Why is it important?

In conclusion, this study has identified an elevated risk of biochemical recurrence in patients with both ductus deferens and seminal vesicle invasion.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations. This article also lead to new finding about the biochemical recurrence in patients with prostate cancer
