Improvement in urinary retention due to recurrent anastomotic prostate cancer treated with various therapies by intra-arterial infusion of cisplatin and ifosfamide - Abstract

Although many treatments have been applied to treat hormone-refractory prostate cancer (HRPC), therapeutic outcome is not altogether satisfactory.

In the case of locally recurring HRPC, uncontrolled gross hematuria, dysuria, and scalding are often experienced. We report a patient who improved following intra-arterial infusion of cisplatin (CDDP) and ifosfamide (IFM) to treat urinary retention caused by locally recurring HRPC. After chemotherapy, cancer volume was remarkably reduced and symptoms improved.
