Authors: Chandler Bronkema, Nikola Rakic, Firas Abdollah

Abstract

In men with localized prostate cancer (PCa), radical prostatectomy (RP) is often the treatment of choice and has shown exceptional long-term outcomes (1,2). In patients with adverse pathological features at surgery (positive margins, extracapsular extension, and/or seminal vesicle invasion), randomized trials recommend adjuvant radiotherapy (aRT) to achieve optimal disease control (3-5).
