Prostate needle biopsies are an essential step in the diagnostic evaluation of prostate cancer. The conventional ultrasound-guided transrectal needle biopsy entails a significant risk of infection, which with increasing antibiotic resistance is thought to increase in the future. This has sparked a renewed interest in transperineal prostate biopsies, as this approach avoids the multiple passages of the rectal mucosa, thus reducing the risk of infection significantly. This review describes the devolvement, technical aspects, and current recommendations of transperineal biopsies.
