Introduction: In the year 2015 clinical data and results of 215 prostate biopsies were evaluated retrospectively.
Patient and method: We examined the pre-biopsy clinical data, the method of preparation, the circumstances of the intervention, and the results and complications. The relationship between complications and clinical data was investigated as well.
Results: The average of pre-sampling PSA values was 18,9 (2,2–817) ng/ml, with 37,7% of cases showing a tactile finding, suspicion of a tumour process. The average prostate size was found to be 54.3 ml. Of the samples taken, 102 were confirmed for prostate cancer (47,5%). There were 34 cases of complications with 13 cases of intervention.
Conclusion: The otherwise unified preparation was quite heterogeneous. Although antibiotics were given every time, its active ingredient, dose, and timing varied from one doctor to another. The accuracy of the biopsy the number and proportion of complications were acceptable compared to the literature. The physician-based individual evaluation of the assessment provides an opportunity for modifications to ensure uniform, standard conditions.
