Title:
Apical soft tissue biopsies predict biochemical failure in radical perineal prostatectomy patients with apical cancer involvement. 
Abstract:
The aim of the study was to prospectively assess the role of apical soft tissue biopsies in radical perineal prostatectomy (RPP) patients with documented apical prostate cancer (PCA) involvement. Between June 1998 and May 1999, 77 consecutive men with localized PCA and documented invasion of the prostatic apex underwent RPP by a single surgeon. Soft tissue biopsies were systematically obtained from the prostatic fossa overlying the apex at the time of surgery. Time to biochemical failure was cal...    »
