Modern urology offers patients various types of prostate diagnostics. But there are those types of diagnostic tests that are considered the gold standard. So, for example, for the early diagnosis of prostate cancer, this is precisely the status that a prostate biopsy has.
Urological surgeon and ultrasound diagnostician Sergii Liulko performs multifocal (multiple) prostate biopsies under ultrasound control. The resulting biomaterial is sent for histological examination, which will determine the nature of the pathological processes. In addition to the diagnostic procedure, the specialist also performs punctures of prostate cysts under ultrasound control, which will make it possible to get rid of this type of neoplasm effectively.

The multifocal biopsy is performed under ultrasound control using a special rectal probe on which a biopsy tip with a unique channel for a biopsy needle.
The multifocal biopsy is multiple (up to 12) puncture injections into the prostate using a special needle loaded into a particular biopsy gun. This diagnostic procedure makes it possible to collect tissue from different parts of the prostate gland. All samples obtained are sent for a histological examination performed under a microscope.
The multifocal prostate biopsy procedure is performed using an ultrasound probe to monitor the entire process. This biopsy method is considered the "gold standard" for the early diagnosis of prostate cancer.
Essential Benefits of a multifocal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy include:
No special preparatory procedures are required. You have informed the doctor in advance about the medications that you take. Since a is performed through the rectum the day before prostate biopsy, rectal lumen clean with a cleansing enema or Norgalax microclusters.
If the patient is taking blood-thinning drugs, some drugs, such as aspirin, must be canceled for ten days before the biopsy. When taking others, for example, warfarin, clopidogrel, Xarelto, it is necessary to cancel 4-5 days before the operation and switch to subcutaneous administration of low molecular weight heparins, for example, Fraxiparin or Clexane.
The patient is injected intramuscularly with an analgesic agent, and the rectal cavity is treated with Betadine solution.
One day before the prescribed procedure, to prevent infectious complications, the patient starts taking antibiotics and continues taking them 3-5 days after the prostate biopsy.
The material is taken with a unique disposable needle, which acts quickly, accurately, and does not cause pain. But to relieve tension, as a rule, local anesthesia is still applied. As a result, the procedure runs smoothly and is easily tolerated.
During the puncture of the prostate cyst, local anesthesia is also used. Then, the cyst is punctured, and its contents removed. When cysts reappear, the punch is combined with the introduction of an adhesive solution, which excludes new accumulations of fluid in the corresponding cavity.
