Efficacy and tolerance of salvage radiotherapy after radical prostatectomy with emphasis on high-risk patients suited for adjuvant radiotherapy.

Another look at salvage vs. adjuvant. Contains some probabilities of being free from progression at 5 years post SRT. For patients with no extracapsular penetration, pre-RT PSA less than 1.0, and positive margins, the 5 year biochemical free survival was 89%. The same probability for high risk patients was 78%, about the same success rate as reported for adjuvant RT.
