Introduction and Objectives
Abstract objective is evaluate incidence of prostate cancer (PC) and prostate transitional cell cancer in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer after radical cystoprostatectomy (CE).
Material and Methods
Retrospective study of patient file with muscle-invasive bladder cancer who underwent surgery (radical cystoprostatectomy) in years 2000 – 2009. Surgery underwent 150 men. Histological investigation was focused on prostate to locate prostate cancer and prostate transitional cell cancer. Mean age of our patient file was 62 years.
Histological investigation located prostate cancer in 23 patients (15%) and prostate transitional cell cancer in 12 patients (8%). Gleason score of prostate cancer was between 3 till 9, therefrom 5 patients (22%) had Gleason score ≥ 7. All patients with prostate cancer had the pathological stage T2, only 1 patient had the pathological stage pT3a. In one case there was a prostate cancer with cT3b after the treatment (RT and OE) and we have not found any malignant cell in prostate. Mean age of patients with prostate cancer was 67 years against mean age of whole patient file.
Our results promote the published studies that affection of the prostate by transitional cell cancer and prostate cancer is relatively often finding in preparations after cystoprostatectomy. Prostate spearing radical cystectomy should be preventing particular examination to minimalize risk of holding the tumor in patient.
