Abstract
A new modality of interstitial therapy to treat prostate cancer using photodynamic principles has been studied in a canine model. The effect of interstitial application of monochromatic light from an argon pumped dye laser at 630 nm was studied in a canine model. No significant hyperthermia was seen during the treatment. A concentric zone around the treatment fiber was seen during the treatment. A concentric zone around the treatment fiber was seen in PDT treated dogs and the maximum size was 18 mm. The data suggests that PDT may be clinically applicable in achieving tissue necrosis using interstitial light application in a solid organ like prostate.
