Abstract

Purpose: We assessed the effects of prostate size on long-term health related quality of life and functional outcomes after laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. Materials and Methods: A total of 729 consecutive patients who underwent laparoscopic radical prostatectomy for localized prostate cancer were stratified by pathological prostate gland weight, including group 1-less than 35 gm, group 2-35 to 70 gm and group 3-greater than 70 gm. Urinary health related quality of life was assessed preoperatively and at regular intervals following laparoscopic radical prostatectomy using the validated Expanded Prostate Cancer Index Composite questionnaire. Results: A total of 613 evaluable patients were studied with a mean age of 57.7 years, a preoperative prostate specific antigen of 6.0 ng/ml, a median preoperative and postoperative Gleason score of 6, and a mean pathological gland weight of 51.3 gm (range 13.4 to 145.7). Patients with the largest glands had significantly worse baseline urinary function, as demonstrated by Expanded Prostate Cancer Index Composite urinary domain summary (p
