Table 2 Association of patient and surgical characteristics in n = 616 PCa patients versus response to QoL collected at one- or two-year follow-up

From: Comparison of patient-reported quality of life outcome questionnaire response rates between patients treated surgically for renal cell carcinoma and prostate carcinoma

Variablea Non-responder (n = 230) Responder (n = 386) P-valueb
Age at surgery 62.6 (29.9, 76.8) 64.1 (42.9, 78.4) 0.032
Surgery type    
RRP 83 (36 %) 171 (44 %) 0.009
RARP 147 (64 %) 215 (56 %)  
T stage    0.51
pT1 0 (0 %) 3 (1 %)  
pT2 200 (87 %) 328 (85 %)  
pT3, pT4 30 (13 %) 54 (14 %)  
Pathological Gleason score    0.71
4-6 86 (37 %) 139 (36 %)

  1. aMedian [Minimum, Maximum] is given for continuous measures, and N (%) for categorical measures
  2. bP-values for age at surgery and Gleason score are based on Wilcoxon Rank Sum test. P-values given for T-stage are based on Fisher’s Exact test
  3. PCa = prostate cancer
  4. QoL = quality of life
  5. RRP = Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy
  6. RARP = Robot-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy
