Department of Urology, Medanta - The Medicity, Gurgaon, Haryana, India
Radical prostatectomy is a leading form of treatment for non metastatic prostate cancer. It has been shown to improve survival in the long term as well as delay or prevent the onset of metastatic disease. However, as the treatment of metastatic prostate cancer has evolved in the last few years with the introduction of newer agents, the possible role of «SQ»cytoreductive«SQ» radical prostatectomy is now being explored. Preliminary evidence suggests that radical prostatectomy may have a future role in this clinical scenario with a potential to improve quality and quantity of life in selected patients with metastatic disease.
