The study was about whole gland HIFU, which is why toxicity is so high. It was published earlier this month, which is why I'm familiar with it. Here's an abstract:
Medium-term Outcomes after Whole-gland High-intensity Focused Ultrasound for the Treatment of Nonmetastatic Prostate Cancer from a Multicentre Registry Cohort
Wow, if that is the study that article is actually referencing, it's almost like they were making stuff up out of thin air. I see NO reference to any 93% five year cure rates. That study also allowed redo HIFU, which I assume means repeat HIFU treatments? That would seriously skew the results at least in my view. Bad reporting for sure.
