American Urological Association (AUA) Clinical Guidelines Recognizes Cryotherapy as Treatment Option for Prostate Cancer Patients
Date:5/21/2008

being presented during the AUA annual meeting on Thursday, May 22, 2008 from 6-8 a.m.

A recently published retrospective study of primary prostate cryotherapy by Dr. Jeffrey Cohen reported 10-year follow up data with biochemical control comparable to external beam radiotherapy or prostate brachytherapy. The literature has also shown that advances over the last 10 years in cryoablation techniques have dramatically improved the morbidity profile.

New guidelines for the treatment of localized prostate cancer were released by the AUA in 2007 and emphasized communication with the patient regarding risk, treatment options, and potential outcomes. At that time, it was recognized that cryotherapy for the treatment of localized prostate cancer should be the topic of an AUA best practice policy.
