Screening and diagnosis of prostate cancer in patients with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis: Consensus from an expert panel - Abstract

Digestive Disease Institute, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Screening for prostate cancer after restorative proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis can be challenging. Diagnostic biopsy for an elevated level of prostate-specific antigen may present difficulties as well. No guidelines have been issued regarding the value and accuracy of digital examination and the best route to obtain prostate biopsy specimens. A screening and diagnostic algorithm for prostate cancer was developed by an expert consensus panel.
