Cribriform architecture prostatic adenocarcinoma in needle biopsies is a strong independent predictor for lymph node metastases in radical prostatectomy

Lymph node metastases (pN1) at prostatectomy are infrequent but impact prognosis. Traditional prostate nomograms assess age, serum prostatic-specific antigen (PSA), clinical stage, and biopsy parameters to inform decisions on pelvic lymph node dissection. The impact of intraductal carcinoma (IDC) and cribriform pattern 4 (CC) on nodal metastases has yet to be explored.
