[Article in Russian]

Abstract

The article describes the methodology of transrectal diagnostic prostate biopsy under ultrasound guidance with regard to settings of municipal polyclinic; existing complications are listed. The analysis of the results of 876 biopsies performed within 3 years is presented. The distribution of the results of histological examination depending on the level of total PSA, ratio of free and total PSA, and PSA density was followed-up. Relationship between PC detection rate using standard biopsy and prostate volume is shown. The analysis of the degree of PC differentiation (Gleason score) depending on the level of total PSA, the ratio of free and total PSA, and PSA density was performed. Practical recommendations to improvement of PC detection rate are presented. Based on the analysis, it was concluded that the screening for prostate cancer for the purpose of its earlier diagnosis is reasonable.
