Author information

  • 1Department of Clinical Radiology, Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport.

Abstract

The side effects and patient acceptability of 230 ultrasound guided prostatic needle biopsies performed by the transrectal route in an out-patient setting were reviewed retrospectively. Most of the side effects were transient and mild; one patient required hospitalization for urinary retention. Patient acceptability was good; over 70% of patients reported no significant pain from the biopsy procedure.
