Abstract

Perineural invasion (PNI) after radical prostatectomy (RP) is a common feature of prostate cancer (PCa) and has been associated with unfavorable tumor characteristics. However, its prognostic relevance is controversial. In this study, we evaluated the impact of both PNI status (PNI+ vs PNI-) and quantified number of PNI focus on the long-term prognosis of biochemical recurrence (BCR) after RP.
