In patients with intermediate- to high-risk PCa, 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT had a high specificity and a moderate sensitivity for LNM detection. 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT had the potential to replace current imaging for LN staging of patients with PCa scheduled for RP.

The role and extent of extended pelvic lymph node dissection (ePLND) during radical prostatectomy (RP) for prostate cancer patients remains unclear. A PubMed literature search was performed for studies reporting on treatment regimens and outcomes in patients with prostate cancer treated by RP and extended lymph node dissection between 1999 and 2013...

PurposeIn 2003 we reported on the outcomes of 88 patients with node positive disease who underwent radical prostatectomy and pelvic lymph node dissection (median 21 nodes) between 1989 and 1999. Patients with limited nodal disease appeared to have a good chance of long-term survival, even without immediate adjuvant therapy (androgen deprivation the...
Introduction & Objectives: To present the case of a patient who underwent robot-assisted salvage lymph node dissection (PLND) for recurrent prostate cancer. Material & Methods: A 70-year old man had a rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) up to 1,12ng/mL 3 years after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (without PLND) and adjuvant radiotherapy fo...

Pelvic lymph node dissection can be spared at radical prostatectomy for low-risk disease, as its diagnostic and therapeutic value is poor.

Fifty-five patients with Stage IB adenocarcinoma of the cervix were treated by radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy from 1965 through 1985. Bleeding was the presenting symptom in 56% of the patients. Twenty patients underwent cone biopsy for diagnostic purposes and 70% had residual carcinoma at the time of definitive surgery. A single po...
