Detection of Micrometastases in Lymph Nodes of Patients With Prostate Cancer
The purpose of this study is to set up a model for detecting micrometastases in Lymph nodes of patients with prostate cancer by quantitative polymerase chain reaction and its impact on progression-free survival.

|Official Title:||Detection of Micrometastases in Lymph Nodes of Patients With Prostate Cancer|
- Biochemical recurrence free survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Influence of molecularbiologic micrometastases in lymph nodes on biochemical recurrence free survival in comparison with patients who have histopathologic macrometastases or no evidence of lymph node metastases
- Frequency of molecular detected lymph node micrometastases according to their topography [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Description of the anatomic distribution of molecularbiologic lymph node micrometastases in prostate cancer patients treated with radical prostatectomy and extended lymphadenectomy.
The frequency of molecular detected lymph node micrometastases according to their anatomic distribution at the obturatoric fossa, external iliac, internal iliac and common iliac arteries´ region will be reported.
