Abstract

Purpose We studied adverse radical prostatectomy findings in men on an active surveillance program with different entry and exit criteria. Materials and Methods The study included 80 men with biopsy progression, 33 who opted out for personal reasons and 24 who initially did not meet entry criteria mainly due to increased prostate specific antigen density. Results Of men who opted out 78.8% had a higher Gleason score of 6 than men who progressed on biopsy (46.2%, p = 0.002) and men with high prostate specific antigen density (45.8%, p = 0.02). Men with high prostate specific antigen density had less organ confined disease than the group that opted out (p
