Indications and contraindications:
- localised prostate cancer.
- prostate cancer metastasizing to bones and internal organs,
- massive blood clotting disorders, coagulopathies.
The procedure is performed as an open or laparoscopic surgery. The prostate, together with seminal vesicles and pelvic lymph nodes, is removed.
During the procedure a catheter is inserted (through the urethra) and remains there for 8 to 14 days.
A specialist in urology prepares a treatment plan on the basis of the patient’s prostate biopsy results, imaging test results and the clinical picture.
The procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and lasts between 2 and 3 hours. After the procedure the Foley catheter is left in the bladder and a drain is left in the wound.
