OBJECTIVES To date, no tool exists to predict pT0 at radical prostatectomy (RP) in patients with T1a-T1b prostate cancer (PCa) after surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia (SxBPH). We aimed to fill this gap by developing a user-friendly flowchart to assist urologists when incidental PCa is diagnosed and a clinical decision is required. METHODS We analyzed 158 T1a-T1b prostate cancers patients who underwent RP between 1996 and 2009. A risk stratification tool was developed applying the tree… CONTINUE READING
