Partin Tables update 2013: Organ confined disease
Objective was to update the 2007 Partin tables in a contemporary
patient population.
Pathological stage after radical prostatectomy can be accurately predicted by serum prostate-specific antigen level, clinical stage and biopsy Gleason sum, the ‘Partin tables’. Since the previous publication of the Partin tables, an updated Gleason scoring system has been established and incremental changes have occurred in the clinical characteristics of patients diagnosed with prostate cancer. The current analysis updates the Partin nomogram in a contemporary cohort of patients.

    Additional information

    The study population consisted of 5,629 consecutive men who underwent RP and staging lymphadenectomy at the
    Johns Hopkins Hospital between January 1, 2006 and July 30, 2011 and met inclusion criteria.

    Result interpretation

    the current analysis represents an update of the ‘Partin tables’ based on the population of men treated from 2006 to 2011 at our institution. Pathological stage did not change between RP specimens from 2006 to 2010 and those from 2000 to 2005, possibly indicating a new equilibrium of pathological stage.Urologists may use these nomograms to predict pathological stage as a treatment decision aid for men newly diagnosed with prostate cancer.

    The confidence intervals of the prediction can be found in the table below
