Abstract

To determine the incidence of complications associated with contemporary prostate biopsy, a review of 670 men undergoing transrectal prostate biopsy using 18 gauge biopsy needles was conducted. Of the men 580 received 1 to 3 days of ciprofloxacin antibiotic prophylaxis. A total of 16 patients (2.1%) suffered complications of whom 4 (0.6%) required hospitalization. These data demonstrate the low morbidity associated with contemporary transrectal prostate biopsy.
