Therefore, in this study we sought to describe in detail the use of IHC in routine evaluation of prostate needle biopsy practice in a tertiary academic institution and to examine the quality assurance implications of the use of IHC for HMWK and AMACR, such as the biopsy turnaround times when IHC was used, the final diagnosis rendered on specific cores, and the intradepartmental consultation performed in this setting, as well as the cost analysis of IHC for routine evaluation of prostate needle biopsies in our institution.
We also retrieved the information on IHC for HMWK (cytokeratin 5/6 [CK5/6]) and AMACR ordered for the evaluation of the needle biopsies, including the specific blocks in which IHC was performed.
The first one was used for IHC, using combined HMWK (CK5/6) and AMACR, which were performed sequentially on one slide, followed by 3 deeper H & E levels as previously described.
