Abstract

Standardized protocols for processing radical prostatectomy specimens are critical for superior patient management. It provides accurate information to the clinician in a reliable and consistent format to enhance patient care and prognosis. In recent years, processing protocols have been proposed by various authoritative groups, with similar suggestions for most parts of the practice guidelines; however, discrepancy in processing approaches still exists. Standardization improves the quality and consistency of pathology reports. In this review article, we incorporate the processing schemes for radical prostatectomy addressed in literature and propose a comprehensively standardized approach to evaluate radical prostatectomy specimens.
