Comparison Of Effectiveness of Transrectal Ultrasonography-Guided Saturation Biopsy And 10-12 Core Biopsy In Repeated Prostate Biopsies
1. Abnormal digital examination
2. High serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) level.
3. The continued suspicion for a malignancy after the initial benign biopsy result
and/or a pathology result consistent with a high-grade prostatic intraepithelial
neoplasia (HGPIN) or atypical small acinar proliferation (ASAP).
1. Patients with coagulopathies
2. Patients with unsuitable general conditions for prostate biopsy.
Type of Study:
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Detection rate of prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer detection rate after saturation and repeated 10-12 core prostate biopsy.
Outcome Time Frame:
At least two months
