The optimal number of prostate cores extracted during a prostate biopsy performed because of a suspected prostate cancer is still debated. The present consensus is to sample 12 cores. However, recent data published in the literature brought arguments in favour of a higher number, probably 20. This would have the advantages of decreasing the false negatives and the re-biopsy rate.

To compare prostate cancer (PCa) detection rate of magnetic resonance (MR)-targeted biopsy and transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsy in patients with high PSA values and at least one...
Primary purpose: Complications and rehospitalizations after transperineal prostate biopsy MRI-guided are reduced than transrectal prostate biopsies. Secondary purposes: - ...
During a prostate biopsy, a needle is guided through the rectum into the prostate. Although patients are given antibiotics before the biopsy, there is still a risk of bacteria getting from...
MRI is being increasingly relied upon for detection, staging and management of prostate cancer. In this study patients with risk of prostate cancer will be recommended to have a pelvic MRI...
The hypothesis of the study is that targeted MRI/US fusion-guided prostate biopsy with additional systematic transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsy significantly detects more prostate...
To analyse the impact of repeating PSA levels on prostate biopsy decision in a cohort of men undergoing prostate biopsy.
Systematic transrectal ultrasonography (US)-guided biopsy is the standard approach for histopathologic diagnosis of prostate cancer. However, this technique has multiple limitations because of its ina...
Until recently, prostate biopsy for the detection of prostate cancer has been performed transrectally and in an untargeted sampling fashion. Consequently, the procedure has suffered a small but signif...
To analyse the detection rates of primary MRI-fusion transperineal prostate biopsy using combined targeted and systematic core distribution in three tertiary referral centres.
Prostate MRI is commonly used in the detection of prostate cancer to reduce the detection of clinically insignificant disease; maximize the detection of clinically significant cancer; and better asses...
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
Removal of all or part of the PROSTATE, often using a cystoscope and/or resectoscope passed through the URETHRA.
A synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.
