Abstract

Objective: Controversy persists regarding the adequacy of pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) and cancer control when comparing minimally invasive radical prostatectomy (MIRP) and open radical prostatectomy (RRP). We characterized determinants of performance and extent of PLND during radical prostatectomy in elderly men. Methods: A population-based study was conducted comprised of 5448 men
