Introduction & Objectives: The accuracy of staging tools developed in patients treated with open radical prostatectomy (RP) is unknown in patients treated with robotic assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP). Since RALP patients may have different clinical and pathological
characteristics, the accuracy of staging tools may be compromised. We externally validated a
previously published nomogram predicting side-specific (SS) extracapsular extension (ECE) in a
large population of patients subject to RALP.
