Fifty-five patients with PSA failure were treated with salvage radiotherapy. Post-operative and postradiotherapy PSA failure was defined as the PSA elevation (nadir+0.2ng/ml) or the initiation of hormone therapy. The median follow-up period after salvage radiotherapy was 32 months (range ; l-67months). The 3-yrs biochemical free survival and overall survival rate was 66.7% and 100%. Result of salvage radiotherapy for post-operation PSA failure is good and only the dose was significant predictive factor (60Gy vs > 64Gy ; 53.9% vs 862%).
