To the Editor Hwang et al1 compared outcomes for men with prostate cancer treated with prostatectomy for those who underwent immediate adjuvant radiotherapy (ART) vs delayed radiotherapy (early-salvage radiotherapy [ESRT]). Using pooled data from 1566 patients with early-stage prostate cancer who were treated with prostatectomy, those who received ART had better outcomes than those who received ESRT.1 First, we need to highlight an error in the abstract Results incorrectly assigning prostate-specific antigen level descriptions of the ESRT and ART groups.
