Guideline for Optimization of Surgical and Pathological Quality Performance for Radical Prostatectomy in Prostate Cancer Management

This is a clinical practice guideline for adult males with potentially curable prostate cancer. The guideline examines surgical procedures and outcomes for radical prostatectomy (RP), while specifically addressing the extent of resection, acceptable positive margins, nerve-sparing techniques, pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND), and the recommended procedures for handling and processing RP specimens. Incontinence, erectile dysfunction, rectal injury, and blood transfusion are discussed as surgical complications that need to be limited.
