Oncologic Results

The five years global survival according to the stage are reported Figure 6 and Table 5 for the overall series of 132 patients including open and laparoscopic approach. The five years' recurrence-free survival, isolated local recurrence and distant metastases rates reported (Tables 6 and 7), show comparable data between our series and those published by Studer et al. with 507 patients who underwent radical cystoprostatectomy without any adjuvant or neoadjuvant treatment (33). Stein et al. (34) reported a lower rate of distant metastases (13% for stage = pT2 N0) in 1054 patients who underwent cystoprostatectomy, but 25% of them received adjuvant or neoadjuvant therapies (radiotherapy or chemotherapy).
