The impact of solitary and multiple positive surgical margins on hard clinical end points in 1712 adjuvant treatment-naive pT2-4 N0 radical prostatectomy patients.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Positive surgical margins (PSMs) increase the risk of biochemical recurrence (BCR) after radical prostatectomy (RP), but their impact on hard clinical end points is a topic of ongoing discussion. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of solitary PSMs (sPSMs) and multiple PSMs (mPSMs) on important clinical end points. DESIGN, SETTING, AND… (More)
