Objective: to carry out stratification of patients with locally advanced prostate cancer (PCa) on prognostic groups, depending on the clinical and morphological characteristics for determining the risk of biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy (RPE).
Materials and methods. During the period from August 2002 to June 2015, 419 patients with PCa were hospitalized on the basis of the Institute of Urology of the Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine RPE, of which 106 patients (25.3%) had clinical stage sT3N0M0. The average follow-up period was 55.7 months.
Results. Based on the main clinical risk factors, a model of prognostic stratification of locally advanced PCa was developed into three subgroups: low risk – in the absence of data on invasion of seminal vesicles (stage cT3a), prostate-specific antigen (PSA) <20 ng / ml, Gleason score with biopsy Ј6; Intermediate risk – in the presence of one of the unfavorable factors of the forecast: stage cT3v, PSA ≥20 ng/ml, Gleason ≥7; нigh risk – in the presence of two or more negative prognostic factors. Biochemical relapse in the groups of low, intermediate and high risk was revealed in 14.3%, 37.1% and 70.2% of patients (p<0.05), respectively, and the risk of its development in patients with intermediate risk increased 3.0 times , нigh – 8.5 times.
Conclusion. This stratification can be useful for practical specialists and researchers in choosing the optimal treatment tactics for patients with stage III prostate cancer.
