Abstract

Transrectal microwave hyperthermia was applied to 46 stages D1 and D2 prostate cancer patients to treat urinary symptoms and local pain unrelieved by total androgen ablation therapy. Hyperthermia was administered in 10, 60- minute sessions twice a week for 5 weeks. A calculated intraprostatic temperature of 43.5 ± 0.5C was maintained throughout the treatment. At 2 years the mean residual urine volume was significantly decreased (p
