Radical cystoprostatectomy (RCP) followed by bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy and urinary diversion remains the gold-standard therapy for men with localized muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). Prostate cancer might be incidentally detected at the time of RCP with a reported prevalence of 24-51%. Typically, these patients are considered to have clinically insignificant disease, but data from emerging series challenge this assumption and suggest that some of these tumours might be aggressive, or somehow increase the aggressiveness of the associated MIBC, and can negatively influence the patient's overall survival outcomes...

CONTEXT: Renal transplantation is the gold standard renal replacement therapy in end-stage renal disease owing to its superior survival and quality of life compared with dialysis. When the potential recipient has a history of cancer, the waiting period before radiotherapy is usually based on the Cincinnati Registry. OBJECTIVE: To systematically review all available evidence on the risk of cancer recurrence in end-stage renal disease patients with a history of urological cancer...

OBJECTIVES: To characterize the current gender and subspecialty of those holding academic departmental administrative and educational leadership roles in urology. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional observational study of U.S. Urology Residency Programs in 2016 to 2017. Inclusion criteria were participation in the Urology Residency Match Program and having a department of urology website. From June 1, 2016 to August 20, 2016, each department's website was queried...

BACKGROUND: A new 5-tiered grading grouping system has recently been endorsed for reporting of prostate cancer (PCa) grade to better reflect escalating risk of progression and cancer death. While several validations of the new grade groupings have been undertaken, most have involved centralised pathological review by specialist urological pathologists. METHODS: Participants included 4268 men with non-metastatic PCa diagnosed between 2006 and 2013 from the multi-institutional South Australia Prostate Cancer Clinical Outcomes Collaborative registry...

BACKGROUND: By 2022, there will be 18 million predicted cancer survivors, which is an estimated 30% more than the number of survivors in 2012. In prostate cancer alone, the most common cancer in American men other than skin cancer, 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed during their lifetime. Nevertheless, only approximately 1 in 39 will actually die of the disease. Although life expectancy is often good, these men have multiple treatment management options to choose from, including active surveillance, surgery, or radiotherapy, each of which carries its own array of long-term adverse effects...

OBJECTIVES: To report oncological outcomes including biochemical recurrence (BR) following radical prostatectomy (RP) from a large consecutive cohort operated in an 18-year period. Additionally, an in-depth analysis of outcomes among D'Amico intermediate-risk patients is presented. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 2,091 patients with PCa who underwent RP at Department of Urology, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark between 1995 and 2013 were included. Univariate and multiple cause-specific Cox regression analyses for BR were applied using competing risk models...

INTRODUCTION: There have been significant effort and financial support to engage patients in the design and execution of medical research. However, little is known about the relative benefits or potential impact of involving patients in research, most efficient practices and systems to enhance their involvement, and potential barriers and challenges that are involved with engaging patients. In this review, we will discuss the value of patient centered research, review the challenges that many of these studies faced, and highlight potential future opportunities to enhance patient involvement in urologic research...

INTRODUCTION: The length of stay prior to surgery increases the risk of postoperative infections (PIs) in several surgical settings, such as cardiac, orthopedic, and general surgery. However, data for urological oncology procedures are limited. We examined PI rates after radical cystectomy (RC) according to the length of stay prior to RC (LOSPRC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 24,242 patients with bladder cancer treated with RC between 1998 and 2013 were abstracted from the National Inpatients Sample database...

CONTEXT: Optimal management for patients with intermediate-risk (IR) prostate cancer (PCa) remains controversial. Clinical metrics provide guidance on appropriate management options. OBJECTIVE: To report estimates for clinically relevant outcomes in men with IR PCa based on clinical and pathological features.

INTRODUCTION: The most important prognostic factor for oncological outcome of rectal cancer is radical surgical resection. In patients with locally advanced T4 rectal cancer (LARC) or locally recurrent rectal cancer (LRRC) (partial) resection of the urinary tract is frequently required to achieve radical resection. The psoas bladder hitch (PBH) technique is the first choice for reconstruction of the ureter after partial resection and this bladder-preserving technique should not influence the oncological outcome...

BACKGROUND: Geographic access-the travel burden required to reach medical care-is an important aspect of care. Studies, which typically rely on geographic information system (GIS) calculated travel times, have found some evidence of racial disparities in spatial access to care. However, the validity of these studies depends on the accuracy of travel times by patient race. OBJECTIVES: To determine if there are racial differences when comparing patient-reported and GIS-calculated travel times...

The high prevalence of prostate cancer (PCa) in elderly men and technical advances in early detection of localized PCa have led to continued efforts to develop new therapeutic options of minimally invasive nature in current urologic oncology community. Increasing newly emerging therapies are undergoing preclinical tests on the technical feasibility, efficacy and safety in animal experiments. The dog is an ideal large animal because of its similar anatomy to human and the capability allowing the use of the same medical devices applied in future clinical trials...

CONTEXT: The European Association of Urology Renal Cell Carcinoma Guideline Panel recently conducted a systematic review of treatment options for patients with advanced non-clear-cell renal cell carcinomas (RCCs), which showed a substantial lack of evidence for management recommendations.

PURPOSE: Patients' perspective of their treatment regime plays a vital role in its success. Recognizing the high prevalence of medicinal plant usage among Jamaicans at large, we investigated the engagement of such remedies by cancer patients, with the aim of uncovering self-medicating habits, perceptions and details of utilized plants.

CONTEXT: Radium-223 is an □ -particle transmitter with specific action on bone metastases. The Alpharadin in Symptomatic Prostate Cancer Patients (ALSYMPCA) study showed that radium-223 extended overall survival and delayed the onset of bone events in patients with symptomatic castration-resistant prostate cancer with bone metastases (mCRPC) and without visceral metastases, with a good safety profile. OBJECTIVE: To review the new scientific evidence on radium-223 based on prespecified and post-hoc analyses of the ALSYMPCA study and on early-access programs after the publication of the ALSYMPCA study, thereby providing new data on the management of patients with mCRPC...

Prioritization of patient and stakeholder engagement in the research process has been realized through increased funding and policy directives at the government level. Particularly, patient engagement in the preparatory research stage has driven development of patient-prioritized research questions. In this article, a successful example of patient-centered research prioritization is reviewed, and effective strategies and opportunities for patient engagement in urologic oncology research are described.
