Purpose/Objective:
In 2006 the Mayo clinic published their experience in salvaging postprostatectomy failure in patient (pts) with psa>/=0.1ng,85% of whom were treated solely with radiotherapy (RT). They derived a prognostic algorithm that predicted success of salvage RT based on pathological stage, grade and preRT psa. We sought to evaluate the applicability of this system in a patient population treated with combined RT and hormone therapy.
