We report the technical aspects and outcome results of a minimally-invasive focal treatment using laser ablation under MRI guidance and monitoring to treat localized low-intermediate risk prostate cancer while preserving the rest of the gland. 14 treatment-nave foci of localized prostate cancer were treated with MRI-guided and monitored focal laser ablation. The technique is feasible and well tolerated as an outpatient procedure. This small series indicates a promising efficacy for up to 24-month recurrence-free follow-up durations. Prospective assessment of safety and efficacy awaits further evaluation on a larger cohort of subjects.
