Detection and treatment of early stage prostate cancer. Seminar. USA, 1993/12.
To evaluate the patterns of use of radical prostatectomy for the treatment of prostate cancer in the United States, the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer in association with the American Cancer Society and American Urological Association surveyed 484 institutions concerning 2,122 patients treated in 1990.
The results revealed that 93% of the patients were younger than 75 years when treated.
Pretreatment prostate specific antigen level was greater than 4.0 ng./ml. in 85.4% of the patients.
Surgical-pathological evaluation showed that 57.5% of the patients treated had American Joint Committee on Cancer pathological stages O, I and II corresponding to American Urological Association stages A1 to B2.
