EPE (focally or extensively), intraprostatic
incision (IPI), surgical margin positivity (PSM) in the presence of IPI, and PSM in the presence of EPE are the parameters which are commonly used in RP reports besides the identification of tumor characteristics such as grade, volume, pathological stage, and surgical margin status.
When complete flow stasis was observed on the postembolization angiograms, distal advancement of the microcatheter into the intraprostatic
branches was considered, as per "PErFecTED" technique ("Proximal Embolization First, Then Embolize Distal": first, embolization of the PA proximal to its branching to the central and peripheral zone; then, distal advancement of the microcatheter for intraprostatic

Interestingly, following medical or surgical castration, the intraprostatic
concentration of DHT is about 40% of that measured in the prostates of intact 65-yr-old men.
However, some evidence of intraprostatic
inflammation was observed on histopathologic evaluation; whether that inflammation was related to the surgical procedure or to C4 was unclear.
Gardiner et al., published the first prospective human study measuring intraprostatic

(49) that there was improvement in urinary symptoms after intraprostatic
injections of BoNT in 4 patients with nonbacterial prostatitis.
Uncertainty about the significance of serum testosterone determinations stem from the finding that they are a poor reflection of prostate tissue androgen levels, (2) but perhaps more confounding is the realization that following medical castration, there is a decrease of 94% in serum testosterone levels while intraprostatic
testosterone and dihydrotestosterone remain at 20-30% of pre-castration levels.
