Conclusions:
Patients with a minimum D90 of 180 Gy had outstanding local control based on PSA control and biopsy data. The absence of late failures with extended follow-up suggests durable tumor control. The toxicity profile, particularly long-term urinary and sexual function, was excellent and demonstrates that D90 doses ≥180 Gy are well tolerated.
