Does nerve-sparing status impact surgical margin location for recurrence of prostate cancer after prostate surgery?

Does nerve-sparing status impact surgical margin location for recurrence of prostate cancer after prostate surgery?

Posted by on Aug 15, 2021 in Prostate cancer | 0 comments

In a nutshell This article looked at the impact of nerve-sparing (NS) surgery on positive surgical margin (PSM) location and the recurrence of tumors in patients following radical prostatectomy (RP; prostate removal surgery). The authors found that having NS surgery on both sides of the prostate increased the risk of PSM and was associated with a higher...

Evaluating the association between the lowest PSA value after prostate surgery and the occurrence of biochemical recurrence in patients with localized prostate cancer

Evaluating the association between the lowest PSA value after prostate surgery and the occurrence of biochemical recurrence in patients with localized prostate cancer

Posted by on Jul 11, 2021 in Prostate cancer | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study investigated the association between the lowest PSA value after radical prostatectomy (RP; surgery to remove the prostate) and the occurrence of biochemical recurrence (BCR) in patients with localized prostate cancer (PCa). The study found that a higher PSA value after RP and a shorter time to reach this...
