Irreversible Electroporation for Prostate Cancer as Salvage Treatment Following Prior Radiation and Cryotherapy

Salvage treatment options after localized primary treatment failure of prostate cancer are limited and associated with risk for serious complications.

Therapeutic and functional outcomes were assessed by conventional means, including serum prostate-specific antigen values and prostate biopsy results.
