Prostatectomy as a treatment for canine prostate cancer: a literature review

Abstract
Canine prostate cancer is a relatively rare condition with a poor prognosis. Both total and partial prostatectomy have been described as treatment strategies for this condition. Based on the available literature, it is clear that prostatectomy is usually employed in combination with other therapeutic strategies.. However, it is apparent that the procedure is currently not suitable for curative intent. Its role as palliative therapy has been better established. Among others, urinary incontinence and urinary tract infections were reported as important complications. The reported frequencies varied per study. Future research is needed to establish the role of prostatectomy in the treatment of canine prostate cancer. Based on the current lack of prospective studies, it is difficult to state whether prostatectomy should become routine practice or first-line standard of care. Novel protocols for treating canine prostate cancer should be established.

Key words: Prostate, Prostatectomy, Dogs, Cancer, Carcinoma
