The Positive Surgical Governance (PSM) Rate

Decent Essays
A widely acknowledged criterion for the technical quality of RP is the positive surgical margin (PSM) rate, and this rate has been shown to affect the risk of biochemical recurrence (BCR) after surgery. Although previous reports demonstrated predictors that may prolong operation time (OT) and raise the rate of positive surgical margin (PSM), there are no studies so far that evaluated the practical impact of adhesion of the Denonvilliers’ fascia due to prostatic bleeding by biopsy procedure on the PSM rate. Peri-prostatic and/or intra-prostatic bleeding is one of the most common complications seen in of the biopsies for prostatic gland. We reviewed patients’ operation record who had adhesion of the Denonvilliers’ fascia and found out most of
