Abstract

From December 1986 to August 1988, three patients with early prostatic cancer diagnosed primarily by fine needle aspriation cytology and/or Tru-cut needle biopsy underwent potency preserving radical retropubic prostatectomy. Herin we report the results and associated problems. Most difficulty was the diagnosis of the early prostatic cancer. We used fine needle aspiration cytology to diagnose the prostatic cancer primarily. One case of class V on the preoperative cytologic examination has proved to be BPH with chronic prostatitis postoperatively. Another problem was possibility of major bleeding intraoperatively, and complications were uncommon and not serious.
