Brief Summary:
This trial is comparing the effects and safety in treating men with prostate cancer between irreversible electroporation and radical prostatectomy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Prostate Cancer Treatment Procedure: Focal therapy(Irreversible Electroporation) Procedure: Radical prostatectomy Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Four hundred and thirty-eight patients with localized prostate cancer will include in this study. The clinical trial validation process will be as follows: (1) all patients are randomly divided into two arms: arm 1, irreversible electroporation; group 2, radical prostatectomy. The primary outcome is the 5-year free tumor progression rate.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The 5-year free tumor progression rate [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    The percentage of all treated patients whose tumors did not recur within 5 years 1.For Irreversible electroporation: detect tumor after treatment by each of the followings: prostate biopsy, mpMRI, ECT, PSMA-ECT or PSMA-PET 2.For radical prostatectomy: detect tumor after treatment by each of the followings: mpMRI, ECT, PSMA-ECT or PSMA-PET of treatment

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Urinary incontinence [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    the rate of urinary incontinence

  2. urination function(IPSS scoring) [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    evaluation of urination function by IPSS scoring

  3. sexual function (IIEF-5 scoring) [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    evaluation of sexual function by IIEF-5 scoring
