Abstract

Low dose rate brachytherapy (LDR) is an accepted treatment, effective and with few side effects at the local level, which is used as monotherapy in patients with low-risk prostate cancer. There are solid data that show local control and survival rates similar to those of other techniques such as external radiotherapy or radical surgery, with a lower risk of genitourinary and gastrointestinal side effects. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this work is to analyze 245 patients treated with this technique in the Radiotherapy Oncology Service of Gomez Ulla Hospital, from 2004 to 2016, we will eval-uate the relationship of the dosimetric parameters with the biochemical and local failure as well as the genitourinary and gastrointestinal toxicity derived from the technique. We will discuss if the results obtained are comparable to those reported in literature...
