How to prepare for a Prostate Biopsy by Transrectal Route

Before the biopsy
Since the exam is done under local anesthetic, the patient does not need to fast. To be more comfortable, it is recommended he urinate before the biopsy.
It is important that the patient tell the doctor what medications he is taking, in particular any medication of the aspirin or anticoagulant type since these medications reduce the quality of blood coagulation and increase the risk of bleeding.

Is a rectal cleaning necessary?

Rectal cleaning is no longer required. A prior course of antibiotics is necessary. This antibiotic treatment limits the likelihood of prostate infection after the exam.
