The Partin Tables for Urologists
Information from the web site of the James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute of Johns Hopkins Medicine.
The “Partin Tables” were originially developed by urologists Alan W. Partin, M.D., Ph.D., and Patrick C. Walsh, M.D. based upon accumulated data from hundreds of patients who had been treated for prostate cancer. The tables correlate the three things that were known about a man’s disease -- PSA Level, Gleason Score, and estimated clinical stage – to help men and their doctors predict the definitive Pathological Stage (determined after surgery, when a pathologist examines the removed prostate for the presence of cancer) and best course of on-going treatment. This application accepts as input the PSA, TNM, and Gleason Score and immediately returns the probabilities for:
•Seminal Vesicle Invasion
•Lymph Node Invasion
The Han Tables for Urologists
What is the probability of recurrence following surgery?
The “Han Tables” were developed by urologists, Misop Han, M.D., Alan W. Partin, M.D., Ph.D., and Patrick C. Walsh, M.D.. The Han tables were designed to predict the probability of the first evidence of recurrence (detectable PSA level) following surgery. Like the Partin Table Lookup described above, the Han Tables correlate the three common factors known about a man’s prostate cancer – PSA, TNM, and clinical stage – in order to predict the probability of recurrence up to 10 years following surgery. This application accepts as input the PSA, TNM, and Gleason Score and immediately returns the recurrence probabilities for years 3, 5, 7, and 10 following surgery.
What's New in Version 5.0
1. The app has been completely rewritten and now requires iOS 8 or 9.
2. The app was tested for use with iPhones 4s up to the current iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
3. Small changes have been made to conform to Apple's suggested User Interface Guidelines but the interface remains essentially the same.
4. Speed, accuracy and ease of use is still the focus. If you have your iPhone in hand, and you know the Staging, PSA, and Gleason numbers, it will usually take less than 10 sec. to get an answer. If you are using the app with a patient, timing is critical.
5. The data displayed has been checked against and now agrees with the Johns Hopkins web site for both Partin and Han Tables. The actual display of the data continues to agree with the layout of the relevant study result papers, not the web site.
