abstract

  • Nodal disease increased the risk of progression. Extensive lymphadenectomy enhances the accuracy of surgical staging. However, we were unable to determine that removing more nodes improves freedom from BCR uniformly. Since the proportion of patients with prostate cancer with positive nodes is low, the value of extensive lymphadenectomy requires a multi-institutional, randomized clinical trial.
