PURPOSE OF REVIEW: As the population ages, urologic oncologists are caring for older and more vulnerable patients that must withstand complex surgical treatments. Our healthcare environment emphasizes surgical quality, reductions in length of hospital stay, reduced readmission rates, and high patient satisfaction. So those who manage urologic malignancies must be able to optimize their patients. Understanding the concept of frailty, how to diagnose it in a timely and reliable manner, appreciate its perioperative impact, and consider interventions to reduce its effects may improve surgical outcomes...

Purpose: Frailty is an important consideration in the management of lower urinary tract symptoms and erectile dysfunction in older men; frailty increases vulnerability to treatment-related adverse outcomes, but its burden is not known. The authors aimed to examine the burden of frailty and associated geriatric conditions in community-dwelling older men. Patients and methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted with 492 community-dwelling older men (mean age, 74...

RATIONALE, AIMS, AND OBJECTIVES: Prostate cancer (PC) presents with a high prevalence, but a low mortality. The evaluation of the risk-benefit ratio of current screening methods has led to conflicting results, which are reflected in some contradictory recommendations proposed by scientific and governmental entities. In this context of uncertainty, our objective is to verify the practices and beliefs of Brazilian physicians of different specialties regarding screening for PC. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted through a self-administered questionnaire survey during the main events of the target specialties (general practitioner, geriatrics, and urology) during the year 2016...

BACKGROUND: The aim was to analyse the association between severity of complications up to 30 days after surgery and pre-operative nutritional and physical performance parameters. METHODS: The participants were a subsample of the previously published PERATECS study (ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT01278537) and included 517 onco-geriatric patients aged ≥ 65 years, undergoing thoracoabdominal, gynaecological, or urological surgery. Post-operative complications were classified according to the Clavien Classification System (CCS)...

PURPOSE AND INTRODUCTION: A growing number of cancer patients are older adults aged 65 years and older. Patients with cancer are at increased risk for developing osteoporosis, falls, and fractures. We sought to identify the incidence of fractures in older adults who underwent cancer care between January 2013 and December 2015. METHODS: A comprehensive geriatric assessment was performed, and bone densitometry was measured at baseline, with a 2-year follow-up. RESULTS: In this study, among 304 patients with gastrointestinal, urologic, breast, lung, and gynecologic cancers we evaluated, and who completed the bone density testing (n = 199), 80% had osteoporosis or low bone mass (osteopenia)...

BACKGROUND: In many countries health policy encourages patients to choose their hospital, preferably by considering information of performance reports. Previous studies on hospital choice mainly have focused on patients undergoing elective surgery. This study examined a representative sample of hospital inpatients across disciplines and treatment interventions in Germany. Its research questions were: How many patients decide where to go for hospital treatment? How much time do patients have before admission? Which sources of information do they use, and which criteria are relevant to their decision? METHODS: Cross-sectional observational study covering 1925 inpatients of 46 departments at 17 hospitals in 2012...

CONTEXT: Urological cancers are common. Since the median age of diagnosis is 60-70 yr, many patients require geriatric as well as urological evaluation if treatment is to be tailored to individual health status including comorbidities and frailty. OBJECTIVE: To review the most important features of geriatric assessment and its expected benefits. We also consider ways in which collaboration between urologists and geriatricians and geriatric teams can benefit patient well-being...

OBJECTIVES: A rising number of patients with cancer are older adults (65 years of age and older), and this proportion will increase to 70% by the year 2020. Falls are a common condition in older adults. We sought to assess the prevalence and risk factors for falls in older patients with cancer. METHODS: This is a single-site, retrospective cohort study. Patients who were receiving cancer care underwent a comprehensive geriatric assessments, including cognitive, functional, nutritional, physical, falls in the prior 6 months and comorbidity assessment...

Each developed country faces an aging population. Increase of age rises the risk to develop urologic pathology especially in men. Routine investigation and diagnostic of urologic pathology important, however must take into account the patient in his globality (including age, comorbidities, drug medication as well as sociocultural environment). The aim of this article is to help the general practitioner in taking decisions with frequent uro-geriatric symptoms. Bladder catheterization remains an invasive treatment and indication should be regularly re-evaluated...

REVIEW
A Wiedemann
Urology will benefit by demographic change more than other disciplines in the next 10 years. Both number of patients and their intensity of treatment will increase. This implies the need of a reorientation of urology away from oncologic topics towards geriatric urology. Relevant issues are functional disorders of the lower urinary tract, infectiology, hematuria, and benign prostate hyperplasia. The legislature of North Rhine-Westphalia has already made the first step towards geriatric urology by the foundation of the ISAR screening for each geriatric patient outside geriatrics, which constitutes the possibility of beginning an early interdisciplinary dialogue...

INTRODUCTION: Urinary tract infection is the most common healthcare-association infection, especially because of urinary catheter. We evaluated our practices concerning catheter insertion and management in our institution. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a single-centre descriptive cross-sectional study during 1 week in September 2014 in all adult departments. We noted prevalence, indications, length, management of urinary catheter (UC) and symptomatic catheter-associated urinary tract infections (SCAUTI)...
