Men with localized prostate cancer recurrence following external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) may benefit from salvage therapy with high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), researchers reported in BJU International (2008; online ahead of print).

Of 31 men who had recurrence following EBRT, 71% had no evidence of disease following salvage HIFU after a mean follow-up of 7.4 months (range 3-24 months), according to investigators.
