Abstract

The purpose of our study was to perform a literature review of current data to determine the frequency and correlates of pT0 prostate cancer after radical prostatectomy alone. A comprehensive search was made of MEDLINE and PUBMED. Seven studies were identified involving 18,135 patients with 74 reported pT0 cases. The most frequent correlates from our pooled data of patients with pT0 specimens include preoperative PSA <10 ng/ml, only one positive core biopsy, and Gleason score <7.
