PURPOSE Anterior tumors are estimated to constitute 20% of prostate cancers. Current data indicate that transperineal biopsy is more reliable than transrectal biopsy in identifying these tumors. If correct, this superior reliability should result in an increased proportion of anterior tumors identified by transperineal biopsy. We investigated this(More)
BACKGROUND Positive surgical margins (PSMs) are a known risk factor for biochemical recurrence in patients with prostate cancer (PCa) and are potentially affected by surgical technique and volume. OBJECTIVE To investigate whether radical prostatectomy (RP) modality and volume affect PSM rates. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Fourteen institutions in(More)
Fischer F344 rats were given a cyclical diet of 0.06% 2-acetylaminofluorene (AAF), which progressively induced oval cell proliferation, cirrhosis and hyperplastic (or neoplastic) nodules. Primary liver tumours developed from 7 months after ceasing the diet. Liver samples taken during and after AAF administration and specimens of primary tumours were(More)
Introduction. To assess the performance of five previously described clinicopathological definitions of low-risk prostate cancer (PC). Materials and Methods. Men who underwent radical prostatectomy (RP) for clinical stage ≤T2, PSA <10 ng/mL, Gleason score <8 PC, diagnosed by transperineal template-guided saturation biopsy were included. The performance of(More)
Eleven patients with abdominal hydatid disease were monitored by ultrasound and computed tomography during treatment with albendazole. As well as diminution in cyst size, some patients developed a transonic halo around their cysts and, in others, daughter cysts apparently disappeared.
