Radical prostatectomy (RRP) and external-beam radiation therapy (EBRT) plus androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) provided similar long-term cancer control for patients with high-risk prostate cancer, although the risk of all-cause mortality was greater after EBRT plus ADT than after RRP. The authors concluded that continued investigation into the differing impact of treatments on quality-of-life measures and noncancer mortality will be necessary to determine the optimal management approach for these patients.
