Özet

Prostate biopsy guidelines recommend that a prostate biopsy not containing glandular prostate tissue should be reported as inadequate. In the literature, there is a lack of any study that addresses the relationship between the length of biopsy cores and the absence of glandular prostate tissue. In this study, we aimed to determine whether a relationship exists between these parameters.
