Radiation therapy has been become a popular treatment option for the treatment of localized prostate cancer (PCa). Unfortunately, a number of patients fail treatment. Salvage radical prostatectomy has been the most established therapeutic option for locally recurrent PCa; however, the operation is technically difficult and not without significant morbidity. Salvage cryoablation has emerged as an increasingly popular minimally invasive alternative with comparable safety and efficacy profiles. In this chapter, we focus on recent oncological and functional outcomes, as well as patient selection and potential complications of salvage cryotherapy for radiorecurrent PCa.
