abstract

  • Standard clinical features of prostate cancer in each lobe-PSA, palpable induration and biopsy Gleason sum-can be used to predict the side specific probability of ECE in RP specimens. The predictive accuracy is increased by adding information from systematic biopsy results. The predictive nomograms are sufficiently accurate for use in clinical practice in decisions such as wide versus close dissection of the cavernous nerves from the prostate.
