The article discusses research on the prognosis of prostate cancer patients with few lymph node metastases after radical retropubic prostatectomy. It references a study by M. C. Schumacher et al, published in the volume 54 issue of "European Urology." The researchers investigated 122 node-positive patients who had undergone retropubic prostatectomy with extended pelvic lymph node dissection and who had not received neoadjuvant therapy.
