Biochemical failure in men following radical retropubic prostatectomy: impact of surgical margin status and location.

Abstract

PURPOSE The significance of isolated positive apical surgical margins in radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) specimens remains controversial. We examine the effects of margin status and location on biochemical recurrence rates in patients undergoing RRP.
