EARLY STAGE PROSTATE CANCER RADIOTHERAPY WITH OR WITHOUT NEOADJUVANT ANDROGEN DERIVED THERAPY TREATMENT OUTCOMES ON PELVIC FLOOR MUSCLE FUNCTION

Presenter: Osmotherly PG

This module addresses:

Question: Will pelvic floor muscle training improve urinary and bowel

outcomes in men receiving radiotherapy with or without hormone therapy

treatment for prostate cancer?

Conclusion: Men in the ADT intervention group showed significant

improvement in average squeeze pressures at follow up measurements

providing support for the efficacy of the intervention.

Key Practice Points:

• Evidence of bowel symptoms over time following radiation and hormone

treatment.

• Increasing survival rates raise issues of long-term quality of life.

• Pelvic floor muscle training may improve functional outcomes and quality

of life.
