Top Line: What is the ideal dose to the prostate fossa when delivering salvage radiation?

The Study: In SAKK 09/10, 350 men with biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy were randomized to receive 64 Gy in 32 fractions or 70 Gy in 35 fractions to the prostate fossa. To be included, they had to have a lowest post-RP PSA < 0.4 with two subsequent rises to a level > 0.1 but ≤ 2. The median PSA was 0.3, and 75% had PSA ≤ 0.5. The target was the fossa only with no nodal coverage as all patients had to be node negative using either CT (65%) or MRI (35%) before treatment. PTV dose was prescribed to median (D50%) with +7%/-5% heterogeneity. The full bladder wall and empty rectal wall were used as OARs with objectives of rectal wall V70<20% and V60<50%, bladder wall V65<50%, and femoral head V50<10%. The primary outcome, freedom from biochemical progression (FFBP) was defined as any PSA after treatment of 0.4 or higher and rising. This is important to note as there is great variation in how to define second biochemical progression after salvage RT. As previously reported in abstract form, there was no difference in median FFBP (8.2y @ 64 Gy, 7.6y @ 70 Gy) or the rate of FFBP at 6 years (62% vs 61%). There was no difference in the rate of late grade 2+ GU toxicity, but there was a significant increase in late grade 2+ GI toxicity with 70 Gy (22.3% vs 11.5%). Patient-reported quality of life metrics were no different between arms.

TBL: When delivering salvage prostate fossa radiation with no visible gross disease, SAKK 09/10 found that dose escalation from 64 to 70 Gy does not reduce the rate of subsequent biochemical progression and increases the rate of late grade 2 GI toxicity. | Ghadjar, Eur Urol 2021


  1. Hello to everyone out here, I am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me … My name is Susan Christian , I live in London, UK. we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Emu for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 24 hours my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Emu casted on him that make him come back to me today, me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Emu for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Dr Emu , if you need his help you can contact him through his private mail: or you can contact him through his website fb page Https://
