IZIDORO, Lívia Cristina de Resende; VIEIRA, Tamires de Castro; OLIVEIRA, Lizete Malagoni de Almeida Cavalcante  e  NAPOLEAO, Anamaria Alves. Quality of life in men undergoing prostatectomy: integrative review. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2017, vol.18, n.1, pp.186-202. ISSN 1645-0086.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15309/17psd180116.

This study consists of an integrative review of the literature with the aim of summarizing the researches produced on Quality of Life (QoL) in men submitted to prostatectomy in published national and international publications from January 2009 to February 2014 in the PubMed, SciELO, LILACS and CINAHL. We identified 40 articles, which met the pre-established criteria. The analysis of the work allowed to identify main focus on the physical and symptomatological character in detriment to the psychological aspects referenced after the surgery. We observed gaps in the knowledge produced, such as, few Brazilian studies, studies of experimental designs or that demonstrate a greater level of evidence, lack studies with a focus on emotional aspects, absence of the definition of the construct used, lack of psychometric data of the instruments and Scales used and the prevalence of low evidence studies. However, it was possible to elaborate a summary of the scientific knowledge about QoL in prostatectomized men from the perspective of international and national literature, including several aspects that permeate this research.
