Feasibility Study for Locally Recurrent Prostate Cancer Treatment Following Radiation Failure With High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
This is a feasibility study to determine the safety and the ability of HIFU (High Intensity
Focused Ultrasound)to selectively destroy prostate cancer tissue in men who demonstrate
local recurrence of prostate cancer following radiation treatment. All participants will
receive treatment with HIFU and be monitored closely for recurrence of disease (if
any),quality of life and adverse events.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
To determine the efficacy of HIFU in men with local recurrent prostate cancer following radiation therapy.
