Management of localized prostate cancer by retropubic radical prostatectomy
in patients after renal transplantation.
Quality of life after radical prostatectomy
or watchful waiting.
To our knowledge, this is the first work focusing on comparing the morphologic findings at radical prostatectomy
between GS 7 cases with and without pelvic [LN.
Addition of robotic surgery to an established laparoscopic radical prostatectomy
program: Initial impact of positive surgical margins [Abstract 351].
The value of serum prostate specific antigen determinations before and after radical prostatectomy
, on the other hand, is a major operation followed by weeks of recuperation and pain, not to mention occasional incontinence and an estimated 30 percent risk of impotence.
Surgeons who are not well-trained in radical prostatectomy
must be aware that they might experience a longer and more painful learning experience.
Perhaps what is more important for the average patient treated with radical prostatectomy
at our institution is the high negative predictive value of this genomic test.
Objective: Positive surgical margins after radical prostatectomy
for localized prostate cancer is a powerful predictor of PSA recurrence.
Clinicians use various tools, such as Partin tables or Kattan nomograms, to predict outcomes, including the pathologic stage or prognosis following radical prostatectomy
The yet-to-be-published main results of PIVOT offer a different take on the value of radical prostatectomy
from the recently published results of the Scandinavian Prostate Cancer Group Study Number 4 (SPCG-4), a pre-PSA-era trial that showed a significant overall benefit to surgery, even in men with tumors deemed to be low risk.
Washington, May 16 (ANI): Mayo clinic researchers have found that 80 percent of patients diagnosed with cancer that has spread beyond the prostate, known as cT3 prostate cancer patients, has 20 years survival rate if treated with radical prostatectomy
, or surgery to remove the prostate gland.
