BackgroundTo investigate the prognostic significance of percent tumor volume (PTV) in relation to the surgical margin status in men with prostate cancer after radical prostatectomy (RP).MethodsClinical and pathological data from 1,567 patients treated with RP only between 1995 and 2007 at participating institutions were reviewed. PTV was determined by the sum of all visually estimated tumor foci on every section. Biochemical recurrence (BCR) was defined as 2 consecutive increases in prostate… CONTINUE READING
