Pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) during radical prostatectomy (RP) is the most accurate staging modality for lymph node assessment in patients with prostate cancer (1).
It is notable that no lymph node pathologic data was available for 67% of PC cases in our series (and 24% of RC), suggesting that PLND was not considered part of the surgical procedure, possibly to decrease operative time and/or morbidity.
Among a total of 183 patients, 109 patients comprise Group A after excluding advanced stage (N = 12), incomplete PLND (N = 32), brachytherapy alone or insufficient radiation dose (N = 16), neoadjuvant chemotherapy (N = 4), para-aortic irradiation or metastases (N = 6), incomplete hysterectomy (N = 1), and small cell or clear cell histology (N = 3).
(16) reported positive LNs in 5.8% of 499 patients who underwent retropubic RP with extended PLND for clinically localized prostate cancer.
