INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to determine the variety and prevalence of renal and non-renal abnormalities detected on multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) that precluded patients from donating a kidney. METHODS: Institutional review board approval was obtained and the requirement for informed consent was waived. A retrospective, single-centre review of 701 patients (444 female, 257 male; age range 18-86 years; mean age 43.2±11.9 years) that underwent renal donor protocol MDCT was conducted...

INTRODUCTION: Non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer is the most expensive malignancy to treat. Current Canadian guidelines recommend repeat transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT) within six weeks after initial resection of T1 high-grade (T1HG) urothelial carcinoma, prior to initiation of intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin treatment. This is a burden on operating room usage and adds further cost and risk of complications. Internationally, major cancer centres report significant rates of recurrence and upstaging on repeat resection, however minimal Canadian data is available...

INTRODUCTION: Cabazitaxel is one of several treatment options available for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer who have progressed on docetaxel. Little is known about clinical factors that influence prognosis or treatment response for patients receiving cabazitaxel. Identifying prognostic and predictive factors could contribute to the optimal selection of patients for treatment after docetaxel. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients enrolled on the cabazitaxel Canadian Early Access Program (C-EAP) was performed...

INTRODUCTION: The natural history of prostatic lesions identified on multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) is largely unknown. We aimed to describe changes observed over time on serial MRI. METHODS: All patients with ≥2 MRI studies between 2008 and 2015 at our institution were identified. MRI progression was defined as an increase in Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS; version 2) or size of existing lesions, or the appearance of a new lesion PIRADS ≥4...

INTRODUCTION: We report our early clinical observations on the use of topical meloxicam and lidocaine gel for patients with vulvodynia. METHODS: This is an early experience in participants with a history of vulvodynia evaluated and treated at the Queen's University Pelvic and Bladder Pain Clinic. Combination meloxicam 0.3% and lidocaine 5% were provided to the participants and they were instructed to apply 5 cc to the vulvar area twice daily. Standardized assessment was conducted for each participant before the start of the topical therapy and again at one week included Interstitial Cystitis Symptom Index (ICSI), Interstitial Cystitis Problem Index (ICPI), and pain scoring (Likert) for vulvar pain, in addition to a subjective global assessment after a week of treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Renal tumour biopsies (RTBs) can provide the histology of small renal masses (SRMs) prior to treatment decision making. However, many urologists are reluctant to use RTB as a standard of care. This study characterizes the current use of RTB in the management of SRMs and identifies barriers to a more widespread adoption. METHODS: A web-based survey was sent to members of the Canadian and Quebec Urological Associations who had registered email address (n=767) in June 2016...

INTRODUCTION: It is an accepted axiom that academics must publish to be considered successful. Open-source journals are quickly gaining traction in the scientific community as an effective way to disseminate important research. The open-access movement includes many successful, well-respected operations, but has also spawned a plethora of journals, some predatory and others that appear to be amateurish academic traps. We provide a first look at open-source journals, both reputable and predatory, specifically pertaining to urology...

INTRODUCTION: This study investigates clinical significance of galectin-1 expression in carcinoma tissues, plasma, and lymphocytes of patients with clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC). METHODS: Galectin-1 expression was investigated, using immunohistochemistry, in 91 clear-cell RCC tissue sections, five angioleiolipomas tissue sections, and three oncocytomas tissue sections. As controls, normal tissue sections adjacent to each tumour and six benign renal tumour sections were examined...

INTRODUCTION: Prognosis in patients with cancer is influenced by underlying tumour biology and also the host inflammatory response to the disease. There is limited evidence to suggest that an elevated neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) predicts a poorer prognosis in patients undergoing nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The aim of this paper is to investigate if patients undergoing nephrectomy for RCC with NLR ≤4 have a better overall and recurrence-free survival than patients with NLR >4...

INTRODUCTION: Contemporary data regarding the effect of age, especially in the elderly patients, on cancer-specific mortality (CSM) for pT1a renal cell cancer (RCC) are lacking. The objective of the current study is to evaluate CSM in a large population-based cohort of surgically treated pT1a RCC patients according to age groups. METHODS: Within the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results database (2000-2013), we identified 37 121 pT1a RCC patients who underwent either partial or radical nephrectomy...

INTRODUCTION: Treatment decisions in localized prostate cancer are complicated by the available choices. A rapid-access cancer clinic (RAC) has been unique to Calgary, AB, since 2007. This RAC offers multidisciplinary prostate cancer education by a urologist, medical oncologist, and radiation oncologist. It is hypothesized that treatment utilization data from decisions taken at RAC may serve to benchmark the appropriateness of treatment decisions on a population level. METHODS: Records of patients with clinically localized prostate cancer in Alberta between October 1, 2007 and September 30, 2009 were reviewed with ethics approval...

INTRODUCTION: NATESTO® testosterone nasal gel (TNG) is a liquid gel that is applied in the nose for the treatment of male hypogonadism. There is a reasonable concern that administration of TNG to patients with active rhinitis could modify absorption. Results from two clinical studies are reported wherein subjects with allergic rhinitis (AR) subjects are treated with TNG. METHODS: The 24-hour pharmacokinetics (PK) and relative bioavailability of serum total testosterone (sTT) from TNG (11 mg tid ) were determined using a phase 1 Latin-square design with 18 eugonadal AR subjects crossed over between asymptomatic, symptomatic-untreated, and symptomatic-treated (oxymetazoline) conditions...

INTRODUCTION: Herein we examined the association between adiposity, as measured with computed tomography (CT), and biochemical recurrence (BCR) after RP. METHODS: Using axial CT images, preoperative fat mass index (FMI) was calculated for 698 men who underwent RP from 2007-2010 by using measurements of total surface area of adipose tissue at the L3 level. Obesity was classified according to NHANES standards for obesity (FMI >9 kg/m2 ). The associations between obesity and the distribution of adiposity (visceral vs...

INTRODUCTION: Social media (SoMe) have revolutionized healthcare, but physicians remain hesitant to adopt SoMe in their practices. We sought to assess graduating urology residents' practices of and attitudes toward SoMe. METHODS: A close-ended questionnaire, employing five-point Likert scales, was distributed to all final-year residents (n=100) in Canadian urology training programs in 2012, 2014, and 2016 to assess SoMe usage and perceived usefulness. RESULTS: All (100%) questionnaires were completed...
