Progressive elevation of the prostate specific antigen (PSA) level after radical prostatectomy for adenocarcinoma is generally considered as irrefutable evidence of recurrent tumor. We assessed the results of 62 biopsies of the vesicourethral anastomosis in 41 men who had 3 or more consecutive PSA levels of 0.4 ng./ml. or greater after radical prostatectomy and no evidence of metastatic disease. The median PSA at the time of the first biopsy was 2.2 ng./ml. (range 0.4 to 50). Histological… CONTINUE READING
