"Local control and disease free survival rates achieved with HIFU were similar to those expected with conformal external beam radiation therapy with at 10 years a specific and metastasis survival rate of 98% and 94% respectively. HIFU can be repeated when necessary and is not a therapeutic impasse: it can also be associated to a salvage radiation therapy, which will lead to excellent prostate cancer control results."
