Comparing transrectal vs transperineal biopsies in patients with prostate cancer


“The thought [for transperineal biopsy] is that if you can avoid introducing some rectal bacteria into the tissue, that we may be able to totally avoid or at least minimize the post-biopsy infections,” says Badar M. Mian, MD, FACS.

In this video, Badar M. Mian, MD, FACS, discusses the advantages and disadvantages of 2 types of approaches to prostate biopsy: transrectal biopsy, the current standard of care, and the newer transperineal technique. Mian is a professor of surgery and urology at Albany Med Urology in Albany, New York.
