Computer modeling technology to assess extracapsular tissue coverage of whole mount sections after retropubic and laparoscopic radical prostatectomy.

PURPOSE The introduction of new surgical approaches to radical prostatectomy requires methodologies that permit valid comparison that are more expedient than long-term outcomes of biochemical local and distant failure and survival. We used a computer modeling program to assess the percent of extracapsular tissue coverage of prostate glands removed by the… CONTINUE READING
