Radical prostatectomy for the treatment of localized prostatic carcinoma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The principal cause of failure of radical prostatectomy in the cure of prostatic cancer is distant dissemination of tumor. The greater the volume of tumor in the prostate, the greater is the opportunity for vascular or lymphatic permeation. If tumors were detected at an earlier time, then radical prostatectomy might be a more commonly employed modality in the management of patients with prostatic cancer. Also, once effective adjuvant chemotherapy has been identified, the role of radical prostatectomy in the management of patients with prostatic cancer should improve.
