ALVAREZ-MUGICA, M. et al. Changes in the presentation pattern of the prostate cancer in Oviedo in the last 10 years: diagnostic and treatment (Part II). Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2006, vol.30, n.10, pp.980-986. ISSN 0210-4806.

Objectives: To describe and compare the diagnostic and treatment factors of prostate adenocarcinomas diagnosed in our department in the years 1995 and 2004. Material and method: We review the 216 patients diagnosed in both years, recording several features. Results: Significant differences were found in the mean of cylinders taken in the biopsies, being higher in 20041,6 than in 19952,3. Hormonal deprivation was the predominant treatment in 1995 followed by radical prostatectomy, while in 2004 radiotherapy (external beam or braquitherapy) was the most frequent therapy used followed by hormonal deprivation and radical prostatectomy. Independent factors to apply the treatment was the age (OR=5,6) and the risk groups (OR=2,8) in the year 2004 and only the age (>70 years vs <70) in the year 1995. Conclusions: The evolution held in treatment therapies for prostate adenocarcinomas, made this disease in terms of treatment a multidisciplinary disease obtaining better results.
