Abstract

Transrectal fine needle aspiration biopsy of the prostate (1) is a fast, safe and accurate method of identifying malignant disease and also of assessing the grade of malignancy (2). At the Karolinska sjukhuset an annual average of 800 aspiration biopsies of the prostate have been performed for the last twenty years. The fine needle of the Franzen instrument gives minimal trauma and the procedure can be performed repeatedly without causing undue discomfort to the patient. This allows the response to therapy to be monitored by repeated biopsies.
