Radical prostatectomy is the golden standard for localized prostate cancer. The identification of patients with intraprostatic disease who can be cured and will live long enough to benefit from a surgical therapy represents the primary goal of the authors. Target of this article is underlining the importance of an accurate preoperative staging through ultrasound-guided biopsy of seminal vesicles and periprostatic spaces. The positivity of the surgical margin after radical prostatectomy is also taken into account as it represents, according to the authors, an extremely important but often overlooked parameter.
