiotherapy, HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) and cryosurgery have been investigated. However, because of high failure and high toxicity rates, these treatment modalities remain unpopular. High failure rates can be reduced by excluding patients with a high risk for early distant metastasis. In these patients, local salvage treatment will not be of any benefit. High toxicity rates can be explained by the fact that salvage therapy is often performed on the entire prostate, which induces accumulation of a high irradiation dose on normal tissues. To reduce the burden of a high radiation dose on normal tissues, focal therapy is warranted. This can be achieved with MRI-guided focal salvage HDR-BT (high-dose-rate brachytherapy). In the past, focal salvage treatment has not frequently been explored, since determination of exact tumour location was not precise. Currently, our radiotherapy centre has a MRI HDR-BT facility, allowing MRI guided catheter placement and treatment. With this facility, catheter placement can be done far more accurately, which makes focal treatment possible. Due to the steep dose fall-off, low radiation doses will be expected in the surrounding healthy tissues. Therefore, less toxicity to the organs at risk is expected. In earlier studies, salvage HDR-BT has been shown to be feasible. Moreover, results regarding toxicity are promising. Therefore, we expect that MRI guided salvage treatment by using HDR-BT will be of benefit in patients with recurrent prostate cancer.
