abstract

  • In VC we recommend: embed and process any remaining prostatic tissue including any saved fresh-frozen tissue; obtain 3 levels of each paraffin block; if results are negative, melt and flip the tissue and obtain 3 more levels. Following the above guidelines, a hidden carcinoma may be detected in the majority of the cases of VC.
