Abstract

We assess erectile function after prostate brachytherapy. A total of 217 patients with permanent I-125 seed implantation for prostate cancer had erectile function assessed before and after treatment. Erectile function was assessed using the scoring system of 0; complete inability, 1; insufficient for intercourse, 2; suboptimal and 3; normal erectile function. Ages had a significant impact on pretreatment function. In 127 patients (56%) who were potent with a score 2 or greater before treatment the preservation of potency, with a score 2 or greater, was 74% for patients treated with radiotherapy alone and 67% for patient treated with neoadjuvant hormonal treatment. The potency rate gradually recovered within one year after hormonal treatment.
