Ultrasound treatment for prostate cancer without pain or surgery High Frequency Ultrasound Therapy for Prostate Cancer. It is possible through this technique to treat prostate cancer Non-invasive, focused ultrasound without the need for an incision.
This method is one of the most important treatments focused on early tumor in recent years.
Prostate positioning In recent years, there has been a great development in the treatment of cancer diseases.
Radiation devices have also witnessed a great development that has allowed their use in the treatment of diseases prostate cancer Perhaps the most important method is the high-intensity focused ultrasound method.
How does ultrasound therapy work in prostate cancer treatment?
As it is known, the ultrasound device is used medically in imaging devices, where the sound waves generated by the ultrasound probe are transmitted to the tissues, which in turn absorb or reflect these waves according to the nature of the tissue, then the reflected sound waves are analyzed and converted into an image.
The passage of sound waves directed at the tissues generates heat energy, but when the waves are focused on one point, the heat energy increases more, which leads to the burning of cells at the target point and the elimination of cancer cells, meaning that the burning place is just a focal point on which the ultrasound waves were focused without Burning occurs in the cells through which the waves pass.
Doctors were able to take advantage of this feature in destroying cancer cells, and with regard to prostate cancer, the probe that is inserted through the anus and directed towards the prostate gland and then determines the places that will be targeted through a computer program.
How is the ultrasound treatment of prostate cancer performed?
is applied Technology Under general or lumbar anesthesia, where the doctor inserts a special probe into the rectum that emits high-energy ultrasound waves that are controlled and directed through a computer program. As a result of the sudden and strong absorption of the waves, a temporary increase in temperature occurs at the target point (85 to 100 degrees Celsius). , which leads to the destruction of cells in the target area.
Each focus in the sound waves (shot) targets an area with a length of 22 mm and a width of 2 mm in an oval shape, and the shots are repeated and change the focal points through the computer and the connected robot, which enables us to destroy all areas of cancer and thus get rid of Prostate tumor.
What are the advantages of high-frequency ultrasound treatment that you offer to patients?
As mentioned above, modern robotic focal therapy involves treating only the location of the tumor and not the entire prostate.
The most important features of the operation is that it is not an open surgery, so its complications are not like surgery.
Which greatly reduces the side effects that can result from open surgery and also reduces the recovery period, and the advantages can be summarized as follows:
- Targeting cancer cells without harming the surrounding organs and cells.
- Avoid exposure to the harmful effects of radiation.
- Reducing the length of stay in the hospital.
- The treatment can be applied in one session and can be done in more than one session if necessary.
- If the patient is not able to complete the treatment for any reason, a transition to alternative treatment is available for the patient.
Follow-up after surgery
Where it is sufficient to take a test for the level of PSA (Used for early detection of cancer, as it is secreted from the gland in hyperplasia and benign prostate cancer) in the blood regularly for a period of three months.
But in some cases, an MRI of the prostate gland or even a biopsy is needed if necessary.
Who are the people who can undergo ultrasound treatment?
Patients who can treat prostate cancer with ultrasound are:
- stage prostate cancer patients T2. T1.
- Patients who cannot undergo radical prostatectomy either via android Or through conventional surgery due to age or the presence of another pathological obstacle.
- Men who prefer minimally invasive surgery.
some Studies Long-term follow-up of prostate cancer treatment with high-intensity focused ultrasound HIFU In Turkey there is a high overall survival rate for a cancer patient as the success rate is very close to the success rate of cross-country treatment.for robotic surgery.
In addition, an exceptionally high rate for patients with early-stage cancer is close to 98%.
Using advances in high intensity focused ultrasound technology. Clinical practice can now be used with Transurethral resection of the prostate TURP It helps in the complete ablation of the prostate of any size without any metastases.
