A retrospective review of 89 D1 prostatic cancer patients has been conducted since 1985. Fifty-eight and 31 patients underwent RRP plus early hormonotherapy (HOR) and HOR ± RT, respectively. Pathological evaluation showed several levels of lymph node involvement. Low surgical morbidity was observed; generally after RRP, patients referred satisfactory personal and social life without urinary obstruction and pelvic pain. Patients treated with HOR alone or in combination with RT referred various urinary obstruction levels and pelvic pain. The role of RRP vs more conservative and less expensive approaches should be revised in selected D1 patients also considering high survival rate in long term follow-up.
