Abstract

In our cohort, patients with bilaterally positive biopsy cores were significantly more likely to harbor a non-organ-confined tumor than patients with unilaterally positive cores. Due to their high specificity, bilaterally positive biopsies may represent a reasonable exclusion criterion for active surveillance if our results are corroborated in further studies.
