To the Editor: The article by Dr D'Amico and colleagues1 presents a relatively unbiased analysis of biochemical outcome in a series of 1872 patients treated with several different types of local therapy at 2 institutions. Even though the study is retrospective, the lack of randomized trials addressing this issue gives this work greater significance in helping to define the optimal management of this disease.
