Combined Standard and Targeted Transperineal Biopsies Advised for Patients With Prostate Lesion on Multiparametric MRI
Massachusetts General Hospital researchers recommend patients who have a prostate lesion on multiparametric MRI should undergo both standard and targeted biopsy using the transperineal approach, as that resulted in a Gleason grade most concordant with the results from radical prostatectomy specimens.
Prostate Cancer Patients with Posterior Positive Surgical Margins Have Poorer Prognosis
Shulin Wu, MD, PhD, and Chin-Lee Wu, MD, PhD, of the Departments of Urology and Pathology, present evidence that prostate cancer patients who have posterior positive surgical margins (PSM) after radical prostatectomy have a more aggressive disease than those with anterior PSM.
Risk of Prostate Cancer Recurrence Correlates With Number of Perineural Invasion Foci
The number of perineural invasion foci in radical prostatectomy specimens is a useful new method of prognostication.
Low-risk Incidental Prostate Cancer in Men with Bladder Cancer May Be Associated with Longer Survival
Men with bladder cancer who have low-risk prostate cancer detected incidentally by radical cystoprostatectomy may actually have a more favorable prognosis than those who do not.
