In the NEJM
An update to the Scandinavian randomized trial of Prostatectomy vs Watchful Waiting appears in the NEJM this week. Very useful for it's delineation of the natural history of early stage prostate cancer and the expected results with radical local therapy. Of course, it is impossible to know what the results of brachytherapy or EBRT would be in comparison to RP; nonetheless, it gives one ballpark numbers when counseling patients on their options.
