Frequency of Positive Surgical Margin at Prostatectomy and

  • AbstractIntroductionMethodsResultsConclusionA positive surgical margin at prostatectomy is defined as tumor cells touching the inked edge of the specimen. This finding is reported in 8.8% to 42% of cases (median about 20%) in various studies. It is one of the main determinants of eventual biochemical (PSA) failure, generally associated with a doubled or tripled risk of failure. The effect of a positive margin on outcome can be modified by stage or grade and the length, number and location of positive margins, as well as by technical operative approach and durPositive surgical margins and biochemical recurrence Oct 02, 2017 · The overall positive surgical margin rate was 30.6% In total 592 men underwent minimally invasive radical prostatectomy (MIRP) between 2002 and 2012. Median age at MIRP was 63 years (IQR 58-67 years). Median PSA at diagnosis was 7.9ng/ml (IQR 5.7-11.8ng/ml) and median follow-up was 52.8 months (IQR 25.0-73.6 months). High surgeon volume and positive surgical margins can High surgeon volume and positive surgical margins can predict the risk of biochemical recurrence after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy - Antonio Benito Porcaro, Alessandro Tafuri, Marco Sebben, Nelia Amigoni, Tania Processali, Marco Pirozzi, Riccardo Rizzetto, Aliasger Shakir, Paolo Corsi, Leone Tiso, Clara Cerrato, Filippo Migliorini, Giovanni Novella, Matteo Brunelli, Riccardo Bernasconi, Vincenzo De

    Positive Surgical Margin after Radical Prostatectomy? What

    Apr 22, 2020 · A positive surgical margin (PSM) after radical prostatectomy occurs in around 10-31% of cases, so researchers are very interested in understanding the clinical importance of a PSM. A team of scientists and doctors in Norway recently published a paper examining the effect of PSMs on patient outcomes. The paper can be viewed here. Significance of positive surgical margin and how to Jun 15, 2018 · The success of any cancer operation with curative intent relies on complete surgical removal of the tumor. The goal of RP is complete resection of the tumor. Positive surgical margins [PSM] after radical prostatectomy [RP] associated with an increased risk of biochemical recurrence [BCR] and secondary treatment. We conducted the current literature to focus on the characteristics of Positive surgical margins at radical prostatectomy predict Jun 01, 2010 · Positive surgical margins (PSM) in men undergoing radical prostatectomy (RP) for prostate cancer (PCa) are associated with an increased risk of biochemical recurrence. Little data have evaluated the role of PSM in PCa-specific mortality (PCSM).
