OBJECTIVE: The prognostic relevance of primary location of urothelial carcinoma (UC) on survival has been poorly investigated. METHODS: The prospectively collected data from three EORTC advanced UC studies 30924 (M-VAC versus high dose M-VAC), 30986 (MCAVI versus GC arm, among patients unfit for CDDP) and 30987 (GC-Paclitaxel versus GC, among patients fit for CDDP) were used. Patients were grouped by primary tumor location as bladder (BCa) versus upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC)...

PURPOSE: Costly surveillance and treatment of bladder cancer can lead to financial toxicity (FT), a treatment-related financial burden. Our objective was to define the prevalence of FT among bladder cancer patients and identify delays in care and its effect on health-related quality of life (HRQOL). METHODS: We identified bladder cancer patients in the UNC Health Registry/Cancer Survivorship Cohort. FT was defined as agreement with having "to pay more for medical care than you can afford...

PURPOSE: To assess the risk of locally aggressive behavior in pure Gleason Score 6 (GS6) (Grade Group 1) prostate cancer, using contemporary grading criteria, which has only been studied in one prior cohort. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Consecutive radical prostatectomy (RP) specimens from an academic institution including 3291 men with GS6 and 4202 men with Gleason score 3+4=7 (GS347) (Grade Group 2) between 2005-2016. STATISTICAL ANALYSIS: For dichotomous variables, the Pearson's chi-square test...

PURPOSE: To determine if 'saturation' of the index-lesion during MRI-TRUS fusion-guided (fusion) biopsy decreases rate of pathological upgrade from biopsy to radical-prostatectomy (RP). MATERIALS/METHODS: A prospectively maintained single institution database was analyzed for patients who underwent both fusion and systematic biopsy followed by RP (2010-16). Index-lesion was defined as lesion with largest diameter on T2W-MRI. Patients with saturation of the index-lesion (SIL) had transrectal fusion biopsy targets obtained at 6mm intervals along the long axis of index-lesion; patients with nonsaturation of the index-lesion (NSIL) had only one target obtained from the lesion...

PURPOSE: To determine the utility of motor responses during Sacral Neuromodulation (SNM) lead placement by testing the hypothesis that a greater number of motor responses during intraoperative electrode testing is associated with more durable therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of all SNM lead placements at a large academic center from 2010-2015 was performed. All unilateral sacral lead placements with the presence or absence of a motor response documented discretely for each electrode were included...

PURPOSE: To determine if anesthetic type (general vs. spinal) would influence cancer recurrence following transurethral resections of bladder tumors. MATERIALS & METHODS: With institutional ethics board approval, electronic medical records of all patients who underwent a transurethral bladder tumor resection for non-muscle invasive urothelial bladder cancer between 2011-2013 at a single tertiary care centre were examined. Follow-up information was gathered for all patients in December 2016...

PURPOSE: To determine the predictors of short and long-term renal function impairment after partial nephrectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The clinical data of 769 consecutive patients submitted to partial nephrectomy were prospectively recorded in 19 urological Italian centers from 2009 to 2012 (RECORd1 Project). Of these, the clinical data of 708 patients alive, free from disease recurrence, and with a minimum 2-year functional follow-up were extracted. RESULTS: Patients underwent open (47...

PURPOSE: To evaluate recurrence outcomes of penile sparing surgery (PSS) in the largest multicenter cohort of patients to date. METHODS: We retrospectively identified patients treated with PSS from May 1990 to July 2016 at five tertiary referral institutions. Treatments consisted of circumcision, wide local excision, laser therapy with or without local excision, partial or total glansectomy, and glans resurfacing. Primary endpoint was local recurrence free survival (LRFS) and defined from initial treatment to time of local recurrence and estimated with the Kaplan-Meier method...

PURPOSE: Relative supersaturations of calcium oxalate, calcium phosphate, and uric acid are used clinically in kidney stone prevention. The magnitudes of association between relative supersaturation and stone risk require further quantification. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional study using 24-hour urine collections from Nurses' Health Study I (NHS I), Nurses' Health Study II (NHS II), and Health Professional Follow-up Study (HPFS) cohorts to quantify the association between calcium oxalate, calcium phosphate, and uric acid relative supersaturations levels and likelihood of stone formation...
