香港北區醫院引入 會陰抽取前列腺組織 斷診準確度增 Transperineal Ultrasound Guided Prostate Biopsy (TPUS)

會陰穿刺 Transperineal Ultrasound Guided Prostate Biopsy (TPUS)
原文刊於《星島日報》 記者:朱海棋
香港前列腺癌每年有約二千個新症,成為第三大男性常見癌症。傳統檢測前列腺癌只可經直腸抽取前列腺組織,但只能局限地抽取後方的組織,影響準確度,而且直腸附近帶有糞便,細菌容易感染前列腺組織,更有病人因此引致敗血病入住深切治療部。為改善服務,北區醫院為全港首所全面引入經會陰抽取前列腺組織的公立醫院,增加診斷準確率,亦未有病人因檢測受感染,聯同威爾斯親王醫院整個新界東聯網去年至今,已完成至少六百個檢測個案。

前列腺的正常體積為栗子般大小,但男士到四十至五十歲後因賀爾蒙變化,前列腺會變得肥大壓着尿道,影響男士日常排尿。而較為嚴重的前列腺癌是繼肺癌及大腸癌後,男性常見的第三大癌症,每年有約二千名新症,約三十名男士便有一人患上前列腺癌。

傳統檢測前列腺癌時,醫生會以超聲波經直腸再用幼細針管抽取前列腺組織,但新界東醫院聯網外科(泌尿外科)副顧問醫生羅家麟指,經直腸檢測前列腺組織有局限,只能抽取後方組織,未能較全面抽取前方組織化驗。他又指直腸附近有糞便,檢測時約有百分之四機會令細菌感染前列腺引致敗血病,曾有病人因此要入住深切治療部及服食抗生素一星期。

香港首所公院引入新檢測法

北區醫院去年引入新檢測技術,由直腸檢測改由經會陰(踩單車時坐在單車椅的部位)抽取前列腺組織。羅家麟表示,在會陰檢測可以抽取不同前列腺的組織,增加檢測準確率,而過程亦無經直腸,故可以將感染率降至零。北區醫院及威爾斯親王醫院合共已完成至少六百個檢測個案。

新界東醫院聯網外科服務主任及名譽顧問醫生吳志輝補充,傳統直腸檢測時間約五分鐘,一個下午可以為十個病人檢測,而新技術檢測時間則為十分鐘,每個下午可檢測病人減至六至七個,故醫院已增加檢測時段。新界東醫院聯網外科(泌尿外科)顧問護師李淑賢指,新界東病人平均輪候四至五個月便獲安排檢測,情況較緊急人士會獲較優先進行。

現年六十五歲的鄧先生兩年前身體檢查時,獲醫生轉介進行前列腺檢測。當時他是透過傳統直腸檢測,事後出現發燒等感染情況,去年進一步檢測時則透過新技術化驗,他指事後一切如常,更笑言「第二日已經可以打麻將」。除了新界東聯網,其他聯網的醫院如屯門醫院、瑪麗醫院、瑪嘉烈醫院亦陸續開始使用新技術服務病人。
