For most men, the initial thought after receiving their diagnosis centers on prostate cancer treatments. Fortunately, the options are many, though some therapies respond to various cancer stages better than others.

According to the American Cancer Association, prostate cancer affects one in six men in the U.S. and is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men. When caught and treated early, survival rates can be more than 90 percent, making swift treatment key.
Existing treatments however, can be limited and affect quality of life due to significant side effects, including loss of muscle mass, depression, decreased mental acuity and impotence. Now a High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) procedure, available in 33 countries outside the US including Europe, is being tested in US Phase III clinical trials. HIFU is a minimally invasive procedure that uses the Sonablate(R) 500 ultrasound device to destroy cancerous tissue with focused sound waves.

A minimally invasive interventional radiology treatment -- focal cryoablation that freezes prostate tumors -- proves as effective as surgery but without the side effects of sexual and urinary dysfunction. The so-called “male lumpectomy” can be considered a first-line treatment for patients of all risk levels. Instead of removing the entire prostate or using radiation on the entire prostate, interventional radiologists can find out where the cancer is and just destroy the cancer.
Interventional radiologists, using imaging for guidance, insert a probe through the skin that circulates extremely cold gas to freeze and destroy the cancerous tissue. Treating only the tumor instead of the whole prostate gland is a major and profound departure from the current thinking about prostate cancer.
Additionally, the use of a 3-D mapping biopsy provides superior information on the extent and grade of prostate cancer as opposed to the current standard TRUS biopsy.
ABOUT INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY
Interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments that offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to surgery.
News about the success of interventional cryoablation was released at the Society of Interventional Radiology’s Annual Scientific Meeting in San Diego.
