Local tumor recurrence following "Radical prostatectomy"

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The resurgence of radical retropubic prostatectomy as a commonly employed treatment for organ-confined prostate cancer is largely a result of the reduction in morbidity related to the procedure. One aspect of this reduced morbidity is the potential to preserve potency. The technical points required to perform this procedure must be followed precisely or there is the potential for performing an inadequate cancer operation if these steps are not faithfully followed. We recently encountered a patient with local tumor recurrence because the initial urologist failed to adhere to these principles. A "salvagerd" procedure was performed.
