Conclusions

The present study provides insights into the role ultrasensitive serum PSA measurements plays in determining who will develop BCR after radical prostatectomy and, such as, be candidates for secondary treatment. The kinetics of postoperative PSA decline may allow better stratification of patients who would benefit from immediate radiation therapy.
