Welcome to Volume 3, Third issue, of Everyday Urology - Oncology Insights. In this issue, the applicability and utility of SpaceOAR® Hydrogel will be reviewed as well as the trials that led to its regulatory approval. SpaceOAR was designed as a means of diminishing rectal radiation toxicity. With a phase III trial reporting a decrease in acute and long-term rectal toxicity, as well as an enhanced patient, reported quality of life outcomes, SpaceOAR is quickly being adopted as a component of prostate cancer radiotherapy.
