Abstract

Objective: We sought to evaluate outcomes after radical prostatectomy among men with low-risk prostate cancer who would be candidates for active surveillance. Methods: Using the Shared Equal Access Regional Cancer Hospital (SEARCH) database of men treated with radical prostatectomy at multiple equal-access medical centers between 1988 and 2007, 398 of 2062 men (19%) met our criteria for potential active surveillance: clinical stage T1c or T2a, prostate-specific antigen (PSA)
