© ABC-press Publishing House. All rights reserved. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. Radical prostatectomy (open, laparoscopic, or robotic) remains the main method of surgical treatment for prostate cancer. However, minimally invasive therapies for prostate cancer are becoming increasingly popular in recent years, because they have similar efficacy as open surgery. The most studied minimally invasive therapies are cryoablation, high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), and brachytherapy. Despite the minimization of damage to neighboring structures, minimally invasive procedures can cause a number of complications, like any other surgical interventions. Each method has specific limitations and the most typical complications. Since multiple minimally invasive methods are currently available, we can ensure an individual approach to each particular patient, thus using the advantages of the methods and avoiding possible complications. This article covers the most frequent and severe complications of minimally invasive therapies for prostate cancer, as well as the methods of their prevention and treatment.
