OBJECTIVES Our aim is to design a predictive model of seminal vesicle involvement. using clinical data. METHODS We studied 1128 patients with clinically localized adenocarcinoma treated by radical prostatectomy (127 were pT3b). We identified (logistic regression) clinical variables related with pT3b. With the multivariate study influential variables a(More)

We also created our own risk groups. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between January 1990 and December 2012, 596 patients underwent surgery for(More)
