Can a Gleason 6 or Less Microfocus of Prostate Cancer in One Biopsy and Prostate-Specific Antigen Level <10ng/mL Be Defined as the Archetype of Low-Risk Prostate Disease
Journal of Oncology, 07/13/2012
Taverna G et al. – Multivariate regression analysis showed a statistically significant correlation between the presence of surgical margins at the retropubic radical prostatectomy (RRP) and biochemical relapse (BR). Considering a single micro–focus of Prostate cancer (PC) at the biopsy and PSA serum level <10ng/mL, clinically significant disease was found in 74.26% patients and only positive surgical margins are useful for predicting the BR.
