This study was undertaken to evaluate the usefulness of transperineal mapping biopsy of the prostate as a staging procedure in the appropriate selection of patients for treatment with focal cryoablation. Between October 2001 and January 2006, a total of 80 patients underwent extensive template-guided transperineal pathologic mapping of the prostate (3-DPM), in conjunction with repeat transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsies. Before 3-DPM was performed, the following clinical variables were… CONTINUE READING
