Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To examine the relationship between age and biochemical failure after radical prostatectomy (RP), controlling for the year of surgery. Prior studies have suggested that younger men have lower prostate-specific antigen recurrence rates after RP, although none of the prior studies had controlled for the year of surgery. METHODS: We examined the data from 1753 men treated with RP between 1988 and 2002 at five equal access medical centers. We compared age, as a categorical variable according to decade of life (50 years old or younger, 51 to 60, 61 to 70, and older than 70 years), with the clinical and pathologic variables at RP, as well as the time to biochemical recurrence, using a multivariate Cox proportional hazards model. RESULTS: Age was significantly related to the year of surgery, with the more recently treated patients being younger than less recently treated patients (P
