The authors evaluated the risk of death from prostate cancer in Rhode Island men who had had surgery for prostatic hypertrophy during the years 1959-1970.
The retrospective follow-up method was used.
Among 4,853 men who had had either a transurethral resection or a prostatectomy, ageand time-standardized mortality from prostate cancer was 1.14 (95% confidence interval (Cl) 0.96-1.33) times the rate in the general population of Rhode Island men.
The age- and time-standardized mortality ratio was 1.01 (95% Cl 0.77-1.31) for men who had had a suprapubic prostatectomy and 1.18 (95% CI 0.941.47) for men who had had a transurethral resection.
The authors used the case-control method to relate the histologic features of prostatic hypertrophy to subsequent prostate cancer.
