Table 4 Histopathological features and oncological follow-up for both groups

From: Prospective comparison of one year follow-up outcomes for the open complete intrafascial retropubic versus interfascial nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy

  OIF-RP percent (n/total) interfascial percent (n/total) p value (chi square test)
pT2 93% (223/241) 82% (155/189) <0.001
pT3 7% (18/241) 18% (34/189)  
Gleason score    
6 66.4% (148/223) 40.8% (62/152) <0.001
7 32.7% (72/223) 54.6% (83/152)  
8-10 0.9% (2/223) 4.6% (7/152)  
R0 (in pT2) 91.2% (196/215) 81.9% (122/149) 0.009
R1 (in pT2) 8.8% (19/215) 18.1% (27/149)  
R0 (in pT3) 27.8% (5/18) 48.5% (16/33) 0.151
R1 (in pT3) 72.2% (13/18) 51.5% (17/33)  
Recurrence-free 98.1% (155/158) 98.9% (93/94) 0.608
After 12 months (in pT2)    
  1. Small variation in case number is due to some missing data.
  2. OIF-RP; Open Intrafascial radical Prostataectomy, R0; free resection margins, R1; positive resection margin.
