Soft constraints.

Can prostate radiation be optimized to reduce post-treatment erectile dysfunction? In this single-center trial, 117 patients receiving conventionally fractionated radiation (74-80 Gy in 37-40 fractions) for low to intermediate risk prostate cancer were randomized to standard IMRT planning or erectile tissue sparing IMRT with the use of specific constraints for the penile bulb and corporal bodies. The corporal bodies are just lateral to the penile bulb on axial imaging. The penile bulb and corporal body constraints were D90 <15 Gy and <7 Gy, respectively. Nobody received ADT. Prior to enrollment, all patients were “potent” meaning they were able to achieve satisfactory erections >50% of the time. At 24 months after treatment of patients with complete follow up evaluation, there was no difference in the somewhat disappointing rate of preserved potency with erectile tissue sparing IMRT (48% v 46%). There was also no difference in the rate of PDE5 inhibitor use after RT (42% v 35%). | Zhang, Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 2022


  1. Big thanks to Mr Mark Toray one of the best binary options managers who have the best strategy and signals that can help you win every time you trade... before meeting him I was scammed several times and I lost $28,000 to 2 different managers who claim they are real but turn into monsters the moment I fund my trading account but today I'm so grateful to Mr Mark Toray for coming to my rescue. I started trading with them with just $2000 to test the system, they help me trade with my deposit and after 7 working days I made a withdrawal of $20,300. I was so amazed with the profit earned I posted this to those who are already given up on binary and Forex options and to the newbies take advice and be saved.. if you contact him tell him I referred you so that I will have my referring bonus.... you can contact him via or telegram @mark4toray_fx You will be glad you did it.
