Oncological outcomes of Salvage Radical Prostatectomy in a contemporary, multicentre series of 395 cases.
In men with biochemical recurrence (BCR) after primary treatment, salvage radical prostatectomy (sRP) can represent a valid therapeutic option with curative intent. Since current evidence mainly relies on outdated records, including patients treated 50 years ago, our aim was to assess the oncological outcomes in a large, contemporary series of sRP.
Between 2000 and 2016, 615 men with BCR underwent sRP at 18 Tertiary referral centres. We retrospectively collected pre-, intra and post-procedural clinical and pathological data, assessing erectile function (EF) and urinary continence (Con) before sRP, at 6 and/or 12 months. A follow up
