Re: Brassetti et al.: Prostate-specific Antigen Density Is a Good Predictor of Upstaging and Upgrading, According to the New Grading System: The Keys We Are Seeking May Be Already in Our Pocket (Urology 2018;111:129-136)

Abstract

I read this publication with interest, but caution that the conclusions may not be robust due to methodological flaws which are common across many radical prostatectomy (RP) papers investigating the utility of prostate specific antigen density (PSAD), most of which fail to include an internal reference for correlation of the prostate volume estimate. Highlighting this flaw may serve as a template for future PSAD studies that involve RP specimens.
