Objective: Although Partin tables were developed in United States to predict the stage of prostate cancer preoperatively, they are used by many clinics throughout the world assuming that these figures apply to their population as well. However the predictive value of current Partin tables, which was updated in 2001, has not been validated in most of the countries as well as in Turkey. Therefore, we evaluated the validity of 2001 Partin tables, for the ability to predict the pathological stage in Turkish patients.
